New Workshops for the Summer!!!

Over the last few weeks we have been inundated with enquiries regarding workshops/classes for children.

So we have sat down and organised dates for Mother & Daughter (or Dad & Son) workshops. The following workshops are available:

Cushion and applique workshop

Beginners Bunting

Patchwork Tote bag

Everything is included in the price. You will go home with a complete item to show off. If you are interested in a couple of our workshops then we can offer a discount. Please pop me an email before booking to To book your place please visit

I’ve had a week off from my coursework this week which has freed up time for crafting.

I’m still in the process of finishing my latest quilt whilst taking one of our new Singer machines through its paces.


I then decided to have a break and try my hand at more textile art….I am hoping to set up a workshop very soon to show you the different techniques.

Next week …….A yarn order is due to arrive with a new yarn from Robin, new patterns and a complete restock of all other yarns.

We will have information regarding up and coming events at the Haberdashery and The Sewing Studio and hopefully I’ll get some coursework started (and finished, fingers crossed).

We’ve had another busy and bustling week both in the Haberdashery and the Sewing Studio.

Please remember if you are wanting to hire one of our machines please email to book and check availability prior to your visit to avoid disappointment.

Thanks for shopping with us and your support. Roll on next week 🙂
