When I went to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC, Birmingham this year, I was able to meet up with an old "friend" - the lovely Kim from "The Fat Quarters". It's always nice to see her, she's always bright and friendly and always make time to stop for a chat. Here you can see some of the lovely Red Brolley patterns that she sells.....
.....her stall was filled with lots of samples of quilts and cushions and bags, and really did give an essence of her quilt shop, which is in Northumberland.....
.....I have a subscription for the Australian "Homespun" magazine through The Fat Quarters, and have often chatted to Kim on the phone, so when I actually met her for the first time a couple of years ago it was great to see her at last.....
.....it was really lovely to see you again this year Kim! Now - maybe I can persuade Mr F to take me on a trip to Northumberland to visit Kim's shop in person - wonder what he would say to that idea!!!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!

These are the UK shops that I use to purchase my quilting supplies - fabrics and threads etc.
