Hello Ladies and Happy New Year!!
A warm welcome (literally today - the temperature is about 40!) to the new year! We re-opened yesterday after having a 3 week break, which was just lovely. We have lots of new stock including a huge amount of embroidery patterns, from the quirky sewing companion to a gorgeous fairy bolster cushion. We have lots of different cross stitches, including some beginner packs for children. These will all be added to our website over the coming week or so.
We extend a very warm welcome to our new embroidery teacher Ana Mallah!
Ana is joining us on alternate Thursdays and weekly on a Friday. We have a beautiful sheep cushion sample, that can be easily adapted for a baby blanket and she has many published projects, including 2 projects in the new hard cover Inspirations book called A Passion for Needlework.
Also included in our new stock are bolts of wide backing fabric in cotton and a huge range of baby flannels - pink, blue, black & white and grey. Designs are giraffes, teddy's, lions and bunnies! They are all great and there are lots of co-ordinating prints to match.
We have a range of new bag patterns too! Nice big bags that have a frame so they don't collapse. I am making up a sample of one at the moment which is a little challenging, but fun .... stay tuned for a picture!
We are looking forward to classes resuming in a couple of weeks, and if you are passing by, drop in - we would love to hear what you've been making over the Christmas break!
Best Wishes, Therese
