Happy days! Anna Maria Horner is coming to town

Anna Maria Horner

One of our biggest quilt crushes is here in the UK and we’re just a *bit* excited! Anna Maria Horner always inspires us to push our quilting to the next level, and she’ll be sharing her quilting tips and tricks on Sewing Quarter TV this week…

Tune in this Friday 11th August to see one the patchwork pro, designer and Queen of colour live on TV talking about her designs and revealing her new Floral Retrospective fabric collection! Anna Maria’s designs, including bold prints, quilts, clothing and fine art are much-loved by sewists everywhere. Her fabrics mix vintage and modern elements, alongside a playful use of colour to create a timeless, elegant style with a modern edge.

Anna’s Sewing Quarter debut will also be your chance to get hole of her latest fabric collection in the Sewing Quarter shop. Stay tuned for more news next week. We’re big fans of Anna’s beautiful fabrics – pictured above are a few of our favourite fabrics from her Mod Corsage fabric range for Free Spirit Fabrics, packed with rich shades, bold prints & boho vibes.

So don’t miss Anna’s Sewing Quarter debut on Friday 11th August at 8am and 10am – exclusively on Sewing Quarter, Freeview Channel 78. If you don’t have Freeview, never fear! Watch online at www.sewingquarter.com or catch up on the Sewing Quarter Youtube channel.


Anna’s not the only one of our quilt idols to be on Sewing Quarter TV next week. Kaffe Fassett will also be on air next Thursday 10th August. Check out his Facebook Event for details.

Plus, meet Anna in person at her class this weekend!

On top of her Sewing Quarter debut next week, Anna is teaching a series of exclusive classes at The Village Haberdashery this weekend (4-6 August). She’s teaching three different classes at the West Hampstead store in London. This will be the first time she’s ever taught in the UK, so (unsuprisingly) tickets have sold out fast but we hear on the grapevine there are still a few spaces left for Sunday’s class. Details below – live nearby and fancy an impulse quilty Sunday? Go on, treat yourself!
