Calico Kate is 18 – a celebration!

It was Calico Kate's birthday on 2nd October

To celebrate this I am giving away a "Quilters Quip" to every customer who visits or orders from Calico Kate throughout October and November. Each time you order, you have a chance to collect another Quip — there are eight in all.

At the very least the Quip will make you smile, and perhaps inspire you to create something original from the fabric.

Rules, there are no rules!

The prizes: A Janome Sewing Machine, Calico Kate Vouchers, threads and a workbox.

All you have to do: let the Quilters Quip inspire you to create something original from the fabric.

You can add whatever extra fabric you wish to the panel, use just one picture, or as many as you like so the finished item can be large or small.

Then email me a photograph, including your name, address and telephone number for a chance to win one of the prizes.

The competition is not being judged until December 31st… so plenty of time to think and sew!

I would like to thank all my customers past and present, without you there would be no "Calico Kate"!
