Craig Joubert

Craig Joubert has been marbling since 1992 and loves to share his passion for marbling art with anyone willing to learn a new skill. He tells us that it might look complicated, but it is easy to do. Every design is unique. And it is fun to do for most ages.

Terial Magic Spray

So what's all the magic about?   This product has been flying off our  shelves so I decided to have a look and see why. Terial Magic is a spray on fabric stabilizer that washes out of your garment, quilt or art after it's finished; - it stablizes the fabric so that you can use it a little bit like paper - so cutting out shapes such as feathers or petals to create designs with your fabric scraps becomes very easy - how about giving this idea a try (pic taken from issue 41 of Homemaker);   Terial Magic Spray: - has been created to prevent the fabric from fraying for 3D textile art - Stabilizes fabric ready for embroidery - even stretchy fabrics and then just washes out.

Out & About on the Site

Today we join the London Quilters at the opening ceremony of their biennial exhibition called ‘Coming Home’;  the exhibition runs through until 4th January at the Swiss Cottage Library in London NW3.   You will see that Tracy Chevalier (author and quilter) was there to do the official speech and we were excited to be able to interview her about her own very first quilt – which is also on display at the exhibition.

Filming date with Kate Crossley

Spent a really lovely day yesterday with Matt & Dave at Kate's house filming some of the great textile work that she creates;  We also got to take a long good look at the wonderful Grandfather Clock she made and entered into the Quilt Creations section of Festival of Quilts 2014     (thanks to Robert Crossley for the picture) - for which she won the 1st prize - which you will see was/is well deserved.

Pizza Topping a success

I have just watched Valerie Nesbitt’s demonstration on making a Pizza Topping with scraps.What a very useful idea, I shall certainly be more frugal with my left over bits and bobs. Thank you, Ann Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your pizza topping workshop! Great fun. Jo and now Linda Seward has shown us how to create Confetti Applique.
