Decorating your home for Christmas seems to have started earlier this year as we all need cheering up. There is still time to create more magic though.
Valerie has 3 Christmas projects for you starting with a lovely circular table mat. This would grace any festive feast. She has designed it to be very economical on fabric too. She also shows us how to make Christmas table mats using pre-printed panels as a focus. Finally, in our technique Thursday video she shows us how the stitch and flip method, which means the projects are quilted at the same time, can be used to produce Christmas stockings or place mats
Anne Baxter is also in a Yuletide mood, creating her lovely Rudolph applique wall hanging. Gail Penberthy, still on a Christmas theme, brings us a wide variety of Redwork embroidery projects.
Two workshops that could work as gift ideas are the lovely Dog Rose pin-cushion workshop with Sylvia Critcher. This also comes as a kit and is our Product of the Month in December with free UK postage. Meanwhile Jennie Rayment suggests using up your scraps to create another useful pincushion (or doorstop)
For those in the learning mood, Jane Czaja, our crochet expert, shows you how to work the three stitches that she says is all you will need to enjoy crochet yourself.
And finally sit back and enjoy this stunning display quilt which is made up of 31 pieces of textile art , inspired by BBC Radio 4’s famous shipping forecast and made by Delia Salter
