Good Afternoon all…..

We had a great time meeting suppliers old and new, trying out new products and meeting other haberdasheries  from all over the country.

Tuesday was fun after my feet had stopped throbbing from the NEC. In our attempt at keeping up with the modern world ……..our video went live on youTube …..

I love it……what do you think?


Wednesday has to be the best day of this week. Finally after 3 months our delivery of Timeless Treasures and Dear Stella  fabrics arrived from America. After such a long time between ordering and delivery I had forgotten most of the designs that I had ordered. When I opened the box I wasn’t disappointed.

And as the haberdashery closed for the day the Sewing Studio opened. This time for our monthly instalment of Block of the Month.

This months block was the disappearing nine patch using bold contrasting colours. Everyone made a fantastic job of their quilting blocks.


Friday our new lampshades kits arrived which is great but we are running out of space very quickly…….. I need a bigger shop 🙂
