Got an idea!

I have just gained some inspiration for next year's National Quilt Championships entry. I am unable to enter this year due to family and business pressures which is a shame but it does give me a whole year to work on an entry for next year.

I was thinking about Cornwall the other day and how I haven't been there for a while. This led me to think about the wonderful rocks and cliffs in North Cornwall - the colours and textures have always appealed to me and I used to take photos and sketch them regularly when I was visiting.

So after a frantic search I found some lovely photographs, sketches and collages I made a few years ago. Et Voila! Inspiration.....so now starts the work!!!

Steams up!!!

I am spending the weekend firing on the narrow guage railway at Hollycome this week as it is now re-opened for the season.  It was very wet yesterday (Good Friday) so not many customers but the weather is looking a bit better today. If you're around and haven't got anything to do over this Easter weekend why not pop down and see us? Visit http://www.hollycombe.co.uk/ for details!!! We will be starting railway rides at 12pm and the fairground rides start at 1pm

Tyvek fabric available!

We now have Tyvek fabric available in the online store. It has the same properties when heated as our Tyvek paper sheets but is softer, more flexible and has a slight surface texture, making it ideal for stitching into either before or after distorting!
