Harvest Christmas Market

We are excited to be a part of Harvest Textiles annual Christmas market on Sunday the 18th of December!
There is a great line up including some of our favorite local creatives such as Stampel, Sunday morning designs and Beci Orpin, plus many more.


There is something about dolls that I still like, found these on Pinterest and loved them.

Gift Idea

We have just cut long metres (two metres divided down the length of the fabric) of the beautiful voiles we have in stock in preparation for scarves, you can make one wider scarf or two narrow scarves from these lengths of two metres. They are just perfect for summer and so light and soft.

Sophie Digard at Scarlet Jones

Just arrived in Scarlet Jones new Sophie Digard scarves and necklaces. Just in time for Christmas.

Subway Walls

Many people who visit NY do not use the Subway but it is a fabulous way to get around this city. The mosaics and sculptures are also worth looking at. These were some of my favourites.

Market Finds

Came across this wool embroidery yesterday and it reminded me of what my Nana made. I love the bold colours on the black background. I will make it into a cushion for my couch.
Also found this cute cookoo clock. Total spent $11

New Fabrics and Cushions

These are a few of the many new fabrics that arrived while I was away. Also a photo of some of the cushions Effie has made for the shop. They are available for purchase for $75 or you can make them yourself for around $15 (no insert, we do stock great feather and foam inserts if required) Cushions make a great pressie and are quick and easy to make. The Tram roll squares are also available in Black and White or Red and White for $10 each.

Christmas Decorations at Scarlet Jones

Just a quick cross post to let all my Patchwork lovelies that Scarlet Jones has the beautiful Christmas deco's in the shop from USA, don't leave it too long as they go quickly. I only get one shipment.

Housten Quilts

As you know I spent the last couple of weeks away and a good part of it was spent at Quilt Market and Quilt Festival. I must say I am not a big fan of Art Quilts and this year they dominated the Exhibition. So most of the photo's I took were of Antique and vintage quilts on Vendors stalls.

New York High Line

Not to be missed. This is a peaceful place to spend a few hours. Instead of ripping down an old above ground railway they have turned it into a park that has wonderful views.
