Mystery quilt Part 1

Workshops

Our Mystery Quilt with Sylvia Critcher is a great way to use up scraps and to get your creative juices running. Just as a reminder this project has been split into 4 sections, which will go up onto the site each Friday in January;  part 1 today includes your cutting instructions and how to make the block and as a subscribed member you can play catchup at any stage – so don’t worry about missing anything. Watch Now+

(and if your New year’s resolution is to make a dent in that fabric stash, keep an eye open for Throwback Thursday next week  as we are revisiting a great traditional scrap quilt with Valerie )

 

Interview with the Stitch witch

Out and About

We have more footage from our visit to the West Country Quilt & Textile show last November and this time we encouraged the magical Lynette Harris – The Stitch Witch – onto the stand to show us some of the goodies she sells, which appeal to all levels of sewers,  and also share with us her enthusiasm for patchwork, as well as her top tip! Watch Now+

Shop

We’ve also added some new items from The Stitch Witch to the shop this week which you’ll find in either the Kits, Patterns or Fabric sections including the Crazy dog quilt kit that Lynette talks about in the video
