The English Garden is now in stock at Elephant in my Handbag. It is a collection of floral designs created specifically for quilting. Some of the printed designs are redrawn artworks from Liberty's archive, their roots dating back to the early 1900s. The colour palette reflects the shades and tones of a classic English Rose garden, with pastel tones of delicate buds and the chalky sun bleached hues of a wildflower border.
ECT Travel have now launched their 2018 tour for Alsace: The European Patchwork Meeting. Fly from London Heathrow or contact them for alternative travel arrangements. Stay in historic, quaint Colmar where you have free time to explore the shops, sights and restaurants and enjoy two full days at the show with return coach transfers from your hotel. Contact Sofia for more information by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)1225 333 747.
