Festive Gift Ideas Via By Lisa Watson

By lisawato / December 2, 2020 /

Hard to believe this time last year I was still busy enjoying traversing the country attending festive fairs…

GNCCF online

The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair online, took place a couple of weekends ago. However, you can still browse and shop via this link. With over 150 exhibitors to buy from, (including me!) it was/is a perfect opportunity to get all your Christmas shopping completed in one magical online marketplace. Not only will you be buying something special for your loved ones, but you’ll also be helping to support makers during the pandemic.

I’m also really looking forward to being back at Alty Mkt (with real people!) again this Sunday 6th December for my last festive fair this year, so if you are in the locality do come and say hi

Enjoy your week, keep warm, take care & onward x

Rufus the cat or Rosa the dog? Decision please?

By lisawato / October 5, 2020 / Comments Off on Rufus the cat or Rosa the dog? Decision please?

Whose the biggest star for modelling my gorgeous British made Harris Tweed and velvet patchwork quilts?

Don’t make me make a decision on this…

Sadly, neither Rufus or Rosa are included with my quilts…BUT my quilts& are an extra special gift for a loved one (or yourself) and without mentioning the C word specifically….the festivities are creeping up on us and before you know it…just saying…x

Chilly mornings & cooler nights. Wrap up warm!

By lisawato / September 21, 2020 /

Is your heating on now? Mine is! I’m notoriously nesh which goes right against my celtic roots, but might explain one of the reasons for my passion for authentic British textiles. If any excuse were needed to wrap up warm in a sumptuous Harris Tweed Quilt now the chilly mornings & cold nights are here, now is the time you can truly indulge in some delicious cosy cosseting at home.

I have three beautiful & bright Harris Tweed Quilts currently in stock and these are now being offered at the best price of £290. So treat yourself or a loved one while stocks allow.

Enjoy your week, keep warm & onward x

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

By lisawato / September 5, 2020 /

NEW Houndstooth Reversible Wool Blankets 100% British Made

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!

With cosy autumnal days cuddling up in a quilt or blanket in mind, I am super excited to be taking my quilts (cushions&more!) to Altrincham Market this Friday 25th and Saturday 26th September Saturday. I hope to see you there x

Thanks to @lisawatso for the most fabulous quilt ever. Isn’t it gorgeous!!! And in my favourite colour…Green!
@CMBoggianno – June 9

I bought Lisa’s ‘sunshine yellow velvet and subtle blues, browns and greys Harris Tweed, quilt. Just love the fabrics, colour combinations and the workmanship is superb.

Oh my, my, my! Lisa, what a beautiful thing you create! They are heavenly beautiful! Simply, I am glad I came across your work and brought them!!!

I am so pleased with my beautiful quilt. The colours are lovely and they tone in really well with our bedroom colours.

Lisa is very proud of her quilts and justifiably so. I have never seen any like them, photos do not do them justice.
