Busy start to The New Year --

After a couple of days off at Christmas and then New Year
am back in the grove as they say with all things making -----
the shop was open between both holidays and had intended to move the workroom
to the front shop---
however the tables proved too big so a rethink was on the cards to make more space for the new fabrics which will be arriving soon.
Also getting the workshop calender sorted ,
which of course includes
Girls just Want to Have Fun
with Kath and Debz ---
meeting on the cards to confirm the projects ,
so look out soon for booking dates ---
exciting !!!!

the first workshop is 19th this month

Will still be at
Rustiques tomorrow

Keep Calm and Carry on Sewing
