ONWARDS AND UPWARDS

Wow, I can’t believe it was only 6 weeks ago that I last wrote here. It feels like a lifetime ago. So much has changed since mid-May and I’ve loved watching our store slowly but surely come back to life. We are back to full day trading hours and scheduling classes again. We’ve even received the parcel of wool from the United States that we have been waiting on to finish the second half of the Afghan we’re making in the Crochet Subscription Club! We have reopened all our regular classes with the Knit & Crochet with Support Evening one starting up again on the 11th of August. It’s been lovely having the store filled with the buzz of sewing...

Seasons

Hi everyone, I’m heading home from a short break in New Zealand with my husband as you read this. It really is a beautiful country and I love coming back time and time again. I’m recharged and ready to tackle the year ahead. We have some big plans and much to do in The Stitching Room and we’re really excited to share these with you as they come into fruition over the coming months. Although I was away, I was so pleased to hear about the rain and did my own happy dance over here. While we all love “a sunburnt country” there is also something very nice about a green one too! I know my very small garden will...
