We have a whole host of activities planned for the weekend (22nd – 24th) including some amazing demonstrations, competitions, together with goody bags and exclusive offers – so make sure to note the dates in your diary.

So, back to August and just a little recap of some of the exciting things that went on in store:

Jennie Rayment

We had a fabulous day with Jennie on the 5th August – lots of our customers came along to learn some classic patchwork techniques and make their own cushion covers.

Strawberry Tea

Breast Cancer Care was the focus for our fundraising event this month and we had lots of fun with our ‘Make and Takes’, and a little coffee and cake thrown in for good measure. A big ‘Thank You’ to all our customers who came along to help raise funds for this terrific cause.


Saturday 12th August saw the team from Powertex join us in store for an amazing demonstration using their environmentally friendly water-based liquid sculpting medium.

Colouring Day

Our Colouring Day was a huge success – the fabulous range of Spectrum Noir products were the main focus during the day and lots of our customers came along to join in the ‘Make and Takes’ and watch the many demonstrations provided by the staff, and our expert local artist Sandra Rushton.
