(logo designed by gem, )Patch Fabric and Haberdashery is a new website which will provide you with a one stop shop for fun fabric and fabulous trimmings.
you can find it here....and the website is open now selling fabulous ribbons and trimmings for all crafting purposes, with a shop full of fun fabrics following in May. Patch will be stocking fabrics by Michael Miller, Clothworks, P&B Fabrics and Red Rooster.
(Here is a teeny peak of some of the fabric....)
So how do I know about this new venture???? Well...Patch is my new baby!!
It was time for me to go back to work....time for me anyway, if not the rest of the family. It has all happened so quickly, the idea is not 'quick' thats been floating around in our conversations for the past couple of years...but I am still spinning a little!
I have stepped back slightly from plan A...which involved a pink painted shop with a huge pine table in amongst the fabric and trimmings, where people could come and chat and craft...but plan B is still a big committment for all of us, financially and time wise, but one I believe is worth it, thankfully my lovely husband thinks its worth it too, as did our bank manager!!!
My 2 eldest boys have agreed to share a bedroom for another year while we see where the business goes so I have an office......come store room!!
I have had a very unenjoyable few weeks choosing stock..purchasing stock...taking delivery of stock...as you can imagine lol!!! Unfortunately, the fabric takes longer to arrive than I anticipated, so I am just going to open for ribbons and trimmings until they arrive...of course you will be the first to hear!!!
But here we are...nearly...ready to rumble.
I have learnt more computer skills in 2 weeks than the last 2 years, I hope my website is straight forward to use.....
I'm going to be blogging over here too. And I would love it if you joined me.
I hope not to neglect DollyDollop too much!!! But bear with me over the next few weeks!! Of course I'll definately be back on Monday to announce the giveaway winner.........
I hope you'll come over to Patch and see what I'm up to...the champagne is on ice lol!!!
