We know it’s a bit odd but you’ll thank us for it later, I promise! Christmas in July is all about getting organised for the festive season which, as you all know, is a busy time for crafters. We thought we’d give you a head start on Christmas crafting with some Christmas sewing patterns, fabric, books and lots of inspiration.
