Teen Sewers!

Our teen sewers look pretty happy with their Linden Sweatshirt (from Grainline Studio) makes! They've made theirs as cosy jersey tops & couldn't wait to try them on!
It's a really versatile pattern, with clear simple instructions & comes together easily. 

Someone's been busy!

One of our lovely customers has really got her sew on!!!
I can't decide which one I like best, cos our fabrics look so gorgeous!!
Actually, I think it's the shirt, as I know how silky smooth, that Art Gallery Fabrics cotton feels!

Bra strapping tested!

Well, the 12mm bra strapping works perfectly, on this variation of Simplicity 8228!  I've omitted the racer back and back lining, to give a sheer lace look with simple straps.  We keep this Simplicity Madalynne bralette 8228 & 8229 bra patterns in stock, along with most of the supplies (just waiting on those bra findings!). 
There are additional variations on the designer, Maddie's blog at:
To get you stated, we are running a Bralette Workshop on Saturday 22nd October 1.30-4.30pm & there are a couple of spaces left! 
Call 01590 642808 to book your place.  
It's so nice to personalise your lingerie & soooo much cheaper to make, than buy!
