We spent last week having a ball at the New Forest Show - thanks to everyone who came down to say hello and got their hands on some lovely sewing goodies! It was lovely to see so many familiar faces and meet some new ones too!

Here's a little pic of our home for the week, our carefully designed stall featuring some wonky-at-first-attempt shelves!! 


Luckily a handy screwdriver helped us out with that problem and we were soon straightened out and ready to go on Tuesday!

We took down an array of our goodies and used some of our fabulous fabrics to make up into projects to really show them off - my favourites were by far the nautical lampshade and princess castle cushion.


The show saw the first outing of our complete range of DMC natura crochet yarn, which proved a big hit - we were selling it by the bag full at times! The gorgeous colours and fantastic soft feel of the yarn really won everyone over, as well as some of the cute patterns - the funky farmyard animals was a firm favourite for the week!


Now don't groan, but our other most popular product during the show was our... Christmas advent panels! Yes, Christmas starts in July in the crafting world, because life happens and it ends up taking months to actually get round to making even the simplest of christmas projects. The stocking advent panels were definitely a winner for their novelty appeal, but the new advent calendar panels were also a big hit, especially for those looking to make up items for Christmas craft fairs. We made up the Angel Advent Panel and fell in love with its gorgeous metallic touches and sweet smile!


A big thank you to everyone who came to say hello and has been in contact since - it was lovely to meet you and we hope to see you again soon! Don't forget that we're currently at the Christchurch market in Saxon Square on Mondays, weather permitting.
