New Shop Update!

We’ve been super busy for the past few months hatching a plan to move into bigger premises in Huddersfield, those of you who visit our bricks and mortar shop know only too well that we were bursting at the seams in our Linthwaite shop!


After a couple of non-starts over the summer we found our perfect place in Slaithwaite, a gorgeous village just over a mile away from our Linthwaite shop. We took on a huge renovation project and decided to take over a massive building that was the former Wharfeside Inn.


The extra exciting part for us is that we decided to share the building with another female run craft business, Globe Arts.


Globe Arts are an amazing art school that offer some pretty amazing opportunities for learning many different arts. They have sessions in life drawing, fused glass, photography and lots of kids art sessions too. They’re all about making art accessible and also do lots of outreach into local schools, work with families, run children’s parties and much more. Lisa and I are so excited and we have so many ideas for some joint workshops in mind!

We’ve spent the best part of the last 6 weeks ripping out the old pub, think wood panelling everywhere, horrid carpets, 2 huge bar areas, a stage and vile toilets and then re-decorating, new floors laid, new windows, doors and shop fronts fitted, new toilet areas fitted and finally we’re ready to re-open!

Blogger’s Choice June

June’s Blogger’s Choice stash club bundle was chosen by the talent that is Quilt Dad!

10537477_10204468301962715_1318699789606366341_o (2)John has been blogging and quilting for a number of years and has this to say about himself

“Inspired by the growing number of crafting blogs and the emergence of vibrant, modern fabrics in the quilting industry, quilter John Adams taught himself how to use a sewing machine in 2004 and hasn’t looked back. He started his popular blog,, in 2008 to share his love of patchwork with others. John lives in North Carolina with his husband, twin daughters, son, and a slightly crazy German Shorthair Pointer.”

Take a look at the amazing bundle John chose for us
