Free project highlight - Sunset on the Mountain Pillows from Zandra Rhodes

Brighten up any space with this vibrant pillow from Lace Mountain.



For this Lace Mountain collection I have delved into my vast Rhodes repertoire of wiggles, stitching, frills and flowers. Lace Mountain represents memories of Australia’s Ayers Rock (The “Lace Mountain”), and the spinifex grass that grows around it. The way the imagery is interpreted is influenced by my mother and my sewing background. - Zandra Rhodes

Free projects featuring Gregory's Garden!

A stroll through a gentleman’s wood retreat reveals a refined taste for cultivating the garden classics. The Gregory’s Garden collection offers more foliage than flowers, bold geometrics and an insect with “attitude”. Together, they make this season’s fabrics a splendid mixture for crafting creativity. Sow some sewing excitement with Gregory’s Garden. – Jane Sassaman
