I know many of you follow our updates on Facebook but I also know that a lot of our followers don’t like Facebook.
So this post is for everyone who’s not had updates this week 🙂 x
This week our new range of craft kits started to arrive. Its was the knitting that started to arrive this week with adorable rabbits and cute dogs/puppies.
We’ve also had the first of the handmade Christmas decorations arriving ready for Rainbows Hospice and lots more being made 🙂 If you feel that you could help us with this donation please feel free to contact me.
I visit this site and its blog at least once a week. Tutorials and free patterns to download for embroidery, quilting, sewing projects, paper crafting but also fantastic recipes. They also have an online store filled with sewing patterns, quilt templates and sewing kits. This lady really has it all because she lives in sunny Australia 🙂
Go check out the links page where you can see more of my favourites.
I’m sure you’ve heard of them and the fantastic work they do.
They offer services and support to children, young people and their families when a child or young person has a life-limiting condition and is expected to not live far into adulthood. They help children and their families who live in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, north…
Another week gone and another week closer to Christmas 🙂
Time is flying by and this week it’s been all about getting ready for the festive period. Mum has been helping to plan the window display, our reps have been out to show us their Christmas goodies and we also have another Fabric supplier on board . Things are moving at a fast pace but it’s really exciting.
Many of you know I’ve been practicing hand embroidery which you were all very kind and thanks to you all I’ve decided to take a taster course before I apply for the City & Guilds. I think I just needed a push in the right direction which you certainly gave me. I shall keep you informed on my progress…..fingers crossed.
Also this week my gorgeous hubby has been helping me out again. I decided to make the haberdashery more homely so he set about mounting some of my quilts on the walls…..I like it 🙂
Here’s my list of people who inspire me. These ladies are all lovely, talented and unique. Go and have a look at their pages and you’ll see exactly what I mean. My list isn’t finished yet but I’ve made a start.
We hope you have a fantastic weekend and we will catch up with you on Monday. xxxxx
Many of you know I love quilting and embroidery (quite old fashioned I know).
So the last few weeks I’ve decided to try an embroidery that I’ve not tried before……crewel. I’ve really fallen in love with it.
I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. I’ve decided to hang it in the haberdashery next week.
So then I decided, because I’m on a roll that I would try some textile art.
What do you think?
I really want to do a city & guilds in embroidery but I’ve always talked myself out of it.
Well it sure is autumn now isn’t it. But instead of frosty, cold and sunny mornings the rain clouds are hanging over us.
But if your like me, its perfect crafting weather.
Ok so our new patterns have started to arrive but not just any patterns.
Six Penny Memories.
I first met the ladies who created Six Penny Memories, Kim and Debbie at this years quilting festival in Birmingham. Their makes were absolutely fantastic and we were delighted when Kim asked us to stock their patterns. Known for being guest presenters on the crafting channels, there easy to follow patterns became very popular.

I’m a huge fan of craft books. Don’t get me wrong I use the internet often to find inspiration and there’s a big part of me that likes browsing through books picking my projects and then doing it at my own pace.
So this week I’ve decided to top the books up with some really fab books and I’ve picked a few to show you.
Crochet & Knitting
Felt and Fabric
These are a very welcome addition to the haberdashery. I hope you like them too.
Thanks for reading, don’t forget to recommend us to you friends and family. 🙂
