How’s everyone doing? I hope you are safe and well.
Its been a good week, lots going on and I’m struggling to keep track of days and apparently we’re only nine days in to the year.
So what’s been going on……
Well we’re still able to send orders out all over the Uk and we’re offering a click and collect service too…..https://Www.simplyneedlecraft.com
A huge thank you to everyone that has placed an order, we’re getting your orders out the same day if you order before 2pm.
Our VIP fabric group members are busy making their January projects……its not to late to get this months box if you want to join in.
I’ve also filmed the children’s stitch school project for January’s lesson. The lessons are due to posted out on the 15th of January, to get your child enrolled into my virtual school please visit https://www.simplysewingboxes.com/the-stitch-school/
And finally because I love learning new things I’ve signed up to a knitting course (yep I’m absolutely useless at knitting but OK at crochet)
So what’s is everyone doing to keep busy, what ongoing projects have you got on the go, what new skills are you learning?
Stay safe, well and warm
Here we are again in round two in of restrictions.
Dont panic though……. I’m determined to help where I can.
We’re still able to send out orders and run a click & collect service, head over to https://www.simplyneedlecraft.com
Workshops are on hold, however I’ve just launched Stitch School online. This is open to all children in the uk. They will receive a monthly package with a tutorial and additional video support.
Have a look at the details https://www.simplysewingboxes.com/the-stitch-school/
I’ve also set a 30 Day Craft Challenge up on Facebook and Instagram. Head over to join us…….It’s amazing to see what everyone’s up to. We’re on day Four already.
Im determined to keep busy and productive………so look what’s arrived ❤️
With all the uncertainty around at the moment I’m more determined than ever to keep going. This year has been a challenge and I’m super stubborn……..to keep me sane in insane times I’ve found this. Now it might seem a bit pointless however it works.
It’s more important now more than ever to look after our mindsets….. keep inspired, get creative and let’s smash the next 30 days.
I’m so used to patchwork and quilting, it’s my passion……….. however I’m all up for pushing myself out of my comfort zone (and it’s the perfect time of year to do it). I’ve took the step to have a go at dress making…… stand by for the updates, I’ve only just started cutting the patterns out ❤️
I’m also starting a new painting by numbers, perfect for the dark nights …… It’s so therapeutic
I love therapeutic projects so our Fabric Community have now got my Fabric Journal workshop in video form so they can create their very own memory books. These books cost hardly anything to make, all you need is scraps of fabric and a little bit of inspiration.

What projects have you got on the go?
This year is flying by and lets face what year its been. But now for the last couple of weeks we’ve been in my favourite part of the year…….Autumn.
Its all about cold crispy mornings, warm snuggly clothes, candles, books, the fire on, hot chocolate, walks with the turning leaves and pj’s. Bonfire night is my favourite night of the year but it looks like that’s cancelled (gutted).
However my craft room is near enough finished so now ill be able to craft at home and film more tutorials for our Fabric Community (if your not already a member head over to https://www.simplysewingboxes.com )
It still needs organising, a blind and a light but its getting there.
I’ve been getting festive and now my Christmas Quilt is finished. I’m filming the tutorial for this tomorrow for our Fabric Community Members.
I’ve finished a painting by numbers for my craft room
Now I’ve started EPP Hexagons
Now I’m on the hunt for other projects.
Does anyone else like a list of projects to work through……..or is it just me?
