New addition to the HQ Team

This lovely lady has just joined the HQ team!  She's stylish AND she's fabric mad, just like the rest of us ... problem is, she's not got a name, poor love. Well we can't have that, can we?
Enter our competition (just for fun) to give her a fitting name by leaving a comment here on this post - and if you're passing through Wendover, give her a wave ... she might just wave back .... OK, maybe not but do pop in to our little shop upstairs at the Courtyard Gallery on the Highstreet. There's someone here 10am to 3pm Tuesday-Saturday and we LOVE to talk fabric - even if our new friend is a little quiet.
We'll have a look at your suggestions and choose a winner next week.
And if it's prizes you want, don't forget to enter our competition over at The Sewing Directory for your chance to win 3 metres of fabric of your choice!
Now - what SHALL we call you, missy?

Guess what arrived in the post today?

More Briar Rose!

Oh didn't we have a lovely surprise when we got an email saying it was coming?  Not expecting it until next month we'd resigned ourselves to having an even longer wait but no - we now have these little lovelies to add to the other Briar Rose we received recently.


We also have a delicious Briar Rose fabric stack made up of one imperial fat quarter of each of the 20 fabrics in the Briar Rose collection.  There are only a limited number of these fat quarter yard stacks in the UK - we were so happy to get hold of these.  Grab them while you can!
Need a little inspiration? You can download the pattern for this beautiful smock dress on Heather Ross' website here.
Have a looksee at Plain Stitch Deb's beautifully crazy Briar Rose Hex quilt here.
Rae Hoeskstra designed this bright and simple quilt for Windham using Briar Rose.    Click here to visit the Windham site and download the pattern.
