The Sewing Studio came alive again on Thursday night with our popular beginners sewing workshop. This time the end project was a enveloped cushion. So in 2 hours of getting creative, having a laugh, giggle, tea and biscuits the cushions were finished and ready to take home.
I’ve also had the chance to finish off a couple of UFP’s (unfinished projects) ….
But we’ve also celebrated our 2nd Birthday this week……. I just wanted to say thank you for everyone’s support over the last two years. Its been so overwhelming and I’ve met some many fantastic people. It’s the best job in the world x
Its been such a busy week this week and its been so much fun 🙂
Monday started off with a trip to Birmingham NEC for this years trade show. So me and Mum hopped on a train to see what was on offer and to see all the new products that were in the pipeline.
So what did the show have to offer….well it was great to see most of our suppliers there and see their goodies, we gained two new suppliers. We made lots of orders and the deliveries have started to arrive. So all in all a good days work.
Tuesday….The famous Pancake races in the middle of town and right outside the shop window so we had an excellent view.
Everyone seemed to have fun and everyone seemed very competitive. 🙂
The first delivery that appeared this week came from our new supplier Freedom Fabrics. Gorgeous fat quarter bundles, charm packs, jelly rolls and layer cakes.
Then arrived the new books

I’m a huge fan of craft books. Don’t get me wrong I use the internet often to find inspiration and there’s a big part of me that likes browsing through books picking my projects and then doing it at my own pace.
So this week I’ve decided to top the books up with some really fab books and I’ve picked a few to show you.
Crochet & Knitting
Felt and Fabric
These are a very welcome addition to the haberdashery. I hope you like them too.
Thanks for reading, don’t forget to recommend us to you friends and family. 🙂
