NEW Corduroys and Denims

New corduroys and denims have arrived.  Lovely winter colours in corduroy, our favourites are the soft pin wale stretch cords, great for blouses and skirts.   Also to help with your winter wardrobe we have new satin backed polyester suedes.

Hint: Denim and Corduroy

Hint: {denim and corduroy} When working with denim and corduroy it makes constructing the garment much easier if the fabrics are washed and tumble dried first.

Both fabrics require nap pattern layout.

Multiple thicknesses are easier to penetrate if you:
*pound the seams with a hammer before stitching to break down the fibre
*use a jeans needle

Use orange, red, white, gold coloured thread for seam topstitching.  If you don’t have topstitching thread, use two strands of regular thread.

Puckered Seams?! Be gone!

Hint: {winding bobbins} If you wind the bobbin on a fast speed, the polyester thread stretches: and it won’t have an opportunity to relax until it is stitched into a seam.  When it relaxes, the seam will pucker.

Puckered seams cannot be pressed out of wash-and-wear fabrics.


New seasons fabrics are now in store!

We have a great range of quilts, perfect for any nursery.

Jungle Theme
Giraffe and Monkey went for a walk, who do you think they saw?

Winnie the Pooh
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
- A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
