Future B.O.M Clubs

Generally, we have NEW annual clubs start in September and January.  In addition, sign ups for our Quarterly club 'The Secret Squirrel Stitch Society' are released in July, October, January and April.  Finally, for a little seasonal fun every now and then, we may also add in a shorter '4 month' club to make a wall hanging size quilt. 

Secret Squirrel Stitch Society ~ Starting October 2020

WE'RE SORRY, OUR AUTUMN BOX IS FULLY SUBSCRIBED, BUT SIGN UPS FOR OUR WINTER BOX WILL OPEN MID OCTOBER!

Ssssshhh...don't tell anyone, but we have a new 'secret' Quarterly club!  Every 3 months, you will receive:

  • An exclusive kit, designed by Sarah, to make a seasonally inspired mini quilt... this might include EPP, applique, embroidery, machine piecing, hand quilting.... lots of happy stitches! 
  •  A second 'mini' kit, again designed by Sarah & exclusive to Club members... for example, a felt decoration or a little embroidery design....think small and pretty!
  • A 'little happy' extra..which will be a little something special, either chosen or designed by Sarah, just for you!

Places each quarter will be limited, and you will be able to either purchase an individual box or pre-order for the entire year.  Our intention is that the smallest of sneaky peeks may be shared on social media, but the contents of the quarterly parcels will be kept secret until released.  Rest assured, the projects will be in keeping with Sarah's unique style! *Both the main and smaller kit will be available exclusively to club members for 12 months.

Happy Stitches Journal Volume 2 NEW & EXCLUSIVE

Join us in 2021 to sew a beautiful hand quilted fabric journal, a keepsake book of happy stitches, that we're sure will become a much loved family treasure.   One of the most popular features of  Volume 1, which our Club Members have sewn throughout 2020, was to provide the opportunity to add their own personal little touches on some of the pages, such as a button or a piece of lace with a memory attached, or to add an embroidered word that holds a meaning ..... making their journals unique and special to them.  Volume 2 will continue with this tradition.

A sampler book of sorts, the journal includes a mix of Sarah's hand drawn embroidery designs, (which are pre-printed on to a beautifully soft, cotton linen mix fabric) alongside applique and English paper pieced pages, incorporating more of the gorgeous cotton/linen fabric with the prettiest Liberty of London Tana Lawn fabrics and a selection of carefully chosen blender fabrics.   Each month you’ll sew a new 'page' and in month 12 you will also make a beautiful hand quilted cover.

Sign ups will open towards the end of October and we hope that you will join us for a year of happy stitches!

Happy Stitches Journal Volume 1 ~ Back for a 2nd Year!

GOOD NEWS! If you missed out on Volume 1 in 2020, we're delighted to announce that we will be re-running our original club to make the Happy Stitches Journal Volume 1 in 2021.  Over 12 months, you will make a beautiful hand quilted fabric book, designed by Sarah.  In addition, there are plenty of opportunities, should you wish, to add your own personal little pretty extras to the pages to make a unique and special heirloom fabric journal. 

The fabric book includes 12 beautiful pages, each one sewn using a mix of techniques including hand embroidery (the designs are pre-printed on to a beautifully soft, cotton linen mix fabric), applique and English Paper Piecing.  The feature fabrics are all beautiful Liberty of London Tana Lawns.  In month 12 you will also make a hand quilted cover.

This unique project is available exclusively at Pretty Fabrics and Trims and sign ups will open towards the end of October.


Current and Past B.O.M Clubs

Here's a little recap of both our current 'fully subscribed' Clubs and those that have now finished........ thank you so much to all our members who have taken part, we very much appreciate it!

Sarah's Sampler is a new sampler quilt design, incorporating all of Sarah's favourite things.  Expect lots of pretty fabrics, hand applique, English paper piecing and hand quilting.  The blocks themselves remind Sarah of all the things that she loves and bring her joy...so think lots of pretty flowers, blossom and birds, tea and bunting......

 

Happy Hexie Quilt Club ~ Starting September 2020 (Sorry Fully Subscribed)

Following on from our inaugural 'sell out' Red, White and Blue Happy Hexie Quilt Block of the Month Club which started in September 2019, running through to August 2020.  Having received so many requests, we decided to re-run this popular club.  However for it's second run, we've decided to add in addition to the lovely shades of first time round, we're also going to introduce some earthy greens, mustard yellow and dusky mauve in to the mix, reminiscent of a  hexagon quilt, we made a few years back....
