school holiday workshops

well folks, it may seem as though the kids have just gone back to school but we're already in preparation mode for the next instalment of school holidays!  To make your lives a little more crafty and a little less filled with phrases such as 'I'm BORED' and 'Where are we going today???', we have arranged a whole lotta workshops for kids!

new fabrics March 2011

check out these gorgeous new fabrics that have just arrived!

the funkiest retro fabric we've seen in ages! 
from a range called My Folklore, a sweet gypsy pattern which would look beautiful in girl's dress

this pattern is so soft and sweet - and it has toadstools too!

another fabric from the My Folklore range, this would look equally amazing as a smart shirt dress or a long skirt combined with flowing layers of black and red scarves accessories - eccentric old lady style!

simple softies project 1

wow, what a fun day!  Today was the third session of our 'simple softies' workshop and the girls couldn't wait to show off their first completed project - Pandy the panda.  After choosing their own colours and working really hard on their hand stitching techniques, the results speak for themselves.  I'm really proud of their hard work and can see a few are destined to be craftaholics!
