WHAT’S NEW IN THE SHOP?

After another successful sale, the shelves are being restocked, particularly with winter and stretch fabric, suitable for skirts, sloppy joes, jackets etc, ready for the coming colder days and nights.  Plus 100% cotton shirt fabric will be out and on the shelves in time for the patchwork sale – makes great quilt backing, and large donation of upholstery rolls is due in the next few weeks. There’s always something new and different in the shop.

Embroidery

Had some great embroidery donations recently:
Good range of new kits and patterns
Many new threads – including silks, rayons, perle and stranded
Lots of new embroidery linen in a good range of counts and colours

Customer makes

Raven

Raven and his partner are new customers who have quickly become regulars at the shop.
The pair source a number of materials  from the shop and turn their creative ideas into all manner of things. They even brought back these bead figures to show us.
Looking forward to seeing what he makes with the leather that he bought on his last visit!
