Sale! Half Metre Madness

The sun is trying to shine, daffodils are blooming along the sides of the roads and birds are singing - yay spring!

We're full of the joys of spring, with lots of exciting plans for The Workroom over Easter and the launch of our autumn class schedule just a few weeks away!

To clear some space ahead of our building work at Easter we're offering all of our pre-cut 1/2m pieces for £5 each. I love 1/2m pieces, they are my favourite precut - just enough for a project, you won't frun short like with a FQ and they are the prefect size for so many projects from Fabric Baskets to Scarves and Granny Bags. Stock up!

If you're in search of some new inspiration, we also have just taken delivery of so many lovely new prints, from spring pastels to deliciously zesty prints, from Anna Maria Horner to Denyse Schmidt - we guarantee we'll get those creative cogs whirring! We have Wildwood by Elizabeth Olwen for Cloud 9 Organic Fabric, we have Hello Bear! by Bonnie Christine, Gossamer by Sharon Holland which are both printed on our favourite premium cotton by Art Gallery Fabrics. We have lots of new Sevenberry prints from lovely lime pears to foxes and some Wimpy Kid for the boys, and coming tomorrow Yoyogi Park by the iconic fabric designer Skinny Laminx from South Africa ( checkout her early fabric designs in my lampshade obsession here- i'm a long time fan!)

We've had such a packed schedule the last couple of weeks that I almost can't remember every class we've taught! Our Comic Relief Crafternoon on Friday was so much fun and many felty chicks were made and we raised just over £100 for Comic Relief. Remember that you still have until Friday to bid on one of our class sample items, all proceeds to Comic Relief. 

We have Simple Samplers coming to completion, Log Cabins and Farmers Wife quilts getting nearer, Bee in My Bonnet loveliness, so much Free Motion Embroidery inspiration bursting out of our pages on Facebook at the moment - and such exuberance!

We have had gorgeous lampshades, lovely fabric baskets, so many little people making their Easter Egg Bags in anticipation! 

We have dressmakers learning how to amend patterns for their measurements, Little Girls Dresses nearing completion, lot's of Getting To Know Your Sewing Machine and much much more!

This Easter we have exciting plans for expansion at The Workroom so we will be closing on Fri 27th March for an extended break to allow us to clear everything out, knock down walls and then fit it all out again in glorious PlainStitch style!

If you think you'll need a fabric fix in the next few weeks come and shop our £5 Half Metre Madness in the next week to make sure you won't run short! When that spring sun starts to shine you want to be ready for inspiration to strike!

We are open Thurs and Fri 9.30am - 1pm and Sat 10am til 3pm this week, then Wed - Fri next week 9.30am - 1pm then we close for Easter.
