  • Cosmo Cricket

    We recently received a new Moda fabric collection in the shop - 'Odds and Ends' - and it's quirkiness sparked a renewed interest in it's designers - Cosmo Cricket. We knew they were  big in the scrapbooking world as renowned paper designers, and we vaguely knew of Salt Air - a past fabric collection - but we're sorry to say we've not had direct contact with their products until now.

  • Aneela Hoey Embroidery Workshop

    We met Aneela in person for the first time on Saturday when she held an afternoon embroidery workshop in the shop - and what a very clever and lovely lady she is!

    We were very lucky to be able to give all attendees a copy of Aneela's brand new book, Little Stitches (first editions arrived by the skin of their teeth last week, now available in the shop) Aneela taught one of the projects from it - The Holiday Snow Globe and all went very well, much enjoyed by all!

    We are delighted that Aneela enjoyed the session herself immensely and allowed us to persuade her to come back in the new year. If you fancy an enchanted afternoon of calm stitching to help you get over the excitement of Christmas and New Year festivities, book yourself in here - (or maybe put it on your xmas list?!)

    Read more about the afternoon on Aneela's blog here....

  • Liberty Patchwork Cushion Class

    You may have seen our lovely liberty lawn bundles in the shop? A customer asked if I would make her a cushion from them and it  turned out so well we turned it into a class! Ideal if you want to learn the basics of patchwork and go home with something special. The liberty fabric, cushion and backing are all included, as well as refreshments (including wine - it is a friday night after all!)

    Book your place here, or call the shop on 020 7704 1060.
