New in Store - 7th February 2016

Once again a large amount of fabric has come into the shop this week including a new brand, Ink and Arrow. I have a few designs from the Talk to Me collection as well as a couple of lovely retro coloured blenders from the Pixie collection. I think these colours are very reminiscent of American diners from the 50's. Keeping with the retro theme a few bark cloth inspired designs have come in from Lecien, Japan. I can't wait to make a lampshade from the Yellow bird design :)
I also received a new shipment of Alexander Henry fabrics, the new ones will be added to the website next week but I have also restocked a couple of old favourites.

New in Store - 31st January 2016

When I was in Houston last year at the Quilt market I discovered a number of bag patterns that used mesh for the pockets. Since I wanted to stock some of these patterns I also have to stock the mesh :) There is a large, medium weight available in 4 colours and a lighter weight only available in Black and White. I hope to add in a few more colours in the medium weight in the next month or so. If you saw the Sew Sweetness Ansel Camera Bag sample I made, this is the mesh I used on the inside lid pocket.

If you are a fan of Echino fabrics you will love the 3 new cotton sateen designs that I have in store featuring her signature bird and fox motifs. 

If you haven't already signed up to our Sew Creative Club and you missed out on our first Saturday class, which filled in record time, you are in luck. Due to popular demand the Wednesday class has been changed to an additional Saturday class.

New in Store - 24th January 2016

I've almost caught up with the backlog of product listings I have to do, of course every time I think that I'm done more stock arrives, LOL. This week I have some very nice beach themed fabrics from Riley Blake Designs, Flamingos from Michael Miller and Timeless Treasures. I'm very excited to receive the new Doctor Who fabric range from Springs Creative, consisting of a fabric panel with two co-ordinating fabric. 

On the patterns side of things I now have Sew Sweetness patterns by Sara Lawson. I have been sewing up the Ansel Camera Bag this week, you can checkout my progress over on Instagram or Facebook. If you are a fan of Soft and Stable byAnnie you might want to have a look at our new fusible foam interfacing. This product is from Australian brand Matilda's Own but it is made in the same factory as the product from byAnnie. It is also similar to Pellon Foam Flex but is slightly thinner.

New in Store - 17th January 2016

Lets call this Cotton & Steel fabric week as the majority of items that were added to the store were from this group of talented ladies. I have new designs from my favourite Cotton & Steel designers Sarah Watts, Melody Miller and Kim Kight.

For anyone looking to learn new and interesting sewing techniques we have introduced an exciting new sewing class this year which we've christened Sew Creative Club. Each club meeting will feature a new project and you will leave each class with the skills and information needed to make many more at home. Sew Creative Club is a wonderful way to squeeze more sewing into your year, learn new skills, try your hand at making new projects and make some great gifts for others... or for yourself!

Club Members will receive an exclusive in-store discount throughout the year; and also be eligible for fun giveaways each class. Choose either the Wednesday morning or the Saturday afternoon club.

Join the Sew Creative Club now to secure your spot on the day you want – spaces are limited!

New in Store - 10th January 2016

Whew, I survived the first week back in the shop for the year :) I hope everyone else who had to go back to work this week had a relatively painless time of it.

I'm still busy listing new products on the website, this week I have new and restock of old bag and purse hardware including all three sizes of internal frame wires from Emmaline Bags.


If you haven't seen it yet the Retreat Bag is a free pattern from Emmaline Bags. It is a simple zippered pouch with a wide base and a wide structured opening. There is a casing in the top where you insert the internal wire frames (one on each side), which helps it stay open when unzipped, and turns the corners down when closed.

In Tula Pink news more stock of the Coloring Book has arrived just in time for after Christmas *sigh* and the Tula Pink scissors have completely sold out. 

In regards to fabric I have listed a handful of Quilting Treasure designs from Dan Morris, Ed Hardy and Studio 8.
