We all really enjoyed the trade show, it was great to get the chance to meet up with so many of our sponsors and customers. Plus we got the chance to make lots of new friends too. We found some gorgeous fabrics from a new French company who are just breaking into the UK (more to come on that soon), plus there were hundreds of stunning felt kits from several different companies which will be on the market soon. We also had some very exciting meetings which will hopefully help us continue to grow the site further in the coming year.
We're adding some new ideas to the site stage by stage (so many ideas and so little time!), we have started by adding a new weekly sewing tips feature (the first one by Make & Do Studios can be found here). Also we have a new monhtly series of posts about interior design and sewing things for your home starting next week written by Pippa Blackler.
