To make it as easy as possible for the removalists, there will be a Big Sale on this weekend 15/16 Sept.  30% off all fabrics and 20%-50% off other items in the store.  With all fabric marked down by a third, this is a terrific time to grab an early bargain on Christmas fabrics and summer sewing.

The Indigo Story at Hobbysew

In ancient times, most of the fabric of Japan was dyed a beautiful indigo blue to make clothes and soft furnishings. This fabric was often printed with designs of birds and animals or embroidered by a method known today as ‘sashiko’.

Coming soon, Hobbysew will be offering a selection of 6 beautiful Japanese panel designs, lovingly printed by hand using a traditional method by a specialist printing factory in Kyoto.

These designs, popular for quilts, wall hangings and soft furnishings, include owls, cats, storks, a dragon and fish and a warrior. Each panel measures 50cm (20 inches) wide, so 2 panels are available in one metre of fabric. The thick, 100% cotton has a soft hand for easy quilting so try contour quilting with pearl 8 thread for a truly stunning look! Sashiko kits are also available to complete the Indigo Story at Hobbysew.
