Hello and welcome to Gum Valley Patchwork.
Well here we are almost at the end of 2020. To say it has been a challenging year would be an understatement, but it is looking like we are heading towards a much brighter 2021. While international travel will be off the calendar for quite a while, it does look promising for interstate travel, which means that I will be able to hit the road again in 2021 and attend the Craft Shows scheduled for April and May (see events tab above)......I can't wait!
It's not long before I close for my Christmas break, but there is still time to grab some stitching supplies to get you through the silly season, or to purchase a gift voucher for that special someone.
I was excited to get in the new 'Animal Crackers' fabric last week. I have also received part of my full order of the 'Bee Grateful' fabric by Deb Strain for Moda, with the final 7 fabrics and pre-cuts now due in January. January will also see the delayed delivery of the new 'Blue Goose' collection by Meags & Me. For those who have signed up for the Duck Duck Goose Block of the Month, this will now be starting in January.
The first six months of 2021 is going to be full on fabric with these fabulous fabric collections due to arrive. 'Simply Neutral 2' by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Studios (now January); 'Woodland' by Tilda (January); 'On the Go' by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda (Great for boys! January); 'Scrap Happy' by Janet Nesbitt for Henry Glass Fabrics (February); 'Roselyn' by Minick & Simpson for Moda (February); 'Backyard Happenings' by Gail Pan Designs for Henry Glass Fabrics (February/March); 'Goose Creek Gardens' by Poppie Cotton (March); 'Illustrations' by Alli K Designs for Moda (March); 'Dance in Paris' by Zen Chic for Moda (April); 'Kaisley Rose' by Poppie Cotton (April); 'Gardenlife' by Tilda (May) and 'All for Christmas' by Anni Downs (May/June).
Please remember that if you are after something in particular and can't find it, please contact me and I will try to help you out. And if I don't stock it I might know someone who does.
Finally, I would to like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, safe New Year and happy holiday times. Thank you all for your wonderful support, not only over the last 12 months (and during the Covid lockdowns), but over the past 14 years. I'm looking forward to a great 2021 full of events, shows, classes, fabric and fun, and I hope that you will be able to join me along the way.
Take care and stay safe everyone
