Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Thank you so much for all your support throughout 2013. Six months into my business and things are on the up. I can't wait to show you the new Fabric Collections from Moda in the New Year and I'll let you all know when the Pom Pom Makers are back in stock. I've order the little ones too.

I've made quite a few gifts this year which I've loved doing. I actually have to finish quilting my son's American Quilt by tomorrow evening, no pressure. Why do we do it to ourselves :) During Christmas I'd like to finish my Winters Lane Quilt too, not far off actually. 

I'm really looking forward to new Projects too. What have you got planned?

Have a lovely Christmas with family and friends. I have my mum and brother over for Christmas Eve night where we'll enjoy our Christmas Dinner. I'm so looking forward to it.

My Etsy shop will be open and I'll be back at Louth Market on January 4th 2014 ready for the Quilting Season.

Merry Christmas - Helen -

Kirstie's Crafty Christmas

I watched Kirstie's Crafty Christmas this week, not only did I love the programme but also the knock on effect it had on my Pom Pom Maker Sales on my Etsy Shop. As you can see from other posts I've loved my Pom Pom Maker ever since I bought it a year ago. I've used it for so many different decorations and even used it to decorate my stall before my sign arrived.

I've currently sold out of my Pom Pom Makers but have placed an order for more. I'll also be stocking the little small Pom Pom's used on Kirstie's Christmas Hat. So hopefully they'll be available again soon.

Thanks to Kirstie's Programme and to everyone who's bought the Pom Pom Makers. All great news for The Little Fabric Store - Helen -

Pom Pom Makers are back!!!

Yes, Pom Pom Makers are now back in stock. I love these, some of you may have seen me on my Stall making them. I know you can use cardboard circles but when I'm making lots of Pom Pom's I was soon bored. With the Clover Pom Pom Maker it was so much fun and easier than it looks, children love them. These can be purchased from my Etsy Shop or at Louth Market for £5.99. The pack contains 1 large & 1 small Pom Pom Maker. 

I decorated my Hallway this year with Pom Pom's and Paperchains.

My Festive Hallway

I also stock Clover Patchwork Templates. These are available in Square & Octagon also Triangle & Hexagon. These can also be purchased for £5.99. I take these to Craft Events and my Stall as they're a portable and sociable way of Sewing. There are some great Craft books available with patterns for English Paper Piercing. It's a great way to use scraps and clothes you love but no longer wear. 

I hope you're all feeling Festive is then run up to Christmas. It's a busy time for us all. I've been frantically making things for Christmas Gifts. I'm looking forward to sharing these projects in the New Year. What have you been making this year? I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for dropping by - Helen -
