The open day – September 2017

We had the second open day of the year yesterday and it was another fun afternoon. This post serves as a little insight to the time we had and what was available and on display. Click the image below to view a video slideshow of some more photos from the day. It is a very […]

Tigley Textiles came to doodle stitch with us

On June 29th, we had a crackin good day at the studio with Julie Brand; aka Tigley Textiles. We were very lucky to have her, as she lives in Worcester. We were very fortunate that Julie’s husband needed to come up to Manchester for a course, so she came along for the ride. I found […]

Thanks, thanks and more thanks

Yes indeed I have so many people to thank for the successful open day we had yesterday. I was so chuffed with the turnout and the great atmosphere created by them. I initiated the day and did all the prep work and promotion work but so many people made it the lively afternoon it was. […]

The Finish-a-long sewing club has one vacancy.

  EDIT*THE VACANCY WAS SCOOPED UP, SO NO LONGER AVAILABLE* The poster and the title say it all. There’s just one spot available in our Finish-a-long club. It’s a small sewing club of normally 6 of us. One lady can’t do the next batch of 6 sessions. We’ve all found the first batch to be […]

Let’s see what’s what in this studio

I’ve recently had some fab feedback from a new lady to the studio. Angela has been for a couple of evening sewcials and has decided that the Tuesday evenings are easier for her to attend. That’s excellent for her! She seized the moment and came along a couple of times to see for herself what […]

Escapee guild creative challenge – need some hygge?

Are you an escapee in the making? Do you love sewing because it gives you ‘down time’? Does it let you be an escapee from the daily humdrum? Try this new, real escapee guild challenge to provide some hygge for yourself. This idea was presented to me last week and I loved it straight away. […]

Churndash-it-up and get creative

That’s right – two ‘C’ words but definitely not the biggie! I’ve made a churndash block quilt. There’s nothing overly exciting about that in some respects. It’s not a new concept.  I’m chuffed to bits though, as it was on my ‘finish-a-long’ list, so it’s a ‘tick’ for me! Some of you will ask ‘why?’ […]

Two years in

Cake! Yes, that’s right! I’m celebrating two years of having the studio today. 2 years ago I got the keys for the studio, after what felt like a very long time, loads of work and a tonne and a half of stepping out of my comfort zone and up into that role of studio owner. […]

Is this my failure?

Last Monday I made a very difficult decision. I pulled out of the North West UK Modern Quilter’s guild. Had I been a failure?
