We took a day out last week to visit the Stitches Trade Show at Birmingham's NEC to source some new fabrics and see what else is going on in the craft world.
I managed to find some beautiful new fabrics for Zigzag, and chanced upon a stand decorated with some familiar bunting:
The Historical Sampler Company had requested some bunting that would match their delightful samplers in their soft wood frames, and ended up with some of our pretty 'Sweet Dots' bunting, together with lengths of fabric which they used as a backdrop to the pictures. Doesn't it look good?
It was a serendipitous meeting as neither the owners nor I knew the other would be there, and I must say they clearly had the most attractive stand. Do take a peek at their website to see their traditional sampler designs if you fancy a timeless embroidery project.
