As mentioned in the newsletter the boys from (Matt Bigwood and Dave Harries) and I (plus hubby Stuart) popped down to East Sussex to film Mandy Shaw’s exhibition called ‘Quilts on the Farm’ where the work of her students was on display. The weather was glorious and the exhibition superb and we captured it all –including the bluebell woods and the Alpacas.

Then yesterday we spent the day with Mandy being shown round her workshop and finding out more about her new book ‘Stitch with Love’ which has 20 easy-to-sew projects that are based around 11 simple embroidery stitches – such a clever idea.(and in the shops now!)

Mandy was also good enough to share with us some of her secrets and we have a lovely simple button bracelet workshop to show you (and I came away with lots of lovely patterns and inspirations to share too!) All coming soon.
