Name a Lamb!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun.  We had great fun choosing a name.  Drum roll…..the winning name is Danna.  Congratulations to Sheila Musson who commented on our Facebook page and was the first person to suggest this name. Sheila, you have won a goodie pack of pre-cuts and patterns.


Some of you may know that Pam lives down in Cornwall and has an ever increasing flock of sheep – the Hebrideans being one of the breeds she has.  Lambing has started and we thought we should celebrate all the cute new arrivals by having a ‘name a lamb’ competition.  We have one lamb (pictured below) who needs a name – and it must begin with the letter ‘D’.  The winning name will receive a GREAT goodie bundle with a selection of pre-cuts and patterns with a value over £100!

The winner will receive a £50 gift voucher and the runners up will receive a £10 gift voucher.  If you’ve won, then please email us at so we can take your details and send you your voucher!


We are officially on a proper ‘family’ holiday – the first we’ve had in years! However…we did pack quite a few quilts as we needed to take pictures to go in our next pattern book and we thought they would look lovely photographed in the sun (a rare thing in the UK at the moment!). But what to name them?

So here is our competition…..NAME A QUILT. Pictured below is one of our quilts photographed. All you have to do is come up with a name. We will choose a winning name and the winner will win a £50 gift voucher available to use on our website, in our shop or at a show we attend. Leave a comment below or why not ‘like’ us on our Facebook page and leave a suggestion there too. The quilt uses a brand new Creative Grids Multi-Size ruler that makes flying geese a breeze (and much more!) and….if you have seen our recent facebook page then you’ll know that this quilt has already had a dip in the ocean!

Good luck and the winner will be chosen on the 15th February!
