Fabric update

lovely Jenaveve fabrics by Valori Wells at Gone to EarthOver at the Gone to Earth blog there is a giveaway of some very pretty Valori Wells fabric from the Jenaveve collection. These are lovely linen-cotton blend fabrics and and Gone to Earth is a fab shop, so I urge you to go round and take a look. I used the red Pebbles fabric recently as a border on a knitting needle wrap – it’s gorgeous to work with.


Jasmine blouse from Collette patternsYou can pre-order the new season Collette patterns from M is for Make at a 10% discount. There’s a limited number of these pre-orders, so get your skates on. These are lovely, and you can read more about them on the M is for Make blog.  I think my favourite is this lovely blouse called Jasmine – maybe I really need to get over my fear of making clothes.


There’s free shipping at Doughty’s this weekend (until midnight Monday) if you spend more than £20. You just need to enter the coupon code ‘shipfree’ to qualify for the saving.


Tarika in gem from the Fabric LoftThe Sunday Stash fabric at The Fabric Loft is called Tarika from the Kumari Gardens collection from Dena Designs. It’s on offer at £9 per metre rather than the usual £10.50.


There’s still time to enter the latest Sewing Directory competition being run in conjunction with RUCraft. The fab prize is a copy of Quilt a Gift for Little Ones and 1m of fabric of your choice from the shop. You have until Tuesday 6th September to enter.


River Fabrics is holding a giveaway in conjunction with a lovely blog called Rags to Bags. You can win some great FQs from the Free as a Bird collection by Momo. This giveaway is open until 9 September.


I’m not sure what is happening over at Cornwall Fabrics – sadly their webshop appears to be closed until further notice. They are still trading on Ebay however, and as far as I can tell, there are reductions on all their fabrics (including lots of Michael Miller, Alexander Henry, Moda and more). There are some wonderful bargains to be had – but I do hope that this isn’t a bad sign for this shop which I know is well regarded.


Think that will do for me today… I have a lot of sewing mess to go and clear up downstairs! Hope I haven’t missed anything exciting – am always happy to hear of stuff (new shops, good sales or giveaways) – just drop me an email. Finally don’t forget our fabric stash-boosting Blogiversary giveaway.. you have until midnight today (Sunday 4th) to enter.  Thanks again for all the lovely comments that you’ve left about our blogging efforts – it’s hugely appreciated and encourages us to move on with renewed enthusiasm for another year of posts!
