Friday’s fun at Simply Needlecraft

You all know that I love Friday’s. I love everyday but Fridays are my favourite.

So it started this morning when before opening I’m normally wrapped up in a quilt because I feel the cold way to easily

I love this quilt, I scrappy tumbler design.

Whilst I’m doing this Dad his fretting about the Yarn. Its dads favourite in the haberdashery and is a keen knitter but he also sews aswell. If you have been in the haberdashery you will see cushions that he made for the shop. I absolutely love them.

Every friday morning our very talented knitting and crochet teacher Sue comes in to discuss new projects and to check out the new yarns and patterns. I warn you she’s completely loopy but we love her and she’s a fab teacher.

So we’re restocked, organised, cut and folded, priced. All there is to do is make a few orders. So now its time for a break.


Grabbing a quick snack…..but I had five minutes of reading the new stitch mag from the embroidery guild….really good.


So a great busy day, lovely customers and people filled the haberdashery. I love my job so much and all the people around me.


Thanks for reading.
