The people at passionforpattern would never have made advertising copywriters, so we have decided to let the following words speak for themselves; discounted Christmas shopping at two Designers Guild stores, dreamy gifts, panettone, prosecco, passionforpattern hero Tricia Guild, a heaving great goodie bag worth £30, fabulous prizes, tickets at a very reasonable £15, proceeds to Oxfam, 30 November and 1 December. Nor are we economists either but we think that the whole thing sounds like a fantastic deal. And we’ll be there too, to discuss our unhealthy obsession with pattern and colour. See you there, we hope. For tickets visit the Designers Guild site.
