Newest Design in the Ocean Series by Tegan - Snapper. Such soft, beautiful colours, you could use this design on a cushion, feature it in a quilt or table runner or do what we have done and stretch it over a canvas and hang it on the wall.
See what we have made using the Amy Butler Honey Bun Poufs pattern and the Happi fabric range by Dena.
This is is my latest design using our lovely Rowan Cotton Glace Yarn and three different beautiful linen fabrics. It was such fun to make, and a great project to learn how to crochet. This is one of our classes - learn to crochet, to put an invisible zipper in, patchwork and quilting all on one small project.
Here is a new cot quilt Liz Saunders has designed. This would make such a great gift for a new baby - called "Adorable Creatures 2". Available as a kit or just a pattern.
Tegan has been busy designing a New Zealand Range. You could use these designs to make cushions, or incorporate them into a quilt or use them like we have to make a canvas wallhanging.
Another Quilt Kit available now.
Beautiful Bows Quilt in Blacks and Creams - very french looking.

These little creatures are so cute and so much fun to make. I want to make them all in all different colours. We stock the hand dyed wool fabric to make them with and we also do kits for them as well as the patterns.
