Annie's Ramblings - 5th July 2023
Hi there. It is hard to believe we are now more than half way through the year...almost time to think about Christmas! Actually it probably is, if you are going to be making gifts for everyone this year. We do have plenty of fabric, novelty buttons, felt, patterns and inspiration to make it happen.
This gorgeous table runner pattern has just arrived in from Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched and all these Santas can’t not make you smile!
We also stock a wide range of haberdashery from zips, elastic, threads, labelling pens, fabric markers, glue, domes, velcroe, bias binding, fabric dye, repair patches, kilt pins, bra extenders and many, many more items that you didn’t know you needed until you need them. However if there is something that you desperately need that we don’t have in stock, I am happy to try and source it for you – just let me know.
If you are a dedicated stitcher and are quite capable of buying your own presents...and getting exactly what you wished for, this one is for you! This beautiful wooden chest comes complete with 500 DMC colours and would look gorgeous in any sewing room. The top lid opens up to provide storeage for your accessories, and you can use the five pinewood drawers to organise your threads by colour or number. In stock now it is just $1290.00.
While you are sitting in front of the fire or the heater doing your hand stitching, now is also a good time to have your sewing machine or overlocker serviced. Our authorised technician is on site, and able to fix all makes and models.
Having your machines serviced regularly (recommended every 12 months) is all part of looking after the investment you made.
If it is time to up-grade we still have the very beautiful Kaffe Fassett special edition Bernina 570 available. As a bonus this model comes with a range of Kaffe designed embroidery stitches built. But be in quick as these special edition machines are limited, and once they are gone they are gone. Ask us for a free demo!
Sorry there is no recipe this week as I have had new flooring put down in my test kitchen, and I am also busy getting ready for a fabulous weekend in Akaroa for our annual stitching.
Best wishes and happy stitching from the team at Annie’s CQS.
