Why we tear.

Hello, it's Lucy here!
I get a lot of e-mails asking us about our block of the month, and stash clubs. People signing up, questions about fabric and what not. I also get a lot of e-mails from customers all around the world asking why we tear our fabrics.

Fabrics rips straight on the grain, every time! We know it leaves a frayed edge and yucky little threads but trust me, you want us to tear it. We see so many bolts where the fabric is rolled on crooked, and if we were to cut you get would a very warped, crooked piece of fabric. Plus, as skilled as we all are at cutting there's no guarantee we will cut straight every time. No matter how hard we try!
We always make sure we give you the correct amount of fabric for your projects even once the torn edge is sliced away.

The Gypsy Wife block of the month is now full! We won't be cutting any more programs but we will be developing this quilt into a pattern. Best to join our mail list if you wish to know when new patterns are released.

I still have places in Bring Me Flowers Round 2 by Jen Kingwell.
And don't forget you can join Stash Club at any time!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Thats really handy info - I think I will start tearing. I did the Gypsy Wife BOM last year and the tearing wasn't a problem at all. (still finishing it....)

I really appreciate it when a seller tears the fabric, it's so much more accurate than cutting.

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!


Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Here are the three biggies answered straight from the horse’s mouth (neigh!)!
“I heard you’re closing?!”
Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip. We will be moving ag…
