Have you seen?

I was searching for buttons for my Melly and Me Reindeer’s legs and was so frustrated by the range available at a reasonable price.  I have now found a great range of buttons from Riley Blake, at a great price – you get 24 buttons for £1.30! 

We have taken receipt of our first shipment and have blues, pinks, greens, and reds in stock.

OMG – Birch Fabrics & Monaluna are just fabulous!

We have just discovered a new range of really contemporary and fun fabrics from a company called Birch (organic cotton fabrics), their collection includes prints from Monaluna (who also designs for Kaufman).  The prints are really crisp, the colours are vivid but not too in your face, we are definatley going to put in an order early in the new year, so here is your chance to influence our purchasing department!


Click on the two links below to review their collections, and let us know what you like, and what you would use if for!  All of you who take the time to give us your feedback will be put in a draw to win a voucher for £15 to spend in store, with 5 runners up being given £5 to spend on anything in store.

Closing date: 20th December 2010.  Send you thoughts to:

Premier Prints Grows Up but Stays Funky

If you haven’t already seen our range from Premier Prints then take a look.  These fabrics come in 54″ widths and are cotton duck in weight, but are priced like regular cottons! 

We first fell in love with the elephant and giraffe prints in great colours for kids, but our love affair has blossomed into something more, we now stock over 80 different prints and the latest arrivals are decidedly more grown up, but still crisp and bold and funky.

We can see these being used for cushions, upholstery, chair covers and more.

OK, we couldn’t resist rex and hooty!  Click here to see the entire range! or contact us for samples.

Dr Seuss – new range of fab fun fabrics from Kaufman

We have taken delivery of a small amount of the Celebrate Dr Seuss Collection, if it is popular we will get more in.  I have to admit to sneeking some for PJs for Christmas for my boys!
