Christmas orders and posting dates

Monday, 7 November 2016

Please note that due to the announcement of the post office strikes we have had to bring forward the deadlines for last orders for delivery (UK) by Christmas. Orders received by 14 December should be processed and despatched in time but we can't guarantee arders received after that date. 

Thermofax Screens make great Christmas presents ......... but it is disappointing for everyone if they arrive too late!

  • Thursday 1 December - Asia, Eastern Europe, Central and South America
  • Monday 5 December - Australia, New Zealand and Greece
  • Monday 12 December - Western Europe and USA
  • Wednesday 14 December - UK

And if you have missed the dates or just need a perfect last minute gift, we will be processing orders for gift vouchers, right up until Christmas! They are sent by email ready for you to print.


Home again!

Monday, 15 August 2016

...... and we're home! Thank you for your patience while we were away at the FOQ. The backlog of orders has been processed and we are back to the usual timescale of 1-2 days for completing most orders.

It was good to see some of you at the show and really nice to spot some competition quilts that had been printed with our screens! There were some truly inspirational quilts at the show and I always come back from the festival full of enthusiasm.

As promised we are repeating our UK free post offer on online orders until 25 August when you use the code free16 at the checkout. 

You can always catch upon our news on this page of the website but if you prefer, you can have all the news delivered straight to your inbox by signing up to our newsletter (at the bottom of the home page).


Order delays during Festival of Quilts

Friday, 22 July 2016

We are going to be at the Festival of Quilts which means that orders placed Wednesday 10 August - Saturday 13 August will take slightly longer than usual to process. We will do our utmost to catch up as quickly as we can but for a short period, processing will take 3-4 working days instead of the usual 1-2 days.

If you are going to the Festival, don't forget that there will some 'special offer screens' available from the Virtual Studio stand in Hall 9.

See our previous post for more FOQ related news!


Festival of Quilts 2016

Tuesday, 5 July 2016

It is almost time for the Festival of Quilts at the NEC - are you going to be there this year (11-14 August)?

If you are going to be at the Festival on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, do come along to the Virtual Studio to see what Leslie Morgan and her colleagues are up to - there is a rolling programme of demonstrations and you will be able to see colourful and inspirational fabrics being created right in front of your eyes. Claire will be demonstrating on Friday morning and Saturday afternoon so it is also a wonderful opportunity to ask any burning thermofax questions you may have! 

Thermofax Screens are not having a stand at the festival but there will be few 'special offer' screens available from the Virtual Studio stand. You can also place a web order to collect at the festival - just select the 'Collect from FOQ' delivery option and you won't be charged any postage. PLEASE NOTE: collection will be from the Virtual Studio stand in Hall 9 so is only available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

For a period after the show we will be running a special UK free post offer - more news about this and the offer code will be posted nearer the time so keep an eye on this News page or if you prefer, you can have all the news delivered straight to your inbox by signing up to our newsletter (at the bottom of the home page).


A haven for the bees

Saturday, 4 June 2016

When Thermofax Screens relocated at the end of last summer, the bees moved too! On the farm they used to live beside a very large pond and at this time of year, their main source of nectar was the golden yellow Rape in the fields that surrounded the hives. The honey they produced was very pale, with a delicate taste and set very quickly.

Now the bees have settled into their new home beside a smaller pond and there is a much wider range of plants for them to choose from (and no Rape for miles around) so we are curious to know what this year's honey will be like.

The gallery image has been printed on watercolour paper using two of our Ready-made screens - Beeswax 1 medium and Vintage Bee 1 mini and two inks - Black and Fool's gold (we mixed some of the black and gold together roughly to get the mottled effect on the beeswax print).

Monday, 30 May 2016
