Special Workroom Days...........

Some days at The Workroom are just extra special. I teach some of the most talented, creative and kind women you could hope to know. Today was a steady stream of wonderful. Each time the doorbell rang another delight awaited. People coming to sew for the day, popping in to catch up, to show their progress on a project, just to see 'whats new?'

First Vickie arrived with her much anticipated Fabulous Ameo Stag Fabric. Doesn't it look fabulous? I'm so excited about stocking this at The Workroom - Designed and made in Halton, Bucks! Local Fabric! We're selling fat quarters, half meters and meterage while stocks last.

Next a local fellow English Paper Piecer popped in and we had a lovely chat about piecing papers....more on that soon.

Then a dear dear sewing friend with a gorgeous pressie - handmade fabric strawberry mini pin cushions! Adorable! The perfect gift - I was so grateful.  Plus look at the fab selection of vintage cottons she picked up in the charity shop up the road on the way! What a find!

Then more lovely friends, students from Simple Sampler, bearing flowers and handmade cards - tears! More old Simple Sampler friends popping in for a cuppa and telling tales of new projects, off to the Long Arm Quilter this week - so many wonderful quilts being made!

Of course they all left with very tempting bags of fabric loveliness. We've got so much delicious fabric at the moment and the bundles are selling like hot cakes - Heather Bailey, Heather Ross, Emmy Grace, Retro Orchard, September Blue - aren't they pretty?

I've been making teacher pressies - it was nearly impossible to decide which fabric to use! Aren't these beauties, we were so lucky to have such fabulous teachers this year. I hope they like their bags x
