I'm a Madeira Threads Ambassador!

I'm really pleased to be a brand ambassador for Madeira threads!

Madeira sewing threads and colourful fabric

You may remember if you've been following for a while that I wrote a blog post (here) about demonstrating on the Madeira stand at the NEC for the Fashion & Embroidery/Sewing for Pleasure show back in 2018. Well I'm now delighted to have joined their Ambassador Team and I hope you'll enjoy seeing what I get up to.

When in-person events are an option again I'd like to do another show but for now I hope you'll follow along with my sewing projects on my Instagram account.

Handmade fabric coasters in brightly coloured fabric

One of the most recent things I've been sewing using Madeira thread is a set of placemats and coasters for my dining table. I used the quilt as you go/flip and stitch method for the piecing. I hadn't tried this technique before but loved it and will definitely be doing more of that at some point. What a fantastic way to use up all of your fabric scraps!

For a bit of detail and to try out some of my threads I added decorative stitching to the coasters and I think the pops of colour look great, the neon green is currently my personal favourite!

If you're interested in making your own fabric coasters I did a step by step tutorial for Design Matters Art & Craft School which you can find for free here

It's a perfect project for scrap busting and they'd make a lovely gift for a friend if you're giving handmade presents this Christmas.

Thanks for reading - I'm off to cut out my next project, back soon!
