NEW blankets being woven Now!

By lisawato / March 31, 2021 /

I am really pleased to announce that I have NEW:

Hounds tooth
BIG Fair Isle
Tumbling Block

blankets being woven NOW!
My NEW blankets are now available to pre-order at the original price of £115 (incl P&P) here, but due to increased production costs this price will have to rise to £140 from May…

These quintessentially British Blanket designs are woven in Lancashire from Yorkshire wool. These soft felted blankets measure 200cm by 150cm so looks great on a double or king-size bed as well as being an ideal sofa throw to keep at hand to combat any chills.

Why not treat yourself or a loved one x

Hurrah for February January is now over! Still a bit chilly out there though…

By lisawato / February 1, 2021 /

Hope you have been taking care in any wintry conditions and keeping warm?

If an excuse were needed to treat yourself my British Made Wool blankets are the perfect gift for the other half – pal – pet – or yourself – on the 14th February, or on special calendar days,  even high days and holidays x

My BIG Fair Isle Blankets take traditional Fair Isle patterns and enlarges them for visual effect. These blankets are comfortably weighty and great to cosy up in, just like my quilts. And just like my quilts, my blankets fit a double bed comfortably at 225cm by 145cm.

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

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.
