August 2018

Thank you for all your support during our annual July sale. We are often so busy during the course of the year that good stock sometimes gets lost amongst the thousands of meters of fabric we have on offer. Our July sale forces us to turn the shop upside down and in the process we rediscover fabrics that have been forgotten – but are as beautiful as ever. We were able to offer those fabrics at significantly reduced prices to make way for new stock coming in (and they literally flew off the shelves) – so a win win situation all round! (more…)

May 2018

If the seasons are each ninety one and a bit days long and 21 June is mid-winter, then theoretically winter began on the 6th of May. It is still beautifully warm during the day but jerseys are a must in the evenings and mornings – and whichever way you look at it, it’s only getting colder from here on.
May’s birthstone is the Emerald – emblematic of love and success – and emerald remains a key decorating colour for 2018. Winter naturally lends itself to the use of thicker, more tactile fabrics and that’s why velvets – either in dark colours or earthy shades of clay, terracotta and ochre are a must this season.

November 2017

Did you know that November is the National Month of Novel writing? It is also the National Month of Friendship (lovely), but it is also the national peanut butter lover’s month and , wait for it, the national month of spinach and squash! Seriously – who comes up with this stuff I wonder? I have therefore just decided that November is the national month of re-upholstering your couches and making new curtains for your living room!

September 2017

Aaah September – I am so glad you are here. Robin Williams said that Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’ and it’s hard to disagree with that. I suddenly have this overwhelming urge to dress in billowy things and clean everything in sight in my home! But spring cleaning really can be cathartic. (more…)

For a long time I have always wanted to print designs on my own fabric but I’d never found the one perfect design that completely resonated with me. And so the idea just lay dormant in the back of my mind. (more…)

May_2017

The first of May is celebrated around the world as International Labour Day. But the second of May is the International Day of Idleness and so I hope you had a very restful long weekend last week! This Saturday coming up is World Naked Gardening Day – although given our decidedly cooler temperatures I think we should leave this one to those in the Northern Hemisphere who are getting all excited about Spring.

April 2017

april_2017

Did you know that on 01 April it will be exactly 13 weeks since New year’s Day? Time to dust off those resolutions, see how well – or not well – you have progressed, reset one’s goals and priorities and re-establish motivation towards achieving those goals. There are, as usual, many holidays looming during the month, so use the time to do this. (more…)

The theme for February is ‘balance’. ‘The calm and balanced mind is the strong and great mind, the hurried and agitated mind is the weak one’ (Wallace Wattles). Or how about this – ‘Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony’. (Thomas Merton). (more…)

On 21 September we celebrated our 7th anniversary. It feels like a lifetime ago that we first opened our doors yet, oddly, the time has gone by so unbelievably quickly. (more…)
