As part of our preparations for this year’s Fat Quarterly Retreat, we thought it would be fun to let you know who are our sponsors of the retreat this year.  And they are:

Moda, who print so many amazing quilting fabric lines and cut them into so many beautiful pre-cuts that we are all addicted to.  Goodies from Moda will be in your goodie bags.

Oakshott shot cottons, the British based producer of the most beautiful and richly coloured as well as ethically produced shot cottons which have to be seen and touched to be believed.   Michael Oakshott and his shot cottons will be in attendance at retreat this year.
Fat Quarter Shop, the home of the most incredible range of FQ bundles as well as all pre-cuts, yardage, notions, quilting patterns and more.
Aurifil threads, producers of top quality cotton threads in all weights and colours as well as nylon and wool threads and heavier weight threads for embroidery and hand quilting.  Alex Veronelli will be at retreat this year along with his threads.
Rainbow Discs produce a wide range of craft ebooks (including quilting books of course!) which you can download and read on your laptop or tablet.  You can zoom right in to see the detail in the images and print pattern templates out as required.
Eternal Maker are a UK based fabric bricks and mortar and online shop selling an eclectic mix of modern, designer & japanese import fabrics, for crafting, quilting, home-decorating & dressmaking.  Eternal Maker will be at retreat at the Saturday night Quilt Market event.
F&W Media are a UK book and magazine publisher publishing many craft titles including Brioni Greenberg and Lu Summers’ upcoming modern quilting books.  F&W will be visiting the retreat on the Friday afternoon.
Fabrics Galore is another UK based bricks and mortar and online modern fabric shop, based in South London and selling an eclectic mix of fabrics including an extensive range of Liberty lawns.  Fabrics Galore will be at the retreat on the Saturday night Quilt Market event.
The Village Haberdashery is also a bricks and mortar and online UK fabric shop, this time based in North London.  Annie opened her bricks and mortar shop earlier this year after the success of her online shop.    Annie sells modern quilting cottons and knitting wools and many haberdashery items as the name of the shop suggests.  Annie will be at retreat this year on the Saturday night Quilt Market event.
NB: we are not confident that the wifi at Baden Powell House will support card readers so make sure to bring cash for that event!
