We have some lovely new gifts in the shop designed by Mary Fellows, Aprons, Shoppers and Tea Towels with ‘Made in England’ and ‘Make do and Mend’ printed in great colours. I think the Make do and Mend shopper would make a great place to stash your fabric! Why not treat the man in your life to a Made in England apron, put your feet up and let him cook you a treat!

Our Saffron Criag fabrics have arrived and boy oh boy were they worth the wait! You will find them in a new category ‘New Designers’. These designs are sold by the metre, the smallest piece you can buy is a quarter metre, if you wanted 1/2 metre uncut just add 2 units to your basket, if you want 1 metre uncut add 4 units to your basket – couldn’t be easier. The Fields Range (some of which are pictured) would make a lovely quilt, whilst the owl and tree designs are really fun – go on, I dare you to resist!

My niece is modelling a very sweet tunic top made by my mother-in-law (thank you Rosemarie!). The pattern used was from the first issue of the new magazine SEW. We used Feathered Friends Yellow for the main body and Apple Dot Orange for the trim. Its quite a simple tunic to make and looks very summery!

We’ve got some lovely new Kokka prints, the flower designs would make great curtains. The Red Riding Hood and Strawberry prints are just adorable and would make super cute dresses – perfect for summer! Check out our ‘Whats New’ page for all the new designs.

We are very excited about a new line of fabrics soon to be in the shop by Saffron Craig. The Fields range with its gorgeous colours and dandelion seedheads would make a lovely quilt. We’ve also got a lovely tree and owl print on its way. Keep a look out in the shop, they should be here within the week!
