New Arrivals!

The long-awaited ‘Morris Holiday’ is now in the shop.  It’s as gorgeous as we all hoped – see for yourself…………..







We’ve got Layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls and 5 bolts of fabulous patterns (in addition to the ones shown here, there’s a pale gold on cream and a lovely gold on gold – you can just see it in the jelly roll in the first photo, between the 9″ and the 9 3/8″ marks).

I don’t think summer wants to end so Christmas feels a long way off – plenty of time to make lots of lovely Christmas gifts for friends and family.




We are having a ‘Pre-Summer’ sale this month with up to 50% off selected ranges and further savings on all fabric, haberdashery, wadding and threads.
Come along between Tuesday 12th – Saturday 16th June and grab a bargain.


The shop is bursting with new, exciting fabric!  Latest to arrive is Janet Clare’s fabulous ‘Ahoy, me hearties’.  The gorgeous feature print with ships scudding along on the high seas is joined by her lovely dark blue whale print.  We’ve got Layer cakes and Charm packs as well as yardage.


Also new in the shop is the new and delicious ‘William Morris – from the V&A collection’.  This collection is super lovely – we’ve got loads of yardage, Layer cakes, Charm packs, mini charm packs and Jelly Rolls of this range.


Last, but not least is the latest range from Fig Tree & Co. called ‘Hazel & Plum’.  This collection is beautiful and fresh with lime greens, coral, yellow and brown.


We hope you have a lovely festive season,

Alison & Gerald.
