There are four of us in the shop - Marie is the owner, has been for just over 7yrs, and she set up the blog originally, with Alana, our youngest member of staff (!!)
Christine is Marie's mum-in-law and our resident expert on the embroidery machines.
Me? - I'm Sheila, the obsessive quilting one and I also blog over at bluepatchquilter
Our shop is a bit of an Aladdin's Cave - we stock an ever growing range of 100% cottons for patchwork, lots of polycotton, plain & patterned, utility fabrics like calicos and curtain lining, fleeces, furs, dress linings and some dressmaking fabric, as well as a large range of haberdashery. We are also an agent for Janome sewing machines.
We run small classes in the shop in machine embroidery and patchwork & quilting (new P& Q programme starting soon)
In less than 2 weeks we will be trading as usual at the Loch Lomond Quilt Show - if you haven't been to this excellent show, I really recommend a visit.
Marie will have lots of bargains this year and will also be launching two new kits to make these quilts -
This one is Quick and Easy Baltimore and the fabric is all 100% Thimbleberries cottons - the kit has everything - yes everything needed except wadding.Most of the pieces have been pre-cut to size.
This is Lemon Squeezy, updated in our newest range, Lollipop, by Sandy Gervais, for Moda.
Both of these quilts are suitable for beginners and would make great gifts.
We hope you will bookmark our blog - we will try our best to update regularly with all our news.
