Six Penny Memories Guest Blog

Six Penny Memories are back with their guest blog, keeping us up to date on everything they've been up to!


A big thank you to all of you who are sewing along, we are thrilled with the response! We are now three patterns in for our Florries Sampler Quilt, with three more to go!

Do you remember on our last sewing lesson at the end of March, we concentrated on the two blocks on sampler 3, the Dresden Plate Block and the Pinwheel Block? 

We brought 100% waddings to Hochanda for the first time in March, and they proved exceptionally popular, so of course more bolts have been ordered!  Another item was the 200 thread count calico which is good enough to incorporate in your quilts. We love it for doll making too (Florrie and Betty were created with this calico, they have been in and out of suitcases, on planes and trains and still look good as new!) and it's also perfect for stitcheries.

Coming up in April we are bringing new fabrics and a great rotating cutting board in inches, we love it! We'll also be looking at the Bears Paw and Needle Turned Appliqué blocks on the 24th April, so make sure to tune in!

On the last weekend in April we are excited to be teaching at the new Knitting and Stitching show in Edinburgh, we have some machine and hand sewing sessions and are really looking forward to them and always try to have fun! We are also doing 4 sessions in the theatre the event so come up and introduce yourselves if you are visiting the show.

Join Six Penny Memories on Hochanda on 24th April for fantastic sewing kits for the home with essential equipment!
Watch Hochanda live online, on Freeview channel 39, Sky channel 663 or Freesat 817.
