Norrland by Bethan Janine for Dashwood Studios




This years fastest-collection-to-disappear-from-the-shelves (but thankfully can be promptly re-stocked) award goes to Norrland, designed by Bethan Janine for Dashwood Studios.

Those woodland creatures have got everybody swooning and the double edged border fabric is begging to be made into a dress, or a bag, or a lampshade… (for a really simple yet gorgeous DIY lampshade, check out our needcraft kit)

Winter Whispers fabric collection





This Winter Whispers panel was very popular at Festival of Quilts; it is such a graceful design and the wintery theme doesn’t just limit it to Christmas. The range comes with supporting fabrics that allow you to make the panel into a bigger quilt project or to simply add a border, and are also lovely by themselves. [Sorry, this panel has now sold out!]

Magical Moments fabric collection by Stof





Magical Moments is a metallic collection from Stof which comes in three colourways; Christmas, Copper and Storm. The collection offers something different for anyone looking to move away from tradition style.

The dark metallics have a particularly sophisticated feel and the advent calendar offers something for “grown ups” who still want their chocolate!
