Mollie Makes, Christmas kits and Newsletter

The latest issue of Mollie Makes arrived today. The cover kit has some cute little buttons to stitch and inside there are plenty of ideas to get you crafting into the Autumn. You can make monsters in felt, a pretty patchwork pillow, a baby blanket, tea cosy, lovely layered corsages, a diary cover and mug cosies. I really like this magazine, which continues to inspire.

I'm busy trying to get a newsletter out this week. There is news of a special event that we are holding in conjunction with Brother Sewing Machines, together with information about our Christmas opening hours and advance notice of our sale.

I'm slowly printing out those that need to be posted - they will go out over the course of the next week -  and I'm hoping to get the email version out this week.  This will probably be the last newsletter in the current format as I'm hoping that the new website that Ray is working on will be able to generate a nice shiny newsletter that will be easier to access. 

My Buttonbag Christmas kits have also arrived today. They are so sweet I can hardly stop from pulling open the boxes and starting to stitch them myself. Must resist though!

There is an easy to stich advent calendar:
 little button hearts:

robins for your tree:

 

felt jewellery:
  and a cute little sewing tin with everything a beginner will need to start sewing!

Should you not receive your newsletter, or if you can't wait to read it, it is available as a pdf document online here.
