A question I have for you

Hello there Here’s a video update for you, with a question at the end I’d love for you to consider please. If you have trouble viewing the video, here’s a brief overview of what I have to say in it. Tomorrow the beginner’s workshops start. The first one helps you to get to know more about […]

Success for this Woman and it could be yours too

Hello there To end the year with successes is always a goal but when starting a new business, it can’t be guaranteed, no matter how hard you work or wish for it. In some ways I was lucky and in others my success was down to me letting go of fear and getting on with it. […]

A video from Diane

Hi everyone I didn’t manage to get the newsletter out last night and since there’s such a lot to report on, I thought it’d make a nice change and be easier to do a video instead. I meant for it to be quicker than 9 minutes but if you haven’t got 9 minutes spare right […]

Karen Lewis Textiles’ screen printing class

Squeal! It’s real! I know you might be finding this tedious now but sorry/not sorry. I have yet more exciting news about the studio. I have only just finalised arrangements for Karen Lewis to come and do a screen printing workshop at Stitchscape. That’s right; Karen of Karen Lewis Textiles‘ fame. At the studio! In […]

Squeal central about the press

Hello there Well, yesterday I announced that I’m hopefully going to appear in the Woman’s Own magazine in an article about women who think that 2015 has been ‘their’ year and now today I can finally announce that the December patchwork class at the studio is highlighted in the December issue of British Patchwork & quilting magazine. […]

Vulnerability, shame and oh yes, the biggie; fear

Hello. Now this isn’t a post you were expecting I bet. To be honest, it isn’t quite the post I came on to write either but things happen for a reason, so I’m being brave and running with how it’s going. I couldn’t sleep when I got into bed tonight, which is unusual, as normally […]

Patchwork Flipagram

Hello everyone. Oh dear, hasn’t it been such a long time since I did a blog post. So many other business type things take my time, such as planning, prepping and making things for workshops and then all the finance side of things and internet stuff. The latter has so much new stuff for me […]

Smiley stitcher on oil

Lol, isn’t that sewing smiley cute?! I clearly need to get out more! Anyway, on with the serious business of sewing with oilcloth (is the blog title making more sense now?!) As all my newsletter readers know, the reason I thought about making these toiletry bags is because one of my sisters unashamedly hinted how […]

Freestanding lace machine embroidery

As part of the workshop programme I have in place at the studio, I had a machine embroidery session on Saturday. Unfortunately since I’m so new around here, nobody showed up. I’m not one to let that get me down, so I set myself a challenge. I had this thread.  I had in mind doing […]
