Fabric News Update

I am awfully behind with my work (we had a slight drama over the weekend when our boiler malfunctioned and kept tripping out the electricity!!), but would hate not to do my fabric update… so here’s a very-quickly-pulled-together collection of snippets that have caught my eye over the last week…

There’s 10% 0ff felt until Tuesday at Seamstar, and don’t forget their Flickr competition – you need to enter before Tuesday. The prize is £100 in vouchers for Seamstar.


Alice at Backstitch has put together some lucky dip scrap packs (oh how I love scrap packs!) – 100g of scraps for just £6. A bargain and surprise all in one..


There’s a clearance offer at Doughty’s on the Fabric Freedom All About Colour fabrics – these are available at £5.99 per metre. There’s some excellent blenders here at a great price.


The busy bees at Blooming Felt have been working hard at adding loads of functionality for customers to their website. This is the kind of stuff I love! So they have a new loyalty scheme earning 1 point for every £1 you spend – you can read more about the scheme just here. They also have a new Wish List facility which is really useful.


Fabric Rehab have a wonderful giveaway of Carolyn Gavin’s lovely new collection Soul Garden (see pic!). There are 15 (fifteen!) FQs up for grabs – if you leave a comment before Wednesday the 15th.


Meanwhile Lynne at Lily’s Quilts is giving away a most amazing prize – a Colourbox (that’s 100 Fat 8ths) of Oakshott shot cottons.  Brilliant prize – I have everything crossed.. Meanwhile, check out what Lynne has been making with her shot cottons – isn’t it gorgeous?!


The Sewing Directory competition gives you a chance to win a bundle of Fat Quarters from the Sleeping Beauty collection by Nel Whatmore – you have until Tuesday 21st Feb to enter this one.


I’ll be back tomorrow with my own little giveaway of this uber-cool book.

  1. I just wanted to say a big thank you from a starting-out designer-maker. Having spent many hours trawling the web tracking down fabric etc I find myself continually coming back to you as a reference point, particularly your big list of fabric shops and weekly sales (how easy is it to spend money on beautiful fabric!) Keep up the good work !!x
