You’ve got to dream big in life, what’s the point otherwise? We’ve had some curve balls this year, but through it all we’ve kept our eyes on the prize and though things haven’t necessarily happened the way we’d planned things are still happening. Today I’m really proud to announce that we’ve opened an online store; Shop GnomeAngel. We’ve opened the store because we believe in the creative industry and we want to support others who are making their creative dreams a reality. We won’t stock everything, we’re only stocking the items that we love and use. We wanted to be able to supply you with the products that we love and be confident that if you’re spending your hard earned money with us you’re getting the best possible products we can supply.
I’ve got so much more that I want to tell you about when it comes to opening the store but this isn’t the place because no one needs an email in their inbox that goes on forever. I’ll pop a link to the blog post about why we’re doing what we’re doing in Monday’s blog post. In the meantime, I’ve been up since 3am trying to get the store ready for opening and now it’s done I’m going to slink off for a quick nap. Wishing you a week filled with love, laughter and much fabric fondling!

(Don’t worry, you can use whatever method you like to make them if you want to sew-along with us and be eligible to win prizes!).

- Anna of Clever Woppet has written her first pattern and released it for sale on Etsy. You can find this super cute fabric bucket pattern on Etsy by clicking here.
- Margaret Eagles has written two books for quilters. The first one ” Made with love. The story of your quilt” replaces a card when giving a quilt as a gift. The maker personalities the book with fabric and photos of the making of the quilt. The second book is a children’s book “My Grandma makes patchwork quilts”. It tells the story of a bond between a Grandmother and her grandchild and their shared love of fabric and play. To find out more (and purchase) click here.
