Site Upgrade Coming Soon

July 21st, 2014

From around 28th July, you will notice some changes to the shape of the video screen as we have been busy converting all the videos to a format that is more user friendly, especially for those on iPads and tablets: you should notice that the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page

When you notice the change has happened, iPad and tablet users won't have to use Puffin, but you can use your regular browsers if you prefer, (eg Safari on iPad, Internet on Android tablets) as you would for other websites you visit.

If you view on a normal computer, laptop or Mac, you continue to view as normal, but again the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page

Any questions when it happens - just get in touch

National Patchwork Championships at Sandown 2014

June 27th, 2014

Had a great time with lots of visitors and both Jennie and I enjoyed meeting so many of our viewers - thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Also bumped into many of our contributors, but a couple of new people we will be following:  first Shirley Bloomfield who is an embroiderer with a new bok out Beyond the Applique Garden, which we will be featuring on the site as well as a delightful tablerunner - so keep an eye on the shop:

and Nancy Adamek, who is passionate about paper piecing (!);   lovely work and a new supplier to the patchwork world:

here is an idea from her stand (it's just 7" across)

and if you want to know more, and/or order paper pieces just visit her website: (we love to support home grown industries)
