Yes, I know, Christmas comes along earlier every year it seems. But we all need to get our things created in time for the man in the red suit turning up on 25th December don’t we.

So the Christmas fabrics have been in the shops for a while now which made us think about having a Christmas Spectacular over five days in September to help you with ideas for your Christmas Makes.   We spoke to the lovely people at Makower UK who have given us some beautiful Advent Calendar Panels to giveaway.

The Advent Panels and Stockings will certainly become family heirlooms in times to come.   Each one is complete with instructions, 100% cotton, and just need little gifts popping into each pocket and they are ready to use year after year.      We gave one to Sharron to play with, and her review coming up in Christmas Week will explain how much she enjoyed making it.

More about these and how you could win one will be appearing around the website starting 24th September for five days.    We will be giving away one advent panel per day for the five days, each one different, so keep coming back to enter in Competition Corner when it starts soon.

Over the Five Days of our Christmas Spectacular there are lots of exciting ideas coming along from our website Bloggerati, like this clever idea to hang your Christmas Cards form Carolyn, alternative ideas from Scandanavia from Nina or how to wrap your presents in fabric from Ruth explaining the Japanese Furoshiki method.   We are really going worldwide this year!

But who could resist these sweet little decorations from Sue

Start collecting your fabrics and watch out on the 24th for the start of our competitions.  The details of how make all the Bloggerati patterns or ideas will start appearing over the five days .. and as a little gift from us, to you, they are all free too!

Merry Christmas Making Everyone!
