Its all cracking off here

Hi everyone…….another late blog 🙂

Its been all go here !

Lets have a run down with lasts weeks shenanigans –

The week started off with my Mother itching to get festive, which meant it was Christmas window dressing time.  She’s done a fantastic job ……..



On Wednesday we had a meeting with a new fabric supplier. I’m pleased to say we are now official stockists of Timeless Treasures and Dear Stella fabrics. However our first order isn’t arriving in England until January/February time…….Boohoo. BUT the fabrics we have ordered will blow you away I promise 🙂


Thursday evening, the Sewing Studio was alive with learning and laughter. Our Christmas Applique Cushion was full of creativity, everyone made gorgeous cushions to take home with them. This is without a doubt my favourite part of my job.

As we speak I’m working on next years workshops. I’ll let you know ASAP but it looks like its going to be a fab year in the studio.

So on to Saturday – the workshop open day was amazing. we had crochet & knitting,  patchwork and free motion, Christmas decorations and lots of tea and cake…….and I mean lots of cake.

Heres a few pics of things that were made…..

Thankyou for all your kind words on the window display, for your support whether it be online and in store and I’ll see you soon.
