Craft Focus - June/July 2020 (Issue 79)

35 FABRICS LITTONDALE FABRICS Littondale Fabrics has launched a new range of Celtic inspired prints called ‘The Highlands’- featuring the iconic Highland Cow, Stag, Scottish thistle and Celtic ring using heather purple tones and burnt oranges. The fabrics were designed by the owners of Littondale − Andrea and Andrew Heaton − after several Scottish customers asked if they could produce a dedicated range. Made with 100 per cent premium cotton, it consists of a four-cushion panel together with five all over prints. It received a very good response when samples were shown at the CHSI in February and is available from craft and fabric retailers mid-June. +44 (0)1756 793 908 VLIESELINE Achieve a perfect looking, smooth, crisp and professional finish to your garment with Edge Tape T20.
