Liebster Award and Fabric Sample Sales

The lovely Madame Tifaine nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much here’s my random three facts.

  1. I’m currently learning Mandarin and have applied for a scholarship to spend 4 weeks studying in China this summer. Wish me luck!!
  2. I’ve been wanting to start a Etsy business for ages. Here’s a hint of the stuff I have.
  3. I’m making Sloe gin this year. I’m ridiculously excited and plan to save a small bottle and let it age to be drunk when I have my 10th wedding anniversary.

I want to tag Sophie Bach she is such a sewing inspiration.

Now, to the serious business of fabric. Sample sales are amazing. If you do live in London or near enough to travel down easily I would google fabric sample sales monthly because you might catch brilliant offers. Even if you don’t live close I recommend coming down for a sample sale, the prices are incomparable, especially for the quality. I’m kicking myself for missing 3 good fabric sample sales last year because I wasn’t searching for them. The next fabric sample sale I know of is on the 26th March. At Fashion Capital, you can see some of the fabric they offer at the sale here or buy it online if you can’t make it down. They do a monthly fabric sample sale, so if you can’t make it down to this weekend don’t worry.

I’m baffled about what to tweet about usually but I will post information of sample sales on my twitter. I’ll probably post on my instagram too.

I’m officially drowning in fabric. For the first time I’m scared of how much fabric I have. It’s 100% down to a sample sale I visited last week. I got around 40 metres for less then £50.

 

Not even all of it is pictured! So many plans! Thank you to everybody who has been wishing me well. 4 more weeks until I can sew again! The stash needs to start reducing I’ve run out of space for it all. My stash is now spread across three rooms, yikes!

 

Have a brilliant Easter xx
