what's new British pussycat?

A big week for UK fabric shops. Lotsa good shizzle for you people this week.

Oh yes.

Where shall we start?

Simply Solids has a flash sale for this weekend ONLY  on all pre-cuts. 15% off all pre-cuts, including the new in stock ones (such as oh deer and sew stitchy).



Kate at M is For Make has a special coupon code for you until 8pm GMT on Monday 1st october - use ginger for 15% off all purchases.

I'd like all of this please.



Jo and Simon at Eclectic Maker have had some fun arrivals this week

Alchemy by Shell Rummel for Blend fabrics...




and Out to Sea by Sarah Jane...



Lots of good stuff there.

I urge you to start following Annie from the Village Haberdashery's blog The Daily Stitch if you're not already. It's a great blog, full of tutorials and interviews and all round good stuff.

If you are a fan of Jay Mccarroll you may have already spotted that Annie has midtown Center City in stock. Her first shipment has arrived, and the rest will be here shortly.
You are incredibly unlikely to find it in any other store in the UK, so if you like it and you want some get it now. It's not being distributed over here, and once it's gone that will probably be it. It's one of my favourites, I think it's amazing.



Finally for this week, we're heading over to see Alice at Backstitch. Alice has had a really busy week, putting together more gorgeous bundles. I love the names and I love the fabrics - she has a real knack for putting together some delicious combos.

Look at this one, called Arbor Martini. Yum.


And what about caipiroska (I can't even pronounce it, but it sounds delicious and looks like a frosty morning, doesn't it?)


I'm a sucker for greys, so Gotham gets me all excited.


This one is my favourite though. Red Snapper.


Want to win one?
Here's what you need to do....

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!

Go to the bundles page, and pick which of the colour collection bundles is your favourite (basically from Gotham to Paris is Burning). You could win it!

There are a couple of rules (please, please read the rules!);

1. UK/Europe entries ONLY

2. leave a comment telling me which of the bundles you like best (EXCLUDES plain solids bundles, the designer collections - such as flea market fancy - and the pink grapefruit fizz super bundle)
3. sign up to the Backstitch newsletter and leave a second comment saying you have for a second chance
4. follow the Backstitch blog and leave a third comment saying you have for a third chance

A winner will be picked next Sunday (October 7th) and announced on What's New British Pussycat.


Now, off you go and shop - because those coupons and flash sales are ending really soon!

Swedish Scrapper said...

Ooohhh! I love the sedate and calm ones, like Caiprikoska, and Arbor Martini, but the one I really love is the Bittersweet bundle of rich blues! Because it is blue, and I haven't used such deep blues for a while, and because it is named the same as one of my favorite songs-- Bittersweet, by Bighead Todd and the Monsters! :P
