Season 6 of the GBSB was back on our screens at 9pm last night and I was so so HAPPY to see it!

#MakeNine2020 Challenge

Now we're settled into the New Year, I bet I'm not the only person struggling with the urge to MAKE ALL THE THINGS! I also bet I'm not the only person with a list of WIP's or fabrics stashed for a particular project from last year (or perhaps even from the year before that....).

The #MakeNine Challenge first came about in 2015 following the popularity of the #BestNine threads…

Finding Fabrics

If you’re new to sewing it can be frustrating not being able to find the type of fabrics you need or want. An experienced sewer can find it equally as frustrating not being able to find reliable suppliers. Because of this I thought it would be useful to share some links to some fabric retailers I know of. These are all UK based, so you’ll avoid any pesky customs charges. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CaboodleTextiles www.etsy.com/uk/shop/bizzyandboofabrics www.misformake.co.uk www.tiedyesmallthings.co.uk https://www.sparkleandroar.com/product-category/super-cool-fabric-shop/   *Please note, these recommendations have been sponsored or paid for and I cannot be…
