New Videos Every Friday

 
 

Just a week to go before Santa arrives and with the children home too we realise time will be precious. So we have some last minute decoration ideas that you can make with their help and some instant download patterns for you in the shop section below, as well as new videos that you can sneak off to watch when you need / want a quiet five minutes to yourself with a well deserved cuppa and a mince pie! 

 
 
 
Gingerbread Men with Kate Percival
 
 

Workshops

There is still time to make Kate Percival’s  Gingerbread Men: or perhaps you’d prefer Anne Baxter’s Reindeer wall hanging  which is mostly fused, as is the Gold bias tree from Valerie.

 
 
 
 
Yo Yo Santa
 
 

To keep little hands busy – how about the Yo Yo Santa  – no time to make yo-yo’s?  then substitute wadding or glue on some cotton wool balls.

 if you are a paid subscriber, all of these workshops have downloadable patterns/workshop notes with the video , so you can make a start straight away!

 
 
 
Christmas Candlemat in Red and Green
