January was Sew Good
It’s almost feels like January did not not happen as we had so much going on during January.
Mostly we saw a huge amount repairs and servicing come in, it appears that you all had a lots of sewing to do for Christmas which kept you busy not only that its now keeping us busy.
Not only are we online with SewingDirect.co.uk we also have a fully stock shop, so if there is anything you like online you can always come and collect from the shop.
This also means if you are buying a new machine then you can try before you take it away.
We have been making great developments within the shop, which has caused a lot of head scathing and re drawing the lay out. We are planning great new things in 2017
Firstly, we are looking at adding another yarn range within the shop, we currently have James C Bretts range in the shop, but we are going to add another range, which is very exciting.
We have also playing with the layout within the shop, to try and git more yarn on display so you can all see what we have.
Along with all of the above we have also been adding sewing new ranges to our sewing machines sections and we are most excited about the Toyota Sewing Machine Oekaki Renaissance we have one on its way to us and are looking forward to it arriving, have a look at this short video.
Last but by no means least we have the lessons. These are going from strength to strength
We are adding so many new course on a weekly basis is hard to keep up with it call, have a look at our Facebook page for more information.
The new course we have added are basic clothes alteration, basic home sewing course, a get to know your sewing machines course.
I am sure February while a little shorter will still be a great month.
We cannot wait can you?
Well that was week one over with and what a great week we had in the shop.
It was great to hear all of your stories on what you have been given and to hear about your new year projects. And fantastic so many of you are starting new things.
Today we have been added a range of fat quarters to our website these will be added to as we go forward.
Happy new year to you all.
We have a very exciting 2017 ahead of us, the plans to carry on on building the classroom portfolio.
Tomorrow starts with our tailoring course – this is the first of 5 week course where you will be making your own trousers.

Tomorrow start a new stage for the shop, we have our first workshop starting at 10.00am with the get to know your overlock.
It is a very exciting stage and one that has taken a lot of hard work, I’ve attached a few photos so you can see what we had to do.
We have also started to up load all the course online so you can secure your course at any time.
We are also adding to the list every week, just recently we added the tailoring course, beginners guide to patchwork and also in the pipeline is skit making. There I also talk about adding an alteration side to the shop… so watch this space.

Things are moving on – Lesson plan – and Fat Quarters
Well with a few weeks left before out lessons start we have had a few changes of plans regarding the room and how we want it to look, our old plan did not maximize the room for space, so it would have meant that the would also have had to be a compromise, which we felt this was not good enough, so we are not on plan 3. its a good job there are 24hrs in a day!
It its still very exciting and I cannot wait for the lessons to become a regular feature at the shop. I am just starting to work on a embroidery course, we have had a few interested in this, so I am hoping to combine a free hand course and a how to use your Sewing machines pre set patterns to help with embroidery. I think I need to work on the name as this does seem a little to long!
We also have had out first shipment of Fat quarters arrived and these are out on display, ill ad photos soon and also get them on the website. But we do have some great Peter rabbit quarters within the shipments.
If you are interested in more details or if you would like to know more about the courses please let me know.
