Goodbye Cafe, Hello Pattern Bar...

We were very sad to lose our cafe at the end of last year. After much deliberation, our desperate need for space for more sewing patterns and fabric outweighed our attachment to the buzzy vibe of the cafe. We met many lovely folk through the cafe and would like to think that we sparked a sewing interest in a few who had just popped in for a coffee!

So, in it's place we now have a 'Pattern Bar'. A pattern filing system and a long, clear surface on which to lay out patterns, fabric etc for easy project planning. We've also been able to bring some of  our 1.5m rolls upstairs and increase our stock of Liberty prints - Yay! Take a look at the recent arrivals here and watch this space for another big delivery in Feb.

Here's a couple of pics of the new space - and of the lovely Julie Arkell who popped in to look at the pretty Tana Lawns. (If you're a Julie A fan, have a look at these lovely gathered top workshops she's put together for us this spring...!)
