Sale still on

We still have 40% some of our wool.  This is only certain lines, not our whole stock but still a fantastic chance to get hold of some beautiful yarn.

We have also had a bit of a shake up in the yarn department with the wool organised in type rather than colour.  We stock silk, cashmere, alpaca and llama blend, cotton/yak blend and cotton yarns

Don’t they make a beautiful technicolour dream?

Pleasant Pheasant

When I was planning to do the Goldwork Pheasant from issue 93 of Inspirations magazine (this idea never even got off the ground!!!), I realised that there is this beautiful pheasant fabric in stick at £11.40/metre.  It would be great in an eye spy quilt or anything kind of farming themed work!



Little Monkey!

In the White Peak Embroidery shop we haves some beautiful fabrics including these with little monkeys.

Many of the fabrics including ‘Monkeys in the Forest’ are by Jane Makower and are priced at £15.60/metre

Down the rabbit hole


Isn’t this just fantastic????

Millie, works for us, entered this quilt into the Festival of quilts for the age group 12-16yrs and won 1st prize!  It is painted and then freehand quilted on the machine.

It is on display at Heirs and Graces so please come and have a closer look.


We are rearranging things a bit in the chapel at Heirs and Graces and so we have decided put some of our yarn on sale.DSC_0269

Not all of the yarn is on sale, but the wool which is on sale has a massive 40% off!!!

Hurry down to the chapel and see what you can get your hands on.

Now for something a little bit different…..

Hello friends.  Sorry we have been a bit quiet here at Heirs and Graces.  Sometimes things can get a bit hectic.

Anyway, I have been working on a couple of projects to show you over the next few weeks.  One project is a Rowandean embroidery of Oriental Poppies.  This kit comes with the background fabric already printed with some guidelines.  The threads are beautiful quality and the instructions are clear and easily understood with plenty of pictures for extra guidance.




The other project is the repair of an altar cloth from a local church.  Here are a few picture of its condition before I have started work.


Next week I will give an update on one of the projects (whichever I have done most work on!!)


RHS Chatsworth

We are so lucky here at Heirs and Graces to be just a couple of miles away from the amazing stately home Chatsworth, originally built by the famous Bess of Hardwick and home to the Cavendish family since 1549.

From the 7th to the 11th of June they are holding their first Royal Horticultural Society flower show and to celebrate this we have 50% off of all the fabrics when purchasing more than 2 metres,  in the ‘White Peak’ embroidery shop (fabrics in the chapel, felt and organza are not included in the sale).

Keep your eyes peeled for more flower related posts this week!


Luna Lapin

Isn’t this adorable?

We have received our delivery of the Luna Lapin book.  This book gives extensive instructions on how to make Luna the rabbit and a full wardrobe of clothes and accessories.  I can’t even begin to tell you how gorgeous this book is.  Luna has a little coat with tiny buttons and even patchwork scarf and tiny boots and satchel!

The book is priced £15.99, but it is such good value as it includes 20 garment and accessory patterns.  Sarah Peel the designer has such imagination.  I just had to include this photo of Luna working at her sewing machine!


The Hurrier I Go The Behinder I Get!

Does anyone find they have the same problem with their work? the faster you try and work, the more messy it becomes and then comes the unpicking……..

Well we have some beautiful Alice in Wonderland fabrics for you to try.  They really are divine.  I’m thinking of making my 7 year old daughter an Alice style dress out of one, what do you think?  If anyone has already purchased some fabric and started to sew with it we would love to hear from you an see a picture.

The fabrics start at £15.60 per metre

Look at what you can learn!


Since Heirs and Graces opened we have been providing a ‘Patchwork and Quilting Block a Month’ class.

Classes run from 10am-4pm on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and cost either £48 for the day or £240 for 6 classes with one class free.
