Celebrations, projects AND new stock ……What a week.

Hi everyone,

Its been a manic week here and with the good weather Myrtle is officially out of hibernation and ready to greet our customers again 🙂


It was celebration time on Monday as I passed my City & Guilds Design and Stitch course, I’m so relieved and quite proud of myself. I was going to take a little break and have some time out but I’ve opted to take the City & Guilds Machine Embroidery course now which I’m starting next week. So here’s a few pics of some of my course work……

You can also follow us on Twitter now ….  

My Husband (David) has kindly offered to help with advertising and Social media so he’s looking after Twitter which is a huge help. So why not pop over and say Hi and make sure he’s doing a good job.

Next week then….Well the fabric still hasn’t turned up so hopefully it will arrive safely next week, I might be looking slightly stressed with my new coursework on the go BUT more importantly we are expanding, but I’m going to keep you in suspense and I’ll post more info next week 😉

Thanks for reading and thank you for all your support its so overwhelming

Have a fab weekend and I’ll see you next week.

Ami, David, Glyn and Sylvia.
