Show Preparations

It's all go here this week, with two weeks to go before the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycraft Show in Harrogate, followed closely after by Quilts UK in Malvern (eek!) I'm sewing and cutting like mad!! As well as some gorgeous fat quarter bundles, strip sets and charm packs...

I'm been finishing up the instructions and packing for my Red Brick Tile quilt. I decided to wash it, it being red and everything... and with a couple of colour catchers, it came out fine.. thank goodness, you know that heart in your mouth feeling... thank the world for colour catchers!! I include a note at the end of all my kits recommending these babies, they really do work. This quilt is so big, it nearly filled our little garden! The kit will be available on the website after the shows in June. 

I've also been working on a couple new Quick & Easy / Beginner's Quilt Kits, one in that gorgeous Coonawarra Red collection and another is this ditsy Confetti range from Dashwood. The Harrogate show is my first one of these Hobbycraft shows, so I'm hoping it attracts new quilters as well as the more addicted, sorry experienced.

So if you're in the Harrogate or Malvern areas in May, why not visit to one of these wonderful quilt and craft shows, details as follows;

  1. Your precuts look very tempting indeed! Wish I could come along to the show. It would be so nice to meet you in person!

    1. Thank you Lorna, I do enjoy making them. And yes, it would be wonderful to meet you 'in real life' one day :)

  2. Beautiful quilt! Hope the shows go well for you. :)

    1. Glad you like the quilt, and thank you, fingers crossed :)

  3. What a ton of work - I do hope the show is a success for you! Thanks for letting us all know about it!

    1. Thanks Susan, it's hard work, but who doesn't love playing with fabric!! ;)

  4. Shame I can't get to this Harrogate show. I always go to the end of November one but the bus company isn't doing it this year so I don't know if we will get there. I hope it goes well for you.

  5. I simply wrap my sleeping in a largish plastic cover, such as a rain poncho. I sometimes use a garbage bag when I'm in a hurry and can't secure a poncho quickly, but if a garbage bag snags on a sharp branch and there is a chance that water will seep through.
