Giggleswick Mill ~ cute name , Gorgeous fabric!

Di Ford-Hall's much anticipated second fabric collection with Andover Fabrics arrived at Threadbear on Tuesday afternoon.  We were so looking forward to seeing Di's beautiful designs and colours, and they are certainly every bit as stunning as we expected. The complete collection is on our website for you to look at ~ click here ~ with 26 different pieces in all.  The feature floral is an authentic reproduction of a 19thC Chintz.
#1 Giggleswick Mill $24.00m
It lends itself perfectly to borders, piecing, as well as broderie perse applique.  However you use it, this fabric is a jaw-dropper. The flowers are soft washed tones of pink, gold, teal and green, and vary according to the background colour - ircky brown, light teal, or faded french red. The beautiful border print, again in three colourways, can be used as it is, or fussy cut in so many different ways. And the 20 supporting prints are all fantastic additions to any quilt or your stash.  We've already started sending out orders for Giggleswick Mill and they are coming in thick and fast so if you think you'd like some for your next project, you can order through our website, or phone us at the shop.

We always love helping our customers choose fabrics for a new project.  So when Katrina from Orange NSW came in on Tuesday afternoon to find fabrics to make Letters from Belton Grange, we had a great time helping her find bits and pieces to blend with the Giggleswick Mill border she chose - straight out of the box!
Sam has been super busy at home this week helping Kurt in the shed, so when he did come into the shop for a visit, he headed straight for his favourite chair and somewhere to lay his weary head!  We hope you can find some time to do whatever you love best and enjoy some stitching.  Have a great weekend everyone!
