Well, the decorating's just about done and the new shelving is in!
Obviously, our beautiful haberdashery cabinet was given careful, special treatment - Sean and Richard carried her up the street! No car boot for her! Stock starts moving tomorrow, with some new things!
We will be opening on Wednesday 3rd December, back a day, after a surprise visit from Holland by our eldest (it was worth it!)
See you soon xxx

Well, after chasing round the village to find a misdelivered parcel, containing a key element to the kit. They are finally assembled!!!
All you need (except thread & needle), to create a gorgeous 3 felt flower corsage.
Perfect Christmas (there, I've said it!) gift for a creative recipient, £9.50
Back by popular demand!! The gorgeous Fawn Day cotton prints, from Art Gallery Fabrics Emmy Grace range.
I love the silky feel, of their high thread count cottons. This unusual fishing design, comes in a cream and soft grey, highlighted by pink and red flowers.

Well, here it is, the new workshop programme!!
Samples are in the shop and we'll be posting more photos, to show what you'll be creating!
Apologies for mentioning the C word (a bit early for Christmas, but got to plan ahead!)
The Mini Patchwork Quilt 1, 2 & 3 workshops are a series, teaching all the elements of creating a patchwork quilt, but on a small scale. The 3 workshops cost £50 in total, including all materials.

Just popping these beauties on the shelves!! I'm actually cutting a few fat quarters from them first, to replenish our collection. It's a really handy amount, for the odd cushion, bag, appliqué, as well as for patchwork & quilting!

Well, you can make them in whatever size takes your fancy, but my workshop sample is square! Great for organising sewing bits, jewellery, keys etc etc!!
Workshop Programme will be finished this week - so I keep telling myself!!

Today's delivery is a combination of mixes. Linen/cotton, linen/viscose, viscose/silk, cotton/silk...! Along with some Spandex (my fave word at the mo!) mixes and Modal jerseys (apparently the cellulose used to make it, often comes from beech trees! Interesting fact of the day!)
