Its been another great week here in the Haberdashery & Sewing Studio. So let’s crack on with this weeks gossip.
Monday…..well what can I say. We had a meeting with Stof Fabrics. The company rep turned up with hundreds and hundreds of samples of their range. Absolutely gorgeous designs and the quality of the cottons are outstanding.
I’m happy to say we are now officially Stof stockists and our first delivery is arriving mid May…..So excited.
Carrying on with the fabric theme. I actually managed to get time to play with some of our fabrics from Dear Stella.I warn you now this concept is cute, unique and extremely addictive.
Wee Garden – Dear Stella Fabrics.
So the idea is, you have both fabrics. One comes full of outfits, shoes, hats, glasses….everything you could think of. The second is printed with the garden scene filled with adorable animals that need dressing up. So you pick your outfits, cut them out and dress your animals. Whether it by hand stitch, machine appliqué, free motion or simply glue.
These fabrics are available on our website (our new look website). …..
Next topic of conversation is the beautiful on 100% cotton from Stylecraft and patterns.
We have this is six different colours…amazing quality.
The Sewing Studio has been busy again this week…..
The lampshade workshop was first up on Monday evening –
Followed by the new workshop – Thread painting on Thursday evening.

Its time for our ‘I made the’ Campaign.
This week I want to introduce you to a very talented lady ….Helen. I’ve known Helen from opening the Haberdashery (so 2 1/2yrs). In that time I’ve seen many of Helen’s creations. However like many of us life sometimes gets in the way and sewing is put on the back burner. But I’m chuffed to bits now…Helen has found her love for sewing again recently and now say I’m seeing her beautiful and stunning creations again :) Can’t wait to see what you do next Helen…..Get sewing :)
So that’s been our week in a nut shell. We are closed on Bank holiday Monday next week so I’ll see you on Tuesday.
I want to thank everyone that take time out to read our blog posts. And to everyone that follows us on FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram. Social media can be a mind field so seeing all of you is very reassuring…. Thank you.
Have a fab weekend.
