Our new quilt cards have arrived from Strath Print (who not only did a great print job, but provide great customer service too). There are six different designs, with a detail from the quilt on the front and the whole quilt or a larger portion of it on the back along with the quiltmaker’s name.

We’ll be selling them in packs of six (one of each design, plus six envelopes) for £5.50 a pack or £10 for two packs. You’ll be able to buy them will be at our 2010 Quilt Exhibition next week, or email skyequilters@gmail.com.
