  • Designer Xmas Ribbon

    The highlight of our week this week was definitely the arrival of our new printed ribbons! We commissioned our favourite local illustrator - the brilliant Alice Pattullo - to design us a range of xmas ribbons. And here they are - aren't they fab?!

    Printed on 23mm 100% cotton ribbon and EXCLUSIVE to Ray Stitch - you won't get a more stylish Christmas trim we're certain.....

  • Schoolhouse Tunic in Flannel

    One of our most popular patterns over the years has been the Schoolhouse Tunic from Sew Liberated.

    It's definitely a favourite with us and we've seen many different versions of it made up in a wide variety of fabrics. The pattern is also the basis of one of our dressmaking workshops and it works brilliantly as a simple, fail-safe project to get started with.

    For this autumn we've made it up in one of our woven Brannock and Pateck Flannels - 100% brushed cotton with a very subtle furry side which you can use inside or out.

  • Mama Said Sew - Sweetwater

    We are SO inspired by Mama Said Sew -  the latest collection from Sweetwater!

    We're loving this modern and fresh and fabulously coordinating collection - the colours, the delicacy of the prints and most of all Sweetwater's own beautiful quilts and projects (see below). We'll try hard not to copy but aren't they lovely?...mss2mss3mss6mss7mss8mss9
