Doesn't time fly...

Where have the last couple of months gone?
Setting up Pretty Fabrics and Trims has certainly kept us busy (thank you!) and to be honest has been a steep (but enjoyable) learning curve.   We are thrilled by the support that we have received and thank each and everyone of you who have made a purchase from us.
When we opened our shop back in April, we really hoped that Our Ethos, would be embraced and we can not believe the feedback we've received and the lovely customers we have met, thank you!
We have just come back from our annual trip to the North Norfolk coast.  It's the perfect destination, only two and half hours in the car, so not too many"are we there yet!" and yet when you are there it feels like a million miles away..Perfect!
We had packed good weather clothes and in view of the dreadful weather we had before we left, wellies and waterproofs, however the sun did shine..yay!!!!
Most days were spent on the beach

or throwing cobbles into the sea
watching the boats go out

and doing a little sewing, (using our felt of course!)
We're now back and ready to go!
I'm sure however, you must have been wondering what we had been up to?
Before we left, we took delivery of some super new products.....
First up some brand new colours of Divine Twine™

You can see our full range HERE
Having received lots of requests, we also now stock 22 of our favourite Tilda fabrics on the roll (Penny and I are in fabric heaven!)

 In addition to our 'Small' and 'Mini' size pieces you can now purchase these

fabrics by the
We also added some very pretty Crochet Lace

and some bright and colourful American Crafts Ribbons

You can also now
and are now shipping our parcels full of loveliness worldwide

What makes us very happy is to receive feedback our our products and services and to see what you've been making.  It truly makes our day when you send us some pictures.....
These fabulous Bitty Blooms were made by Jane using one of our Bitty Blooms 'Make it' packs how lovely are they??!!

This gorgeous doll was made by the extremely talented Katie from Birdy's Dolls using a selection of our super soft Felt.  You must take a peek at her dolls, they are so pretty!!

and finally, this fabulous brooch was made by Andrea over at Polka using our vintage Jubilee ribbon ( sadly now sold out....sorry!!)  Andrea brooches and charms are to die for...( I have my very own flower one!)

Thank you so much Jane, Katie and Andrea for sharing these with us!

Finally (Phew now that was a long post!), we will be back very soon, with a simple yet lovely brand new  'Make it' project, but in the meanwhile

Happy Sewing!
