Commission work is so highly personally rewarding work as it sparks many creative ideas.
So don’t be shy about contacting me with your wishes and likes. Today for example I am starting on work for a lady in south Africa who wants “our look” rather than the bright sunshine colours of Africa,
Of course I still supply the biggest collection of Liberty lawn in strips, pieces, and sample pieces, I am collating them into colour way sets, my current favourite is “mistral” teamed with rigorously washed linen and cotton. I will have plenty of hexagons at the shows, in packs of 50 ALL DIFFERENT DESIGNS, with matching paper templates, I have recently acquired a new batch of classic pieces to do this, plus die cut shapes in hearts and leaves.
Keep watching here or on my “facebook” page for more bundles, fabrics, liberty tana lawn collections and all things different,
Please note I will not be at Duxford this November but will be at the Knit & Stitch show at Alexandra Palace, London between the 10th and 13th of October, so if you are coming please drop by.
I have a good lot of big 4m bundles, many pale but sprinkled with the strong “old Swedish” range amongst these are some of the softest “old blue strippy” packs I have been able to make for some time, a real treat to work with too.
The range of “forgotton flannels ” increased dramatically a month or so ago, so plenty of soft florals in pink and blue are available, why not give flannel a go it’s so rewarding. The range of Liberty pieces has also increased, new sample books in the larger size and packs of 4 pieces 7.5″ x 5.5″ in a myriad of colours and designs, a real opportunity to increase your Liberty library.
I also have a limited number of bags of hexagons with papers, not quite firsts but they do contain a superb range of designs ready to sew, plus the trimming bags , now in two sizes 1m or 2m by weight approximately and when there gone this will be the last of them!
Please note, I will not be at the replacement venue for the Chilford Autumn show at Duxford show this coming week end, for no special reasons. My apologies for not updating the show list earlier.
But I will be back to Chilford/Duxford in March 2013 , I have plenty of stock so don’t hesitate to make contact if you would like something special in the meantime. I will be at the new show at the Royal Bath Showground at Shepton Mallett starting on Thursday November, 29th, Friday 30th with the last day Saturday 1st December, be lovely to see you all there.
I do have all the Liberty pieces now, plus die cut hearts and leaves and coming soon Dresden plate pieces. The bags of Liberty trimmings are back, very suitable for card making, decoupage, tiny piecing, plus things I don’t know about.
