Looking for the Hawthorne Threads Give Away? It’s here.

I just want to take this opportunity to welcome all the new readers that have found their way here in the last 24 hours. I’m enjoying reading your comments and I agree that it is hard to pick a favourite collection from Hawthorne Threads. I guess it really depends on what sort of project you’re looking for fabric for doesn’t it? My choices are below:

Quirky fabric

Riley Blake’s Retro Umbrellas in White

Formal Fabric

Michael Miller’s Delilah in Purple

Wistful collection

Bari Ackerman’s Art Journal

Fabric collection coming soon

Pat Bravo’s Paradise in the Sunset Colourway

Progress on the new project

I have been pushing on with my latest project which I started the other day. I’m at the point of basting the greaseproof paper pattern onto the fabrics. It’s a painstaking process but I enjoy it and it almost guarantees the correct placement of the pattern on the fabric. This is especially important when you have a certain section of the fabric that you want to appear in a particular section of the pattern. The hole you can see in the paper was cut to allow me to centre a heart motif in the fabric in the centre of the central medallion of the pattern.
