New Moda Meadow Friends full fabric range now in!

Uploaded to the website today we have the full range of Moda Meadow Friends patchwork fabrics, designed by Deb Strain - as she describes it: 'We live in the woods with a stream and when our children were little they would spend hours playing there. Frogs, turtles, slamanders and bugs were brought home by my son. Our daughters were amazed by the flowers, butterflies and hummingbirds on the path to the creek. This group captures the whimsical fun of a day spent outdoors with all the "critters" that little boys and girls love.'

Available in a selection of discounted fat quarter packs, stash packs as well as charm packs, jelly rolls and layer cakes, this is a great fun range that kids will adore!

New arrivals and re-opening times!

Firstly, thank you for all your comments - our new baby girl, Kira, arrived on the 13th May, and is now home safe and sound. We have been in the Singleton hospital NICU until last Thursday, so are a bit behind with the re-opening of the shop - she had some serious lung problems at birth, but she is fine now, and very cheeky with it - as can be seen, she is very fond of blowing rasbrries! We are now open for orders, however to give the maternity cover (my brother Geraint!) time to learn the ropes no orders will be dispatched until next week.

Obviously, our heartfelt thanks go to the staff of the NICU, and I would like to draw attention to the charity Project Linus, which is one that we quilters can contribute to. Although just a small part of what goes on in the special care baby units, having seen the quilts used by premature babies, and my little one, first hand, I can honestly say they are very much appreciated by parents and staff alike.

Pelenna Patchworks temporarily closed.

Hi all, you may have seen our website and shop is temporarily closed - as our newsletter subscribers will already know, this is because I am expecting a baby (due today!), so for the moment we are not taking any orders online or otherwise as there is the possibility we will not be able to get them sent out, as well as the fact that moving around at the moment is becoming increasingly difficult!

As we are a home-based business, we will be remaining closed until baby is safely arrived, home and settled in - all going well we will be re-opening by the end of May. Thank you for all your good wishes,
Sarah x
