Wow, what a busy time we've been having of late here at HQ. So much activity going on here I really genuinely need to keep looking at the date .... "It's Tuesday 11th so it must be the Sewcial", kinda thing! Yes it is the Sewcial tonight so if you're reading this and still haven't told us you're planning to come shout soon so we can save you a bit of cake.
We also have the very first daytime Sewcial here this Friday 14th 10.30-12.30. Can't wait to see what all you lovely ladies are bringing along.
Next week we've got two fantastic workshops lined up. On Tuesday we have the lovely Sam Molloy here showing us how to make beautiful pictures using free motion embroidery.
The class was an instant sell-out but we have two more coming up in January and February.
This workshop would make a lovely Christmas present for someone creative!
Then on Thursday 20th at 7.30pm Jacqui will be showing you how to add a splash of customised colour to your home with a bespoke lampshade.
We still have a couple of spaces left on this class plus our daytime class that's happening at 10.30am on Wednesday 26th November.
And finally, last year we ran a hugely popular series on our blog throughout the festive season called 'The Twelve Makes of Christmas'. This year we will be doing exactly the same - albeit we're getting started a little later than last year! We will bring you the best of last year's makes plus some new ones. This really is essential reading if you plan to make your own gifts or decorate your home with some good old handmade crafty loveliness. Check back later this week for the first of our makes, the criminally quick-to-whip-up (although we won't tell anyone!) infinity scarf....
... there you go, all your girlfriends and female relatives taken care of. Don't worry, one of our new makes for this year is an awesome version for the lads (bear with us, really it is cool and they'll LOVE it!)
We've also got some fantastic makes for the kids as well as beautiful ways to add some festive cheer at home.... and for those of you who are thinking it's waaaay too early to be talking Christmas, remember that fortune favours the prepared - and that the time WILL whip by like a flash - it always does, doesn't it? Hell, we're even choosing Christmas fabric for NEXT YEAR tomorrow. Well it's better than looking at it in January!
