BOTHY THREADS Vesna Skornšek’s interpretation of the classic tale Alice in Wonderland is stitched on 14hpi Aida. The kit is entitled: Through The Looking Glass (XVS1) and measures 27cm x 37cm. VIRIDIAN A new addition to Clover’s pin and clip family, Clover’s Wonder Pins present a new and revolutionary ‘pin concept’ to temporarily hold layers of fabric together. This innovative creation allows for quick and easy basting while the specially designed curved pin makes scooping and holding the fabric easy. Furthermore, the simplicity of this product means it can be opened and closed with one hand. There’s no need to stress over unwanted markings either. Although strong enough to pierce through multiple layers, the thinness of the Wonder Pins means it’ll leave the fabric without any holes. All quilters and sewers will marvel at how the benefits of both straight pins and safety pins have been integrated into this single pinning tool! With its simple mechanism of push down to pin and push down and over to unpin, these pins are a great accessory. +44 (0)1173 005 244
