New packaging policies - improving our eco credentials!

Our new year's resolution this year is to replace as much of our plastic packaging as possible with eco-friendly alternatives. The first batch have arrived, new clear bags for fabric packs - they look like plastic but are made from potato/corn starch so are fully biodegradable and compostable!

As the year goes on we will be using up all our current supplies, every time something runs out we will be replacing with recyclable and biodegradable products, hoping to be plastic free by this time next year!

Christmas fabric now available with Hygge and Elegant Christmas!

We have completed our Christmas collections for this year with the addition of Hygge by Lewis & Irene, and Elegant Christmas from Blank Quilting.

Hygge is inspired by trips across Nordic countries - if you haven’t heard of Hygge (pronounced Hoo-Guh) then you will more than likely have felt it before - it’s a delightful Danish and Norwegian word that can only be translated as a sense of cosiness or contentment, and the Hygge fabrics all transmit this feeling with their Christmassy colours and prints! There are also two Advent calendar panels and a stocking panel available, as well as a stash pack and discounted fat quarter pack.

Elegant Christmas, by Gina Linn for Blank Quilting, really lives up to its name - beautiful prints including baubles and snowflakes in soft grey and white with metallic silver highlights make up the collection, creating a classy look for a grown up Christmas! Again, we have a fat quarter pack or stash pack of the range.
