Brrrr.. it’s Chilly out there ❄️

By | News

Two weeks back at work and it’s been lovely and warm in the shop with lots of activity going on. Our beginners sewing group has started, Quilt and Crochet groups have resumed and our new ‘Sewcial’ monthly sewing group, has begun. We had the first workshop of the year on Thursday with 6 people learning the delights of Free Machine Embroidery ! It sounds really cheesy but it is so nice to meet and connect with other creative people.
I’m busy planning lots of new workshops, and trying some new techniques to introduce to you such as sashiko and shabori.
We’ve had some new arrivals in the shop, a delivery of Liberty fabric, some beautiful Art Gallery Fabric and Tracy has brought us some more of her beautiful journals.
Check out our new website, all the workshops are there too and can be paid for securely online.
As I write this snow is coming down – it’s a cold January night, but this afternoon I noticed some snowdrops pushing up, and evenings are getting lighter. Keep warm everybody and have a great weekend.

Happy New Year 2019

By | News

I can’t quite believe another year has rolled around! I hope you all had a lovely relaxing Christmas and New Year celebrations. Despite Betty’s having been closed Julie and I (and a few helpful Elves) have been splashing on paint and giving the place a general freshen up.

I’ve also been planning workshops for you –  some old favourites and a few new ideas too, anything to keep the winter blues away. I’ve also been visiting a few textile companies and have decided to stock the Art Gallery Range of fabric, so keep an eye out for that. We’ve also just made another Liberty order, Liberty have put their prices up for the new year, but we can keep them down for our cherished customers  until the spring.

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon, the shop and tearoom open on Monday January 7th.

heres to a happy and safe 2019🥂
