We are officially in autumn now that September is here…Right?

By lisawato / September 1, 2021 /

Personally I love autumn

the leaves turning, the brisk mornings and warm sunny days at this time of year. Of course, this is an ideal version of the marvellously problematic British weather which like many Mancunians I can be ever so slightly obsessive about (the weather&Manchester!) However, quilts and blankets come into their own in autumn and as well as brightening up a room with a colour pop of colour on the back of the sofa, or as a eye catching runner at the end of a bed, now you can start using them too!

Quilts, cushions & more for your home!

With cosy autumnal days cuddling up in a quilt or blanket in mind, it’s exciting to be at GNCCF again at the atmospheric Victoria Baths in Manchester from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th October. AND I’m really looking forward to being back again at Altrincham Market on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October. I hope to see you at an makers fair soon x
