I apologise for the lack of blogging. Lots going on here so I have plenty to tell you and lots of pics.
Ok let’s start with my little stitchers. They have been busy bees creating festive decorations, Christmas gifts and learning new skills.
Lets start with the decorations
Then on to the gifts…..
My older group have been mastering the skill of free motion embroidery. They are part way through a Christmas gift project but I’ll show you what they have been up to…..
We’ve also had a birthday party here in the sewing studio. It’s was a tote bag themed party…..
They are so talented that I decided to hold an awards evening for them all but with a twist.
Most of them were aware they were coming…..but I had a secret that only me and their mums knew.
We had a guest, the lovely Jade Earley from this years The Great British Sewing Bee. Jade was live via link to all the children, she has signed all the certificates personally and if that wasn’t enough, jade had made them all gifts to say well done. We had an amazing evening of certificates, food and fireworks.
A huge thank you to Jade x
The adults were busy too last week when their challenge was to make a Christmas appliqué cushion. Four lovely ladies joined me in the sewing studio for tea, biscuits and lots of sewing…
It was time for the yarn bombing to start too….told you we’ve been busy. I would like to thank everyone who donated their time and skills on this project. The town looks fab…..
Mum’s also been busy decorating the window for me as our Sue just stood there looking like a turkey :)
We’ve had some lovely new fabrics in from Kaufman and Dashwoods….
In between all of that I have managed somehow to fit in some sewing…
Now I know many of you have heard….I’ve tried to tell as many as possible. We are moving in the year and sooner than I thought. We are moving to 66 High Street.
I am closing on Christmas Eve until the 4th January I hoped to be moved in that time. The plan was not to move until February and its difficult to do when I have classes and an open shop. Hopefully everything we be in place for the new year. I’ll keep you updated as we go. My contact details will still be the same.
Thanks for reading and following.
