Hello everyone….


We’re very excited that Karen’s latest fabric line 

>>> County Clare <<<

is expected within the next 2 weeks


Karen’s new 20-piece collection includes a 43″ x 43″ panel 

  featuring 9 beautiful bird and flower applique motifs

typical of broderie perse, all mirror imaged to create movement.

The wide stripe and other companion prints combine to create a 

collection of printed motifs perfect for quilters to enhance 

their own Broderie Perse projects

Pre-Ordering is now available through our online web-shop
