Issue 14 – Essential Camping Kit

City life is great but the Summer heat is enough to make any of us want to pack up and head for the hills. So if you are planning on a Camping trip you will not want to miss out on Fiona Calvert’s Project in Issue 14 of Fat Quarterly out on 5 August.

Fiona’s Essential Camping Kit is made up of a pillowcase, storage basket, zippy pouch, eyemask, laundry bag and lavender sachet.

Issue 14 – Summer

We just didn’t know when we chose the theme of Summer for our next issue that it would prove to be such a scorcher in Europe this year. The last few summers have been a wash out – quite literally so I think we were all dreaming of the sun and had secretly hoped that by stitching summery projects we might actually get a good summer this year!

Issue 14 is due to be released on August 5th. Subscribers can just log into their account to access the new issue as it becomes available.

Until then stay tuned to see sneak peeks of projects in this issue.
