Workshops & Classes

Planning ahead to the shop opening!


What is the point of all this lovely fabric, if you don't know what to do with it?!

Well, let me introduce you to Kirstie from Teapots & Thimbles
Kirstie is a lovely teacher, of many fabric and yarn based workshops.
We are currently coming up with a programme of evening/weekend workshops to inspire you.

Watch this space for updates!

Pattern catalogues

Look what's arrived!!


Patterns can be ordered now!
Sent to us for collection or posted to your home in a few days!!
Sadly, the summer Vogue book out of stock, but the autumn/winter book will be here in September.

Tilda fabrics ordered

I love Tilda fabrics, they're just such delicate prints and gorgeous colours, so I've ordered a couple!

The Lease...

Well, I have been through the lease with the solicitor, as I didn't understand some/most of the terms!
There are a couple of amendments to be made, my name spelling one of them!
We are looking for an opening date of mid-September, got to fit in a summer hol first and time for more stock to arrive.
Things are definitely progressing, the toilet is no longer in the centre of the shop floor (I do peer in regularly/or send my spies!), flooring is in the shop (admittedly just in a pile!) and the estate agent has been to change his sign!!
