Sometimes you get a customer in the shop who you want the world to know about. This nine year old, Kate Lyall, came into the shop in Dorking with her mother and wanted to make a quilt. Oh yes – I can hear you say it – her mother will probably be doing it. No such thing! Our ever helpful Margaret was in the shop to assist and helped Kate with her fabric selection and showed her how to get started. Every week for the next five weeks Kate came into the shop with her mother as the quilt progressed. When it got to quilting, Margaret suggested tying for ease but no – Kate wanted to quilt it properly and so she did.

Here is Kate with her finished quilt and one she should be very proud of. Well done Kate!
