Standedge Craft Fair, 16th-17th February

How exciting – our first Craft Fair!  We’ll have our stall on the second floor of the Standedge Visitor’s Centre.  It’s the start of half-term, there’s a brilliant adventure playground outside and a little cafe, so why not take a Spring walk and have a look at our lovely collection of fabrics, bundles and haberdashery?  We’d love to see you!

It’s cold outside….

It is snowy, and blowing a gale, and hailing, and just about every other type of weather you can imagine out there. But I’m tucked up lovely and warm inside getting the new stock ready to go down to the Slaithwaite Emporium tomorrow.

I got a bit carried away and appear to be surrounded by doll kit bags, have a go, a great project for these chilly evenings….


Also we have some lovely handmade pincushions and cushion kits


Do pop down soon, we’d love to see you

Dress-up Days is finally here!

Oh my goodness we have been waiting a while to share this range with you.  But it’s finally here and it’s GORGEOUS!


headerDress-up Days is our first range from Riley Blake, featuring curly-haired little girls playing on their bicycles and splashing in puddles.  We’re carrying it in both Grape (purple to you and me) and Blue, and there are 5 co-ordinating fabrics for each colourway.  As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a simple strip-quilt to show off how simply sweet it is, but then I couldn’t stop, so I made cushions as well, and best of all, since I just happen to know a young lady with the most beautiful brown curly hair…


This is my friend Lois.  We showed her the fabric and she said at once, “That’s me!” so it seemed only fair she should have a little Dress-Up days dress.  I don’t like to toot my own horn too much but apparently she hasn’t taken it off since.  It’s the first dress I’d ever made so I’m rather proud she likes it so much.

You can find fat quarter bundles, a variety of cushions and even the quilt itself in our shop.  Sadly the dress and its model are not for sale.  😉
