  1. Autumn is closing in on us and we are getting prepared by stocking our fabric cellar with lovely new warmer fabric. The colder seasons are ideal for staying in with a cup of tea and your sewing machine by your side. Our latest arrivals are some lovely boucle fabrics:

    All boucles are £7.75 per meter and made of wool and mixed fibres.


     Why not do it like Coco Chanel and make yourself a boucle jacket, skirt or even suit?


    Both Butterick and Vogue have some fantastic patterns for Chanel-inspired cardigan jackets that will make your sewing a breeze.

  2. Alongside the Brother promotional offers we featured in our last blog post, Janome are also offering some fantastic summer discounts on some of their most popular machines! Perfect if you're thinking of investing in a new machine to tackle that pair of curtains you've been meaning to finish for months, or to whip up some party outfits for your children. Maybe you're even (shock horror) starting to plan your Christmas projects! Whatever it is, we're sure there'll be a machine suited to your needs.


    First up, the J3-18 mechanical machine is on offer at £129.00 (£10.00 off usual RRP). With 18 utility stitches and a four-step buttonhole, it's an ideal machine for lightweight repairs and craft projects.


    Next up, the JP760 is reduced by £50, making the price £349.00. It also comes with a Quilting Kit, including a wide table,
    walking foot, free-motion embroidery foot and quarter inch foot. The 3/4 size makes this a perfect machine for taking to
    classes, and its 60 stitches mean it has a good range for both utility and decorative sewing.


    The DXL603 also comes with a Quilting Kit and also has £50 off, making it an identical offer to the JP760 at £349.00. Also with 60 stitches, including 7 buttonhole options, the DXL603 features a larger display screen and arrow keys to select stitches. It's also a little bigger than the JP760, with a larger throat space.


    Finally, for any serious quilters interested in a long-arm machine, the Memory Craft 8200QC has a fantastic saving of
    £500! Now at £999, it really is a great offer for a machine with so many features, including an 11" arm, 9mm stitch width, over 200
    stitches including alphabets and a built-in Acufeed system for precise fabric handling.


    All the above offers run from the 18th - 31st August and are subject to stock availability. Pop in or call us for more information.
