Still Packing

I'm still packing up for Regional Day tomorrow (see previous post for details). I've emptied the shop, then I have to consolidate everything down so it will fit in the car.

I thought I'd let you all know that I now have undyed scrim in stock - no photo, as it does look boring in 2D, but wonderful once it's added to textile projects. I've been asked to stock it several times, and now it's here. I'll have some with me on Saturday. I put some in the shop yesterday and it's already gone - I'd better cut more of that too!

See you at Writtle tomorrow, I'll see you there - it looks like it's going to be a good day!

Regional Day Goodies

I've been busy the last few days getting supplies ready for the Embroiderers' Guild Regional Day on Saturday. The shop is littered with boxes and baskets crammed full of goodies: Oliver Twists threads and fibres, Valdani threads, Craftynotions moulds, puff paint, gilding wax, rusting powder and stamps, plus sari ribbon and wool tops. This is just a selection!

If you happen to pop into the shop this week, you'll have the chance to delve in and choose the pick of the crop before they are all packed into my car for the trip to Writtle on Friday evening. Of course, what's left will be going on the shelves next week, but I've got no idea what will be left!
