They loosely broadened the era to include the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. The fabric range they have used complements the era, producing a vintage feel with a contemporary twist.
Over twenty projects are interwoven with Florrie's memories, Betty's rhymes and recipes, and some really beautiful imagery.


The book is only £9.74 in our SUMMER SALE! 

New in this week! 

We have just had a delivery of more Moda 'Grunge Hits the Spot' fabrics with beautiful grey, black and dark green. The fabric is included in our SALE at only £11.20 per metre.

Hello
 We have added a new class for anyone who is a beginner to patchwork on July 8th, 10:15am-12:30pm.

In the class you will learn skills that you will put together to make a cushion. You will be covering piecing, decorative stitching, overcasting stitch and how to make an envelope back. You will go home with a finished cushion at the end of the class,
This class is ideal for anyone who would like to start patchworking and isn't sure how to begin.

The class is £15 which includes the fabrics to make the cushion.
