This incredible collection features inspiring Christmas and winter-themed projects as well as a table runner for Hanukkah. Spread holiday cheer with 22 fabulous projects, including tree skirts, table runners, mantel quilts, ornaments, pillows, quilts, and more.

I especially love the advent calendar on the cover. Isn’t it sweet? I can imagine my children looking inside of each envelope daily, searching for sweeties waiting for the big day.

This Dotty for Christmas Tree Skirt is perfect for any home. Use traditional fabrics or contemporary fabrics to make it unique and suited to your home.

It’s Cold Outside is a super sweet quilt project. I especially love the winter mittens – so bright and happy. This quilt will certainly brighten up a gloomy old winters day.

Warm colours, simple piecing and chunky applique projects is what Jeanne and Shelley are known for.

This book features excellent instructions to assist in the creation of all the projects.

The ideas in Here Comes Winter are just lovely and if you enjoy creating warm, country style projects, this book will be the perfect addition to your sewing book library.

Here Comes Winter is available in the Martingale Shop.
