Foundation Paper Piecing is addictive!!

Well, tonight's workshop has started me on a new direction! I love the precision involved & the ability to use up those boxes of scraps, I've accumulated!  I'm not a huge gadget collector, but the hype about the Add a a Quarter Ruler, all makes sense now.  It's so quick, to trim a perfect 1/4" seam & get that neat finish.  I think I feel a quilt coming on...!

Autumn deliveries!

We've had a couple of deliveries this week & they've been photographed & uploaded to the webshop already!!!
It's amazing the effect caffeine, can have on your work rate...!

Oooooooh, pretty new things!

Firstly, let me introduce you to Maddie Flannigan! Maddie came over from Philidelphia to teach a bra making workshop in London, which I was lucky enough to get a place on. She is a lingerie designer, with ranges in Urban Outfitters, photographer, blogger & one super fit lady (as you can see, as she models her own designs!).  Busy lady that she is, she has produced 2 lingerie patterns with Simplicity. Both of which are in our shop & the webshop!
I'll be using the bralette pattern, as a basis to teach a workshop on Saturday 22nd October!  There are a couple of spaces available, if you'd like to join us!!
