New craft kits and The Sweet Life is here!

A few months back I showed you some EPP hexies and suggested I had a plan for them. Well I had decided to produce a cushion cover kit for hand sewers, and though I finished the cushion ages ago, producing the kit feels like I have actually had to give birth to it!
I think it’s because I have so much else going on at the moment, but anyway, it is finally here. You can buy it online or at our Edinburgh shop and it contains all fabric, wadding, DMC perle number 8 threads, needle, full instructions and 3 sheets of paper templates, and costs £14.99.
Or you can buy a copy of the excellent Homemade with Love magazine for Aug/Sept as it is a featured project in here.

Another ‘new delivery’ this week is a kit for the Garden Shed Wall Hanging made with Cori Dantini’s new The Sweet Life fabric line (which is here in store now, more below!)

This is the first time I’ve done a quilt kit, and it is much easier to put together then a fancy-stitched cushion! The kit contains enough fabric for quilt top and binding along with full instructions, and costs £34.99.

Or you can download the FREE pdf and buy your own fabric and make it anyway.
Yes, The Sweet Life fabric is finally here, in stock in the shop and listed online!

It’s absolutely gorgeous and a wonderful addition to any of last year’s Beauty is You that you have left, or are hoarding!

We’ve put together fat quarter and fat eighths bundles with 11 fabrics each.

Plus this incredible ‘made for adventure’ panel which we are selling per 60cm panel for £8.99.

Now it’s time for the Stitch Gathering countdown – less than a week to go and we are all getting so excited!
