If you love the big bold colours and patterns of 1950s-1970s designers like Lucienne Day, Jaqueline Groag, Tom Mellor and Robert Stewart then Meggy Magpie’s on Ebay is a great place to look for glorious vintage fabrics.
The good news for us is that Meg, the owner, is going to give Very Berry readers a 10% discount on a permanent basis! Hurrah! Whilst we sort out the practicalities of the discount, Meg and I thought it would be great for me to introduce her and her shop, and to have a little Christmas giveaway of a scrap bundle from Meggy Magpie’s.
Gorgeous or what? There’s 20″ square of fabric all together in the bundle, and it includes Cadenza by Lucienne Day, Flowerpots by Tom Mellor for David Whitehead, and Aquarius for Jonelle by Jacquline Groag.
Meg opened her shop a couple of years ago, partly as an outlet for fabric collecting habit, partly because of her enthusiasm to share these brilliant designs and partly because she wants to do her bit to help us all reuse, reduce and recycle. So her customers get the opportunity to be green as well as get their hands on some fantastic designs. Doing your bit has never seemed so easy!
The giveaway will run until midnight (UK time) Sunday 18 Dec and I will make the draw on Monday morning. Meg has promised to try and get the bundle into the post on Tuesday if we have the winner’s details, so you could get a rather tremendous little Christmas treat… To enter, just leave a comment telling us what you love about vintage fabric, or what you would do with the bundle if you won it.
