Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All.

Tomorrow, Saturday 20th December will be our last day in the shop until we reopen again on January 3rd.
We have one final delivery to show you before we close on Saturday.  "Crazy for Red" by Minick and Simpson for Moda is a fantastic collection of tans, creams and the rich vivid reds we love Moda so much for.
Reds are deeper in colour than shown in photo

These tans are a much deeper colour than seen in the photo.

There are 24 prints in this range with great small prints, some spots, some paisleys and some large rambling tone on tone florals.  "Crazy for Red" is $23.00 mt and if you fancy a handy supply of reds, tans and creams at the ready in the sewing room, the 1/8 packs have all 24 for $72.00.

It is not too early to start making sewing plans for the new year, and boy do we have good news for you all.  Di Ford Hall is coming to Threadbear in 2015.   We are looking forward to three wonderful days with Di.....and with a bit of advance travel warning we are hoping that some of you from further away may be able to join us.
