Sewing machines, Yarns and a Celebration

Hi everyone,

What a week! We’ve been rushed off our feet this week and Sewing Machine sales are at an all time high. Our best seller is definitely the Singer Tradition 2263 which we have to hire in our Sewing Studio. If anyone would like to see this machine in action before buying then drop me a message and we can show you the ropes.


This week was also about the Yarn delivery and we’ve restocked and we’ve had new lines in too.


It’s just very time-consuming unpacking it all……But I got there in the end 🙂

So new in –

New shades in the Robin Paintbox DK 100g


New patterns have also arrived


But my favourite by far has got to be the brand new fleece yarn from Robin….Fleece Chunky 100g – This can be used with any chunky pattern and is super soft.


Its been a great week, but today has topped this week off very nicely.

After a long, hard slog I received the news today that I’ve passed my first module in my City & Guilds  Embroidery course. Many of you that have been in the shop have probably seen me pulling my hair out the last three months and looking a tad bit stressed but I passed and I’m so relieved.

I have a break for a couple of weeks before I start the 2nd module so I’m going to make the most of the time and finish off my quilt (that’s the plan anyway).

Thank you for all your support. I love the haberdashery so much but it wouldn’t be possible without you 🙂

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

Ami, Dave, Sylvia and Glyn. xx
