With spring on our doorsteps I have been doing a little bit of spring cleaning on my website. If you have been a regular visitor to my site, you will have noticed that over time I have simplified the way I have classified my fabrics.
In the early days I thought it was best to have quite a high level of structure, with fabric classified into specific genres, over time I have very much simplified this, I figure the less clicks and page loads you have to make, the more pleasant the experience. When new fabric arrives into the shop, it is entered as a group onto the website under it's range name. Newest fabrics are always listed at the top. As bolts dwindle and find their way to loving homes, and only a few bolts remain in the range, I then close down that range and the bolts are moved into a group called 'Ungrouped fabrics' where they can live in happy company until they depart. Some times I just buy one or two bolts from a range because I can't let them pass, so these are also entered into the ungrouped fabric section. I keep the ungrouped section in alphabetical order, so the bolts still stay connected even though they are in a general grouping. I appreciate how frustrating it is to load a new page only to find 2-3 bolts in that range. I hope that working with this system makes browsing me site enjoyable. So when you are searching around the fabric section of my site, please make your way to the very bottom to the ungrouped section, there are lots of treasures to be found.
While cleaning up my site, I discovered that I had not entered my Dutch Heritage fabric. I have great supplies of the beautiful cream Arabesque fabric, the one Di Ford has used in her stunning 'Pendle Hill' quilt, featured in Primarily Quilts 2.
So if you have been wanting to make this quilt but have been unable to find this Arabesque fabric, I can certainly help out.
And a little note.
The local Nullawarre Hall where I run my Monday appliqué group and also classes, suffered a flooding event way back in May. I am really disappointed with the insurance company who are handling this, we are still yet to have the floor reinstated and it remains out of use. As such, I have had to make the decision to again cancel the Saturday Sojourn planned for September 23rd. I am really hoping that it will be ready for the following planned date of November 11. I will keep you posted. Our Appliqué group is running this Monday 4th September from the Nirranda Community Facitility.
Happy stitching, Lenora.
