We are getting ready for our next featured class and project which starts on Monday. If you would like to have a gentle introduction to making clothes, then come and join us as we make a simple skirt. Believe me, if I can do it, you certainly can. You can find out the details here.
I just had to share this from Club Member Ann. This is first time Ann has done so much quilting and I'm pleased to say, it's inspired her to carry on. I was really impressed with Nicola too, so this week, you are getting two for the price of one. This was the first time Nicola had used a walking foot and it's all been very worthwhile. Here is Nicola's bag.
This week, I'm sharing a video that was made in response to a question in the Create With Loopy Member's Club. Here I discuss where the feed dogs are, what they do and why we want to cover or lower them for Free Motion Embroidery or Quilting. I hope you will find it useful too.
If you are looking for gifts for children Hobbycraft are doing 3 for 2 on craft kits. We used to have great fun with these when my boys were younger especially the science kits. The Paint a Teepee kit looks great fun too. If you're looking to treat yourself, they have discounts on some of their sewing machines.
Exclusions apply, but Deramores are offering up to 25% off on orders over £50, just use the code FIFTY but you need to hurry, this offer ends tomorrow.
Crafter's Companion birthday offers are still going, again you need to be quick to take advantage. These offers end tomorrow.
Create and Craft have some gorgeous Toft crochet kits available. It's so hard to pick a favourite but I'm going for Lou the Merino as my pet name was always Lou.
If you're looking to treat yourself to something luxurious, Love Knitting have 30% off their luxury yarn. They also have a selection of yarns at 50% off.
This week, Empress Mills have special offers on their wadding. You'll have to click through to the individual product pages to see the discounts. If you are thinking of making quilts or bags over the next few weeks, it's a good time to stock up.
Finally, if you're looking for fabric, I Want Fabric are offering 10% everything if you use the code IWFOCT.
