On Sunday 13th January, the start of the year really begins with our first show, the Quilters Fair at the Farnham Maltings. This is a one day Quilting fabrics bonanza, with us taking lots and lots of quilting fabrics, a mountain of fleece and so many fat quarters. Although it has an incredibly early start, and is usually very chilly, Farnham is a team favourite; especially for Annabelle as she gets to see her best friend who lives in Farnham the night before. But also for Paul as he gets to see “the lovely fragrant Caroline” who is one of the organisers and is very smiley even at the crack of dawn. However if the team are being completely honest, the fact we get a Crispy Kreme after the show is really the reason it’s one of our favourites.
A LOCAL FAVOURITE WITH FANTASTIC FABRICS ON DISPLAY
The actual show is also a favourite with customers for many reasons including the crèche for children and partners with the Sunday papers which means the shoppers can really get on with the business of buying fabric. Farnham itself is also a very pretty little rural market town, with many other attractions aside from the Maltings and only 32 miles away from London. The list of other exhibitors is also quite vast considering it’s a small village in Surrey; these last year included both the Quilters and Younger Quilters Guilds and the Patchwork corner. This all makes it an ideal place for any quilter to start the year.
NEW FABRIC STARTER BUNDLES FOR JUST £3
Now we know you're wondering which fabrics we are taking and the answer is loads. This Farnham show is really all about quilting, so we are going to go into overdrive with the fat quarters, even putting together star bundles with four fat quarters in each for just £3. There will be nearly 5 boxes of fat quarters, with everything from the batiks, to spots and even some Christmas prints for people who want to get in there early. Other Farnham specials are some pre-cut half metres and our usual posh remnants which we are working on as I type. The posh remnants can include anything from our full range, so you might be able to pick up anything from corduroy all the way to some of our best viscose prints.
DISCOVER BARGAINS ON CLASSIC & NEW FABRIC DESIGNS
Farnham is also the continuation of our Sale, which started on Boxing Day so there are many bargains to be had, with some prices as low as £4 per metre. But alongside the sale fabrics, we will also be taking our usual selection of fabrics including a selection of soft furnishing, like the Cool Cats and some of our newer ones like Cup Of Tea?
In preparation for Farnham we have also taken delivery of a whole new range of patchwork fabrics which will include a brand new selection of batik fabric, which we'll be cutting straight into fat quarters as they seemed to be so popular during 2018. Get a taste of some designs that will be on offer at Farnham, discover new fabrics in 2019.
As it is a predominately quilting show, we will be bringing along our latest floor mat quilts including the Animal Alphabet one. However, we are very excited about the newest one made from a space panel and would be backed in a variety of fleeces, which will also be loaded into the van for January 13th.
Now back to the fat quarters, need to get all 6 boxes ready............
