Leather and technology

We are evolving ‘dinosaurs’ so we are making a kit which we would use as a hip coin purse but you might use for your headphones!!


We have also been continuing our journey with Liberty fabrics and created a charming leather coin purse. The kit will show you how to stitch with leather and enjoy applying Liberty fabric details.



Don’t you just love tweed??

As you know we had the most brilliant time at The Handmade Fair and we met the Donegal Tweed ladies and the Edinburgh Kilt makers. We just couldn’t resist being inspired by the colours and quality. So we have made some more purses and a clutch bag so you can have your phone, keys, cash  and lipstick all in one place.

Christmas just got a bit nearer……



A sneak preview of our take on Advent! Create a unique  Advent  heirloom for your friends and family. Use it every year to add secret presents reveled each day, as the excitment builds. You have the fun of creating it and seeing their joy as they receive their little gift.


We are creating a range of Christmas tree decorations for you to make. We have used our signature felt, and lovely little stitch guide so you can create truly individual decorations, that you can  bring out every year.



We have found these beautiful antique Derbyshire Mill bobbins and have filled them with our handmade Christmas Ribbon. A lovely combination of colours and history.


Christmas is coming…..

Preparations of new Christmas stock is well under way. Also check out our new range of purses including our lovely tweed purses and clutch bags, inspired by the Donegal Tweed we got from Kirstie Allopp’s The Handmade Fair.

With the clocks about to change, give yourself a treat and and pop back to the website next weekend.

Look forward to seeing you then.
