Hi Everyone,

I kicked off the week with a spring clean in the Sewing Studio… one point it looked like a bomb had gone off. Fabric everywhere !!!!! But I got there in the end and now it looks slightly more organised.

The Cutting Table
Chill out corner …in comfort with magazines AND the kettle
The sewing table where the magic happens …. huge table with lots of space 🙂
The new addition…..the bookcase packed full of projects, wool and threads


After I had finished, my next job was too unpack all of the new stock…..Bliss 🙂

Gorgeous additions to the Haberdashery.

So now its time to get creative….

Our Sue is first up with this fabulous blanket…..


Then the first workshop of the week…..The Knicker Party.

This workshop is great fun, such a laugh and you get to be creative and make your own knickers.

We all had an amazing time and I can’t wait to do it again in May.

The next evening the second workshop began but this time it was the turn of appliqué cushions.

The ladies had to design their own appliqué picture. They designed, cut, bonded the designs before making it into an envelope cushion.

The kids sewing bee is also going great. The younger groups are finishing the tapestry/needlepoint pictures  whilst the older group are getting to grips small projects, this time they made fabric headbands and beautiful bows



Its been another great week  and it looks like another busy week next week with the workshops and more deliveries.

Thanks for all of your support, have a fab weekend and I’ll see you again next week.
