Well hello everyone,
It seems only five minutes since I was typing the last blog post….. :)
This weeks been rather quiet but only because since Tuesday I haven’t really be able to hear hardly anything so I’ve asked all my customers to shout at me ……rather embarrassing.
But the haberdashery & sewing studio has been busy and I have lots to show you.
First up ….. Its been manic in the Sewing Studio.
The Sewing Bee – it’s an absolute pleasure to spend time crafting with such a fab bunch of children.
My first group of the day spent the time on our machines completing different practice exercises including lines, corners, mazes, curves, stars and hearts then on the playing with the decorative stitches.
My second group who have already stitched the practise tests last week put their new skills to the test and made pin cushions.
My older girls have tackled zips this time…
In the week we’ve had more creative workshops including are beautiful bunting workshop….
And then an evening of hand embroidery…
Ladies learnt various stitches and used a great range of threads including stranded threads, crewel yarn, perles, vicose ribbon, boucle and linen thread.
I’ve also been using the Sewing Studio this week. It’s a great space to work, so bright and inspiring. Anyway my attempt at pj bottoms…
I’ve also spent some much-needed time on my coursework and the topic at the moment ……tonal shades.
So whats new this week. Well we’ve had a lovely delivery from our friends at Stylecraft. We’ve had glorious shades of dk, chunky and xl chunky as well as patterns for all ages.
So that’s it for this weeks catchup, we’ve another fun packed week in store again next week.
Thank you for all you support whether in store or online, we really appreciate it.
Have a fab weekend and I’ll see you all on Monday.
