Welcome to 2023!

As we start a new year, if you're like me you're often torn between wanting to start a new exciting project or finishing off some UFOs. Maybe it's best to do a bit of both! Whatever keeps your sewing mojo ticking along, is what you should be doing.
If you are looking for new inspiration and a new project, then we have several tempting suggestions for you. Read further on in our newsletter for full details.
  • Natalie Bird (The Birdhouse) has a new BOM running through Homespun magazine, and as always her quilt promises to be absolutely gorgeous.
  • Cover and personalise some of our Rinske Stevens box kits - or watch out for dates for classes to learn how to get a professional look.
