Happy New Year!

Well, as we enter 2021 the dreaded Corona virus is still rampaging, and the notion of attending textile fairs and craft exhibitions still seems a long, long way off! Although the postponed Compton Verney Textile Fair of November 2020 is re-scheduled for March 2021, which certainly doesn’t sound that far off, but whether it will go ahead is another matter, sadly.

I have really missed attending fairs, they are vital to my business as a way of getting what I design/make under your noses! And I love to hear the feed back and generally get an overall view of what the people attending the fairs are noticing and buying. They are also fun, and obviously good for making sales too! But we’ll see……I do hope to be getting out out there soon and showing off some new designs and embroidery kits.

I have two new fabric designs that I designed last October, and they are Venetian Squares and Venetian Tumbling Blocks. They were initially formed after looking at patchwork blocks, using a diamond template……Tumbling Blocks is a classic patchwork design. It was my mother who noticed how much my designs were looking like Venetian floor tiles and she then lent me a book which made it obvious that they did! Hence their names……

The two new designs are pictured above and are now on the website shop, I do hope that you like them. It was a pleasure for me to do something geometric, it made a nice change 🙂
