With sewing machines becoming ever more computerised and a lot more of the components being made from plastic, it's essential we are kind to our machines. They often involve a large outlay of cash, so we want them to last as long as possible. One small way to keep our machines happy is by removing the thread in the correct way. Not sure what I mean? Then let this short video help you.
With it being the weekend of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are loads of offers around from a variety of outlets. As we are often stocking up on our crafty bits, it's nice to know we haven't been left out. Here is a quick round up of those that have special offers on over the weekend.

The Village Haberdashery-Black Friday offers here. They also have some really interesting needlepoint kits based on different cities from around the world, a great way to remember special places.
