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.
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
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!
Penny used some of our patchwork fabrics to make these colourful pot holders and bags for gifts.
Lyn selected fabrics with a variety of surface textures and used them to make these ‘fiddle books’ . The books are used to help dementia sufferers. It was part of a project at Concord Hospital.
Joyce made this shirt for her husband using one of our polycottons.
Total cost of the shirt including fabric, interfacing and buttons, was around $6:50.
