Dear <<First Name>>

As I start to write this week (Thursday), we are hearing of the expected storms and possible damage that may well have already hit your area by the time you read this newsletter. Hopefully the storms will pass without loss of life and not too much damage to nature and buildings. I've got my phone charged and my quilts and chocolate (essential food!) ready just in case!
This week we had some super cute flannel fabric from Echo Park Paper Co in, which would be great for a quilt at the moment... they feature moons, stars and stripes so are ideal for children's quilts but I know a few adults (definitely not grown ups!) that will love them too.
Although there are storms at the moment, we are all hoping for brighter days to come and what better way to start than with our new Tilda collection Cotton Beach to brighten dull days and get us thinking of summer. Cotton Beach is a coastal cotton fabric collection. Shells, coral reefs and sea anemones are some of the motifs that inspired the mixed style designs. Colours vary from purples to dark and light corals, sandy greys, light and green teals and blues, and yellows to represent sunshine - something we are all hoping for at the moment!
Talking of brighter days, we also had some of the Playtime collection delivered this week. There is a great alphabet panel, an alphabet all over design and a fantastic rainbow writing design all of which are sure to cheer up a dull day.
It's been a young at heart themed week for deliveries; we've been searching for some dinosaurs for a while and were really pleased to find these from the Roar collection from Anbo Textiles. We've got a mix of colours and I'm looking forward to seeing some great quilts with this collection.
We sadly took the decision yesterday to cancel today's class as a precaution against the weather; I was really looking forward to seeing some of the Carpenter's Wheels projects but safety comes first and the class has been rearranged for March.

Talking of classes, we have a talented pool of tutors and we try to offer something for everyone. If you're still at the start of your quilting journey our Beginners classes on Wednesday 2nd March or Tuesday 29th March are an ideal place to start and if you are ready to move on to the next step and add to your patchwork and quilting skill base by mastering chain piecing and strip piecing then take a look at our Patchwork Piecing and Techniques class on Tuesday 15th March. It's a packed day as you will also learn how to make half square triangles, quarter square triangles and pinwheels accurately and precisely to produce neat and sharp points and explore the different ways to use these techniques. As if that's not enough, Snowball blocks and flying geese are also versatile and useful blocks to have in your patchwork ‘tool bag’ and easier to make than you think.
Well, we survived the day and so long as the weather hasn't cut the power, I'm off home to have a weekend of sewing (yay, not a DIY weekend this weekend!) or maybe I'll just snuggle up with some of the new flannels... Whatever you are doing, stay safe and Happy Sewing,
