Staystitching featured in the Guardian on Saturday
It was a busy weekend at Staystitching, we were featured in the guardian magazine 'things I like' column. This resulted in a massive boost in website visitors over the weekend and lots of orders too. I spent most of the weekend cutting and packing and have just posted a huge stack of blue parcels.
I also attended a workshop on machine Applique at Pride & Joy, run by Daisy Cook. A talented young quilter and designer. I love freehand machine applique and can't wait to do more, the results look stunning, I used small scraps of Tula Pink for the letters and a little piece of Kokka - Echino in the wind for my Squirrel. I love the way it uses up the smallest scraps, I hate wasting any bits of fabric.. so I will now be appliqueing everywhere :)
