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

New wool!!!

Always on the look out for different things we have now got in stock these beautiful new yarns from Rowan and some fantastic books to go along.

Rowans Felted Tweed (£8.85) is a blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose and knits to a DK weight.  The yarn has a beautiful tweed effect perfect for fairisles, striping and other colour work and the rustic colour palette is immensely beautiful and works wonderfully with the patterns in Martin Storey’s book which we also have in stock at £9.99.

Rowans Softyak is priced £7.50 and is just divine. It would work wonderfully well with some of the patterns in the new Rowan magazine which is packed full of patterns and very good value at £12.50.

Permin have brought out these beautiful farmyard cushions.  They are 100% cotton and stitched on Aida.  The kit (without cushion inner) is £37.75.  This looks like a good project for a Christmas present to me.  It will sew up relatively quickly with it being on Aida.  I cant wait to get my hands on one.  The Friesian is the one for me though!
