Gift ideas from Ruth Singer’s eclectic online shop

Do you have someone on your list who likes crime? What about concrete ? Maybe some silk ruffles to beautify a Zoom background? I’ve got quite a selection of unusual gifts in my online shop mainly under £50. A lot of my shop has been hibernating since I moved, so if you spot something that says ‘coming soon’ just drop me a line and I’ll see if I can find it for you! I’ll be posting until Monday 19th December so there’s plenty of time for UK shoppers.

There’s these wonderful concrete and cloth decorative bowls by me and Bethany Walker which start at £15 for a single bowl or can be bought in sets of 3 or more.
For fans of craft and crime, my Criminal Quilts book fits the bill. It’s just £16 for a signed copy
A good stocking filler for the creatives would be my Patchwork Patterns Colouring Book which is £8.50 including UK postage
My bargain boxes of older textile artworks to hang on the wall has some amazing pieces at fabulous prices.
A great virtual gift might be my Gentle Goal Setting course for January 2022. This workshop helps you reflect mindfully on the last year and plan goals that are meaningful, manageable and inspiring.
For those who would like an original piece of artwork, I have some of my print patchwork pieces available now too.
Several of these Pearly Pipes are still looking for the right homes at £50 each
And last but not least, my quilt blocks are a tiny £10 each.

Selvedge Fair

SV-WF-728x90

The fantastic Selvedge Winter Fair is coming up next week! I have visited the show a few times but this will be my first time exhibiting.  The fair is always amazing. Chelsea Old Town Hall is a stunning building and the main hall, side rooms and corridors are crammed with textile gorgeousness. There are designer-makers, antique textile dealers, sellers of exquisite haberdashery, hand-printed fabrics and so much more. It really is like the magazine brought to life. Wonderful stuff. It will be hard not to spend every penny I take!

My recommendations for this years show include Asa Parsons, John Gillow and Linda Bloomfield. There are loads of people I don’t know too, so I know it will be a treasure hunt – finding new and exciting things. I like the look of Anna Ray,  Avani and Parna.

I’ll be showing my smaller works, perfectly suited for the home. I’m hoping to have new trapunto quilting kits as well (fingers crossed!) and I will have little bits too like a new range of postcards and handmade greeting cards.
