New in Store - 22nd January 2017

Lots has been happening this week, all of the bag hardware and zippers that I have had on order arrived on Wednesday. I have been busy packaging up and listing new stock on the website. I also have a couple of new mail order clubs ready to go.

Bag Club 2017 - receive a bag kit every 2 months for a year (6 bags total).
Feature Fabric Club - receive two pieces of feature fabric every month.

I've often had requests for gunmetal black bag hardware but it is really hard to source. The good news is that Emmaline Bags now has a small range of gunmetal hardware. I have the 25mm (1") slide adjusters and d-rings in stock now. I'll be getting the hooks, rivets and metal bag labels in my next order. There are also a few new items available in gold as well.

Have you seen the Clover Convertible Backpack by Blue Calla Patterns? It is the January Pattern for the Bag of the Month PDF Pattern Club and it looks pretty awesome :) 
You can sign up for the pattern club here: Bag of the Month Club.
If you are in need of hardware for this pattern I have hardware kits available over on the website in Silver and Antique Brass.

New in Store - 15th January 2017

I have had a clean out of the sewing patterns in the shop and have decided to discontinue selling a number of them, mainly kids clothing and embroidery patterns. All of the sale items can be found in the On Sale section of the website. Brands include Cake Patterns, Moonshine Design, Tadah, Sublime Stitching, McKay Manor Musers and Hissyfitz Designs.

New fabric is starting to trickle in with a super cute puppy dog collection from Riley Blake Designs. I have also listed some Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery kits. I got these from Quilt Market last year on a whim and have been trying to decide what to do with them since. I have started stitching up the Verana design and it is a lot of fun :) All of the kits can now be found over on the website.

New in Store - 9th January 2017

Welcome to 2017 bunnies :) 
I've had a busy week catching up with website listings and organising classes for the year. Most of my suppliers are still shut but they should be opening again next week so I am expecting new fabric to start arriving again over the next few weeks. This week I received a shipment from the US full of new patterns and haby. I also have new zipper from byAnnie due but they seem to be spending some time with the Australian Customs people first :/

The main new pattern that has arrived this week is the Modern Clutch Purse by Pink Sand beach Designs. This is perhaps the fastest purse pattern I have ever sewn and the result looks very professional. You can dress this pattern up or down depending on the occasion and the frames are available in SilverAntique Gold and Gunmetal Black.

Sew Creative Club was so successful last year that we are doing it again in 2017. Each group meets 8 times over the year and each meeting will feature a new project. You will leave each class with the skills and information needed to make many more at home. There are 2 Saturday and 1 Monday classes to choose from.
Group 1 Saturday: 
Group 2 Monday:
Group 3 Saturday:

Our exciting new sewing club this year which will be dedicated to bag making. There will be 10 club meetings over the year and during this time you will make at least 5 bags (4 set patterns and 1 or more of your own choice). 
The 4 set patterns have been selected to increase your bag making skill set and build up the difficulty level so that when you choose your final project the sky’s the limit. These classes will run on Sundays and full details of the dates and times can be found over on the website:
(this class is now full but I am starting a waiting list so please send me an email if you would like to be added.)

I didn't do a New in Store email over the Christmas weekend so I thought I would add them in here.
