It is with a spring in my step and a big cheesy grin that I can say with delight that Katy Jones will be joining us at our next weekend open day on 6th December!
Let me explain why I’m so excited…. Katy has got quite a number of impressive achievements under her belt, first off she pens her fabulous blog I’m a Ginger Monkey, she’s co-written a couple of books and contributed to many more quilting titles, she’s has her own TV series Quilt Monkey for the Quilter’s Network, she’s Editor of Quilt Now Magazine and if that’s not enough of an impressive résumé she’s just designed her debut fabric collection “Priory Square” for Art Gallery Fabrics which is released later this month.
I’ve been admiring Art Gallery Fabrics for quite some time but Katy’s fantastic collection was the deciding factor in taking the plunge to become a stockist. The collection was inspired by Katy’s own childhood and nods to life in England. I absolutely love the colour story of warm pinks, navy and green and I can’t wait to see the metallic print in all it’s shimmery gorgeousness. You can read all about Katy’s new collection “Priory Square” in her own words here, you can just feel her excitement jumping off the page and you can take a peek and register your interest on our website already and we’ll ping you an email when it comes in to stock (We are getting the knits too but I’m afraid I forgot to tell Mr Plush so they are on the “to do” list!) )
So, squeeeee!!!! We’ll have the full collection here on the day which includes quilt cotton, voile and knits and Katy will be on hand to talk about the fabrics and answer any questions you might have. It’s also our Christmas open day so we’ll have mulled wine alongside our usual refreshments and you’ll be able to mingle, munch a mince pie and have a natter with Katy about life as a showbiz quilter, and you never know what special offers might be available 😉 If you’ve not been to one of our open events before then have a look at our open day page which as lots of info covering everything from parking to stuff you can do in the local area.
So I really hope you can make it and don’t forget we’re supporting the fantastic charity “Dressability“ who make and customise clothing for children and adults who are disabled or have reduced mobility to enable them to have more independence when dressing. Dig deep in your stash and bring along any notions or fabric you know you won’t use and we’ll take care of getting your donation over to them.
And here’s are a few gratuitous pictures of the warehouse depicting some fabric porn just in case you needed another reason to come. See you then!
