Popping up with Sally Holman in Southwold

Well it appears to be May already and, after a great Easter weekend in Southwold, it’s time for another pop-up!  Over the last couple of years that we’ve been popping up at The Swan Hotel, we’ve been lucky enough to see a steady increase in visitors and now it’s become a 4 day social gathering of lovely people who call in to see us and show us what they’ve been making (and to buy fabric of course- but that’s not compulsory!).  What a great way to spend a long weekend! We’ll have some new fabric – including this French General Le Bouquet Francais – and more scrap bags of course…



This weekend we’re delighted to have  expert quilter Sally Holman in residence.  She will be holding Make and Take classes of one hour which will involve creating a fabric landscape using a variety of techniques.  The cost is £6.00 including kit – a great way to spend a creative hour!  If you would like to book a place please email us or you can just turn up on the day.  Classes will be at the following times:

Sat 24th & Sun 25th May –
11.00am to 12 noon, 1.00 to 2.00pm, 3.30 to 4.30pm
Monday 26th May –
11.00am to 12 noon, 1.00 to 2.00pm, 3.00 to 4.00pm

and we’ll be there from Friday 23rd until Monday 26th May from 10.00am until 5.00pm (or later if we’re having fun!)

Come and say hello!

From Duxford to Southwold

Well this time three weeks ago we were setting up at Duxford for the Spring Quilt Festival and this afternoon we’re setting up for our latest pop up shop at Soutwold.  It’s all go!  Thanks to all our lovely customers who came to say hello at Duxford.  As always, it was great fun meeting you all, seeing what you’re making, and generally having a good time surrounded by fabric.  We’ll be back in November.

Thanks also to Nicola who took the photo and lent us her amazing (and much admired!) quilt made with Mango Salsa pre cuts that you can see in the background.

As many of you already know, we’re off to Southwold again this weekend for another pop up shop.  We’ll be in The Cygnet Room at The Swan Hotel from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st March from 10.00am so what better way to spend some of your Easter weekend than having a look at our fabrics.  Let’s face it, the weather is not shaping up to be particularly spring-like but once you’re in our fabric room you’ll be transported to another dimension never mind another season!

We’ll have our Simply Color quilt there – this lovely blend of green, plum and grey proved a huge hit at Duxford – so much so that we only have a few fabrics left but plenty of Moda Bella Solids to go around.

And we’ll also have a new collection from Benartex called Casablanca.

February Fabric Sale

So it’s still cold and a bit bleak out there – or hotter than a shearer’s armpit depending on which part of the world you’re in!  Either way we thought it would be a great idea to brighten up everybody’s day and have a sale.  Our shelf space seems to be disappearing by the day and, as we’ve got some fab new fabrics on order, we thought what better way to clear a bit of room than to get you to help us out…

The collections are clockwise from top left, Floral Fancies, 30s Playtime, Blueberry Crumb Cake, Lilac Parade, Modern Edge and Westminster.

Each collection has between 5 and 10 fabrics so head on over to the website and have a closer look and don’t forget to keep an eye on it as we’ll be adding to the sale in the coming days.
