The Flurry range from Dashwood Studios has become a firm stock staple for many of you and what’s not to like? It’s a fun, contemporary supporting print in some gorgeous colours. We’ve been asked to colour match Dashwood Studios Flurry with Kona a few times now so we’ve linked the two collections on the website as “Related Products” but I thought I’d list them here for anyone to stumble upon.

We’re still in hats, gloves and scarves and hoping that Mr British Gas is true to his word and gets us warmed up again TODAY (cross your fingers, or send us a blanket?) but I must say that icicles aside I’ve been riding high on the news that we came away with a few gongs from the 2014 British Sewing Awards.
