The Eternal Maker Crafts

Dear Father Christmas...

So it's coming up to Christmas right? Granted, it's still a little early, but if you want to make sure that you get something you like, you've gotta make sure that you let your family and friends know in advance that they need to buy you some stuff from the eternal maker!
But how will they know what to buy you?

Well, it's simple, because we've come up with a cunning plan to make sure that on Christmas morning you are all waking up to lovely crafting goodies.

And this is all you need to do:
1. Either come in, email, or phone up and tell us what you really really want for christmas. Make sure to make it a good sized list!
2. We will keep your list on file (ready to send to Father Christmas, of course!)
3. You tell your loved ones that they can either come in, call, or email us, and we can then tell them what you want, guide them in the right choices, and make it as generally pain free as we can for them to buy you what you want.
4. You wake up on Christmas morning to lovely scrummy presents!!

How does that sound?

If you are interested, contact us for a wish list form, and either fill it in using our website, or better still, come in store and fill it in yourself!

Just call me Santa x

Alexandra Palace Knit & Stitch & more more more

Just back from the Alexandra Palace Knit & Stitch show - sorry, I don't have any photos as I forgot to take my camera. As usual the show was full to the brim of craftiness, not that we got much of a chance to look around, being busy from Thursday morning 'til sunday evening pack up! Some of our new fabrics came and went so fast that we hardly saw them ourselves! We do still have some left though, so they will be on our website before too long - we will try and get them all up next week - there's Kokka of course, some Alexander Henry, some beautiful organic cloud 9, some super cute Michael Miller, and of course while we were away we had more deliveries back home, so have more Robert Kaufman and the newest Moda range 'Bliss' in store, to get up on that dang web page too.

But really the reason for this quick post was that I just wanted to say a humungously huuuuuuuuge thank you to all of you who came to visit us and were so super nice about us, our stand, and our products, it always makes the hard work feel worthwhile.

Now, just in case you haven't seen it yourselves I wanted to point you in the direction of a fab eZine called Fat Quarterly. I have seen a few copies, and I'm not sure that there is anything quite like it out there at the moment for modern quilters - it's totally worth a look, I promise!
Also, the lovely team at Fat Quarterly have featured us on their blog, and if you go take a look, we are also giving them a couple of echino fat eighth stacks to give away - so make sure to leave a comment and you could be the lucky winner!!
