Wow, well we hope today is as beautiful with you as it is here! The sun is shining, tomorrow is Saturday, AND we’re having another pop-up shop at the Marsden mechanics from 10am ’till 2pm. We’ll have two new ranges to show you and a few older ones on sale – hope to see you there!

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!
Well, it’s been quiet around here lately, but we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
At Material Goods we have great plans for 2013, but first of all, we’re hoping to put our efforts towards a new website and shop that will make it even easier for our customers to buy beautiful fabrics. (The bad news is that this may slightly delay the online availability of our new ranges, but be reassured that it will only be temporary). Speaking of which, eagle-eyed readers may wonder about the fabrics used in the letters above – they are ALL part of our wonderful new Spring ranges! Lots of fresh and vibrant greens, teals and mustards with plenty of pinks and purples in there too for those wanting a more retro twist, and all very exciting!
January can be a bit of a slump for all of us, so to ease your way back into the creative mood, we’ll be posting a very simple cushion tutorial next week, which you can make using any one of our lovely charm packs for the front, and a fat quarter for the back.
And finally, thank you so much to all our customers for your support in 2012. Onwards to 2013!
So all the running around, all the cutting, putting together and developing stock lists is done. All the things that you would never have dreamed you needed to do until you needed to do it. All done!
We are in!
And tomorrow is the first day of the Slaithwaite Emporium open with our stock, so here’s a couple of pictures to whet your appetite, so see you there soon.
As keen readers of this blog might know, we are already up and running at our online shop, but very, very soon we will also have a REAL shop!
…Or at least, a wee corner of one.
After an incredible amount of hard work from some very lovely and creative people, The Slaithwaite Emporium is finally opening its doors this Saturday 3rd November. Our stock will be going into the shop the following week, so from that point onwards you’ll be able to come and stroke some of our real, actual fabrics! We won’t always be available on the premises but both of us will be popping in regularly and more than happy to chat with any of you. Goodness knows, both Lucy and I can both talk about fabric for an awfully long time.
Of course, it is possible that some of the fireworks being let off in the next week or so will have something to do with Guy Fawkes, but we’d like to think most of them are celebrating with us. Hee hee!
