We have been looking forward to the arrival of Tula Pink's latest range of fabric "Holiday Homies" once again its such a lovely range of fabrics.
I've added links to the free patterns using these fabrics from Freespirit Fabrics. Just a little different from our traditional Christmas fabrics.

Auriful Thread

 This week we had the delivery we have been waiting on - 12wt thread from Auriful 
12 weight thread is ideal for hand quilting, big stitch hand quilting and machine quilting. and creates a more defined and often primitive look. It's great for designs that use a longer stitch length if using a machine. When machine quilting with 12 wt thread, use 40 wt in the bobbin, increase your stitch length, lower your tension, use Topstitch size 90 needles and stitch slowly.

Sale
