This month's giveaway is a Fat 8ths Pack in these 8 luscious colours from Oakshott Fabrics. The Fat 8ths are 10″ x 27″ / 25 cm x 69 cm. They are 100% mercerised shot cottons – the colourway combines a base colour warp with a complementary or contrasting weft thread. This produces the trademark ‘shot’ effect when colours appear to shimmer and ‘move’ depending on how the light falls. It lends extra depth and texture to your project. You can use them for quilting, patchwork and general sewing. To enter the competition just send an email entitled OAKSHOTT to firstname.lastname@example.org . The competition closes 31st August 2021.
This month's giveaway is the Lesser Spotted White Butterfly Trapunto kit by Sylvia Critcher. This is a small corded and stuffed kit that makes up into a 6″ block. Sylvia combines several quilting techniques to make this simple, but delightful and effective block. She uses Italian corded work, Trapunto stuffed work, French cording and English quilting techniques. As a kit it comes complete with calico, fabric, butter muslin wadding and stuffing wool. (needle and thread not included). To enter the competition just send an email entitled BUTTERFLY to email@example.com. The competition closes 31st July 2021.
