Anyone interested in a quick scrap swap?

Would anyone be interested in an informal UK scrap swap, say 200 grams of designer cotton scraps from 2 1/2″ square upwards in size (unless your partner is after string scraps, etc)? I’m thinking of a post out date in about 2 weeks’ time, and sign ups by the end of the weekend so prior […]

It’s Pin it Forward Day in the UK

Have you been using Pinterest? I’ve been using it for a couple of years now to bookmark my favourite tutorials on the internet or designs that inspire me, or just pictures of puppies I like to go back and look at to cheer me up 🙂 Though you’ve always been able to sign up in […]

Fabricate Fundraiser!

As you may know I went for a meeting on Thursday about setting up Fabricate, a magazine for contemporary quilters in the UK released monthly. I am now pitching to raise the funds to continue, here is my video complete with erms and “telephone voice”…   The distributors were enthusiastic as craft titles are a […]

Have you met Laura?

Over a year ago now, Laura decided to arrange a meet up for Folksy sellers in the local area and invited me along as we’d been to fairs and stuff together even though I wasn’t active over there any more. What actually happened is Laura, Zara and I (who had met before at various craft […]

Quilt and Stitch Village

I’ve decided to enter another quilt competition and wondered if you also might like to? The Quilt and Stitch Village 2013 is at Uttoxeter Racecourse (not too far from me!) from 26th-28th April 2013. I know this sounds like it’s absolutely ages away, but if you plan to make a new quilt especially for the show […]

I’m starting my first quilting bee! I couldn’t find one with spaces and wanted to take part in another borders one but it was US […]

More moulds, resin and stuff back in stock

In case anyone who reads this has been waiting the two months it has been since I had resin in, I now have it back in stock (albeit without measuring cups, need to track some of those down from somewhere) and some colourings and new moulds as well. My supplier is selling the business though, […]

Patera bezels

I’ve just started selling the Patera range of deep well bezels in my shop. They’re not cheap as they’re made in the US from cast pewter and then coated (the ÂŁ50 postage and customs bill didn’t help either!). I have a small selection of shapes in antique gold, antique silver, sterling silver and copper. Here’s […]

UK Etsy Challenge

Every month, a craft challenge is run on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/uketsychallenge/ with a theme for each month. The idea is simple, you make something (anything!) as long as it fits that month’s theme, upload it to the Flickr group and then a poll is run on Etsy to decide the winner. Rather appallingly, no one […]

Resin Moulds now available!

When I first started in resin jewellery making, I was amazed that the flexible type moulds couldn’t be bought here in the UK. It’s also one of the main keyword searches that people use when coming to my website- but it was something I didn’t offer. The best- and also best known- mould “brand” is […]
