Here are a few of our issue highlights to look out for…
Your new issue comes with 2 free gifts!
We love to explore the stories of the quilters who came before us, so we jumped at the chance to join forces with The Quilter’s Guild to create a special mini magazine to celebrate their new Devon County fabrics. We reveal the real life stories and the history behind the range and get stuck in by bringing you an exclusive quilt to sew, inspired by the collection.
Your souvenir supplement isn’t the only gift we’ve created for you with our new issue – each copy comes with a 2-in-1 binding tool to help you bind your quilts neater, stronger and faster. We’ve even put together a free guide here on the blog for how to use it.
