I am sorry but this is initially for Australian quilters but I can let you know where they are being stocked for online purchase from overseas. Wholesale enquiries can be made direct to Lloyd Curzon.
I have recently also received some more lovely "Show and Tell" from afar. Firstly this gorgeous quilt from Christine for her brand new grand-daughter……just gorgeous……(the pattern is from More William Morris in Applique)….
Pam from the US emailed me some years ago telling me about her charity work which she calls "comfort" work. I was so touched by her story that I sent her a selection of designs for her projects. You can see more of her story here at this Link. And more in her words:
"I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the amazing ways that you unknowing, have shaped and changed my life. I wrote to you two years ago, asking for permission to use your designs for my charity projects. Not only did you gladly do that, you sent me every beautiful pattern that you have ever made free of charge. :)
I am still working on my comfort projects(I do not like the word charity) and what a time I have had. We have been on tv and several newpapers with our charity projects! While I am right now teaching children, and they are close, but not quite ready for William Morris designs, but they have learned his wisdom, his love for all beautiful things and more importantly, the love of helping others, caring for others and we spend all of our free time making beautiful quilts for others!!
I have taught the William Morris class for the past 4 years at local quilt shops, and have given women the ability and confidence to make the whole" Friendship quilt" by hand, making each stitch a labor of love.
I actually gave a Friendship quilt(embroidered by hand) to each of my sons, and the label I wrote was as follows: "Every stitch on this quilt represents a time that you have brought me great joy"
Every day of my life involves William Morris in some aspect and my goal is still to send his message to all parts of the world through sewing".
Thanks so much for sending me these lovely images Pam……
What a great way to continue the enthusiasm for William Morris! So back to the packing here at home with 'business' organised. Hopefully this year I can find the time to create more new designs……and Beatrix Potter nibbles away at me too - so stay tuned! xx
