It's Christmas Sale time!

We have TWO amazing offers on for you whilst we are closed for Christmas Holidays...first is a whole sale section of Christmas Crafting items ... you can  see the before & after prices whilst you are shopping (there are some serious bargains - we have new things coming and nowhere to put them!!) ...the second offer is ALL our remaining Christmas fabric is 40% off - you need to type the code: christmas2017 to get the fabric discount (a £3.75 fat quarter works out as £2.25!!)
You'll have to be quick - stocks are limited to what we have left and it's first come first served - both sales finish once we re-open on January 5th 2017
So, just to be really obvious - NOTHING gets posted until we are back on 5th Jan (and they will get posted out in the order we receive them - and we will work at warp speed to get everything to you asap)
Also - sale items don't count towards total spends to get your free craft kit :-)
 Happy Christmas - and Happy Sale Shopping too ;-)

2017 crafting

During the busy-ness of Christmas parcel sending I have started thinking about next year's crafting - all thoughts of snowmen and reindeer are disappearing and being replaced by bunnies, hearts & flowers...and I can see from some of the parcels I'm sending out that I am not alone - so with thoughts of 2017 already brewing the timing of our latest fabric delivery was perfect!
 As always, all our fabrics are available as Fabric (cut to order) or made into Fabric Felt
All these designs are in the what's new section here:

A barn shuffle

 On Tuesday A (really very) BIG box arrived .... containing a brand new ribbon rack :-)
Such a big piece of brand new furniture meant it was time to shuffle the barn around to fit it in!
It took John and I the best part of Saturday to do it but it was definitely worth all the hard work - doesn't it look FAB?

Swap Tree update

 There's still a month until the deadline - I think I can squish loads more on this tree, but if we run out of room we can make another one!!
Keep up to date with the swap progress (and details of who made these beautiful decorations) in our Swap Photo album on Facebook

Swap Tree

 I've had a swap re-think this year and made a Swap Tree to show off all the handmade loveliness as it gets posted to us :-)
 All the tree-making credit goes to John - I knew I wanted a tree-that-was-like-a-poster-I-can-hang-things-off...and I knew what it should look like, and then John was super smart and worked out how to make it perfectly :-)
 The background fabric is my favourite Cool Yule fabric...the tree is Apple felt, and the lengths of  mini-tree-garland work perfectly as an anchor to hang the decorations off
 The first swap decorations arrived with yesterday's post and look great on the Swap Tree :-)
Full swap details are here
and there's a photo album on our Facebook page which will have more details on the swap's progress and the decorations received

We no longer have our pop-up shop.
 We opened our shop space when the Custom's House opened it's doors (Easter 2015) and we stayed waaaay longer than we initially thought!  Yesterday we cleared everything out  (I say we, but mostly it was John's hard work)
We shall miss our little cave shop (the curved ceiling made us nickname it the cave) but after 18+ months we decided it was time to close the doors and move on - we've loved having a retail space,  but after we moved house last year (we used to live opposite The Customs House) we couldn't get there as often as we wanted to to keep it all clean & tidy and fully stocked up - and you know how we work - if we can't do it properly then we won't do it at all.
We want to say a BIG thank you to all our regular pop-up shop customers .  We only ever met a handful of you whilst we were there tidying/stocking up  - but those we did meet made it even more fun :-)

NEW fabrics NEW fabric felts (and unicorns!!)

 I LOVED the vintage-y colours of this brand new collection when I ordered fabrics in April...there's just something about Mustard and Charcoal that makes me smile :-)
 The co-ordinating patterns are gorgeous too...little triangles...
 ...and diamonds too
 The florals come in Large and Small scales
 I think the small flowers will be a big hit with our Fabric Felt fans!  These flowers are on a red background but it goes so well with our coral felt - scrummy!
 The second new collection is called Princess Dreams and is SO's bright and cheery and there are unicorns, rainbows & toadstools!!
 It's girly, but not too girly
 The Frog Prince's are CUTE
 it's ALL cute!
As always our fabric ranges are available as fat quarters,  half metres & meters AND as fabric felt too :-)
All these can be found in the what's new section
