Following our wonderfully successful Emporia Craft & Vintage Market which took place last week, we are upping sticks and moving out to Pluckley for the weekend. We’re grabbing a whole load of our wonderful fabrics, plenty of buttons and some seriously useful quilting equipment and shipping ourselves off to the Village Hall where we will join a whole load of other crafty types for some patchwork fun.
Clair will be running an Emporia stall at the Pluckley Quilt and Craft show which takes place over both Saturday and Sunday in the village, giving people a little further out from Ashford the chance to see some of our beautiful fabrics close up. Alongside all the Michael Miller, Riley Blake, Makower and Copenhagen Print Factory gorgeousness we will have for sale at the show, Clair will also be selling our fantastic cutting mats and rotary cutters, which no patchwork maker should ever be without. Making life so much easier (and quicker) when it comes to cutting fabric, these babies are simply the best way to get hundreds of quilting pieces all the same size.
Buttons and beautiful embroidery cottons will also be available on our stall, and several lucky customers will be given 10% off vouchers to use in the shop, so if you can’t see what you want on the day of the show, you can head into Ashford on Monday and see our full range.
One of the fabric collections we know will get a special mention in Pluckley is the Downton Abbey range. Inspired by the iTV series which has just made a return to our screens (hurray for Granny Grantham and her one liners!) these fabrics come in a range of subtle blues and greens, with vintage style patterns. Perfect for adding a little Downton glamour to your wardrobe (Lady Sybil’s blouses?) or transforming your bedroom into a proper ladie’s boudoir (Lady Mary’s curtains?) these gorgeous gems will be on sale at the Pluckley Craft Show from the Emporia Fabric and Craft stand all weekend.
The Pluckley Quilt and Craft Show takes place from 10.30am – 5pm Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September 2014 at Pluckley Village Hall. Entrance is £4.00 which includes a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake.
And in other news … Those of you who have fallen in love with our Poppykin owls and the Natsy Batsy bear will be delighted to know that we have more of both in stock right now. Colourful, patchwork sleepy owls have been joined by a wide awake button-eyed owl, alongside some heavy-bottomed doorstop owls in stripes. Joining the owls on the Emporia shelves just in time for autumn are these beautiful brand new bears – available in bright pink with white flowers, and duck egg blue with pink roses. Perfect for brightening up any room, sofa or bed, these lovelies are in stock now and waiting to be taken to a caring home!
