Enormous congratulations to Eileen Swart who scooped up no less than 6 awards for her magnificent quilt “Frivolity” at the recent Harrogate Quilt Show. Her attention to detail and delicate hand quilting are simply incredible. We are delighted that the judges recognised what we have appreciated for years – Eileen is an incredible quilter and tutor and we are so lucky to have her teaching at High Street Quilting.

Making Space for Christmas

It’s that very special time of year when we begin to make plans.

We think of all the special people in our lives and we begin to make lists and stock up with goodies.
We are just the same at High Street Quilting.
We are busy rearranging the shop to bring you lots of Christmas fabrics and ideas. This year we’re focusing on storage ideas and we have lots of interesting gifts and gadgets that will help you to keep your sewing bits and bobs sorted.  We’ve found that we haven’t really got the space to show these properly,

And so we’re planning

a little SALE
Week beginning Tuesday 31st October

ALL TILDA fabrics – Half Price

25% off Christmas panels

I’m in the process of planning workshops for next year.
It’s pretty certain that there’ll be another beginners sampler course starting up in the new year (register your interest by all means).
If there’s anything else that you’d like to do, please drop me an email or pop in to chat.
If you’d like to join an existing group – again, let me know. I’ll pop your name on a waiting list if we don’t have spaces at the moment.

Lots of new fabrics have been arriving since my last newsletter.
Here’s a quick snapshot;

“In The Garden” 
by Jennifer Moore for Monoluna fabrics.Sumptuous prints in 100% Organic Cotton.
I’m planning to use these fabrics in a quilt design that leaves these prints in big pieces.They’re so pretty.

Japanese Woven fabrics

100% cotton

Subtle, calm shades.
Especially useful in small projects –
bags, purses,
wallhangings and table runners.




And this is just a small selection.
Why not give yourself a little time to come along and explore all that we have, in store.
You won’t be disappointed,
I’m sure.

love, Hilary
