shelves of cotton fabrics in many colours and designs

Life and shop

A lot has happened since my last blog post. Let's just say I'm not one to write a diary about my life. There is just too much happening in it. She says two weddings and a grandchild later....

So, in 2017 I moved the business into a shop close to the industrial estate where I used to work. It's been a busy time. The shop is going well, we sell fabrics and some haberdashery but also things we make there, especially our own plus size clothing label Big Girl's Blouse. We also still do alterations and make new things for home and people. And we sell our own hats, caps and lots of cushions here too.

"SEW!" Storefront with proprietor and seamstress Manuela Joynes
The sewing school is doing well at the moment as more people are wanting to learn how to sew. It's a real pleasure to teach what I love doing.
Currently we have two evening classes running all the time and on occassion there are some Saturday workshops going on as well.
The courses list for next year is also available now. If you need to find out if there is anything for you click on the link below to take you to the booking page.
