I am very privileged to be in a position to help people learn new crafts and skills through the online classes and workshops I provide. There is nothing better than seeing someone try something for the first time and then develop a love for that skill. Before making the hexagon candle mat, Julie had never done English Paper Piecing, but now, she is making a very special quilt. I just love the fabrics Julie is using, it's going to be an amazing quilt.
Over the years, I've tried different ways to help organise my sewing space. I had been using a bobbin tray but, when it got knocked off the table, I would be chasing bobbins all over the floor. Once they'd been retrieved, I'd have to go through the process of rewinding them before putting them back in the tray. It made testing this Bobbin Saver very interesting. Watch the video and see me put it through it's paces.

You may remember we had some fund raising going on a few weeks ago in the Get Creative with Loopy group. This week I received a thank you letter from Breast Cancer Haven and I wanted to say thank you to all of you that supported the event. In total, they managed to raising £40,000 which is amazing! Thank you.
Don't forget, I am always happy to make custom items so you get exactly what you are looking for. Just send me a message and let me know what you need. If, like Julie, you'd like to learn new skills, you would find our member's club where you get a new project each month is just what you need. Choose the annual membership and you will receive a free copy of the 2018 Create with Loopy Calendar as well as getting 12 months membership for the price of 9. Currently, the free class talks you through making cushions from treasured shirts. This class will soon be changing, so now is the time to get signed up if you don't want to miss it. Please share your photos with us if you have a go. If you would like to make someone a gift of a class or an item but not sure which one to get, our gift certificates are a great idea, just visit the website for more details. You can see details of the current calendar project here. I am taking orders for bespoke items and quilts for June onward. If you have a special event coming up, please book your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
