Ribbon Storage

Our new grey metal spool racks have just arrived...Yay! New in from House Doctor of Denmark, this simple design looks fabulous filled with pretty wrapped wooden spools.

Attached to your wall they create a fabulous & colourful display whilst a very practical storage solution. There are 7 prongs in total that face towards you when fixed to a wall and slightly angled stopping your spools from dropping off the end.

Ready for some more colour? If you love hand sewing you're in the right place. We now stock beautiful shades of cotton floss skeins.
There are two sets available, the first includes those warm yellows, orange, reds and pinks. The other is more of the cool blues and fresh greens with brown.

Get Down With Your Felt Stuff!

Though it's still winter we decided to bring in our new seasons felt collection early. Wave those cold grey skies goodbye and bring in the colour. To be honest, after creating all these gorgeous rolls we just couldn't hide them away and so here they are.

So incredibly yummy, tied with pretty Ribbons and tags they really are quite irresistible.  


Perfect for experimenting with, sew up some brooches, create sweet little hanging decorations. You could even use the ribbon tied to around the roll to add as a trim on your felt.
The question is....which colour combo do you choose?

Don't forget, we also have 83 individual colours available in sheets if you are looking for specific shades.

We always like to know your thoughts, so feel free to post a comment.

Ooooo Look at our Wooden Spools......How Lovely!

Really really pleased with our feature in the December issue of Homes & Gardens, they have come up with a fantastic idea with our vintage style spools and a selection of beautiful ribbons - though I have to admit not all the ribbons are ours. It's a classic style wreath with a modern twist - it looks very chic and elegant!

Nine spools, a collection of pretty ribbons including a nice wide piece for the bow and some thickish wire (thick enough to carry the weight of the spools) bent into a circle to thread the spools onto - so simple and lovely!

Very inspiring as you can change the ribbons to match each season. I think red and white would look amazing with spots, stripes, stitched and plain in velvet,satin and grosgrain ...... Ok, I don't really need to convince myself anymore... I'm definately going to have to give this one a try folks!  We currently sell our spools in sets of 3 or 5 which is perfect for making your wreath. We also sell ribbon on its own or on the spool ready to use.

 If any of you fancy having a go, I would love to see your pics!

If you want to make some nice little gifts for Christmas or give someone a kit that they can experiment with themselves then these are a great buy. They contain 10 shades and 20 pieces of wool felt - a perfect sample for making decorations, brooches, pin cushions.......

It's never too early.....

Well folks, I managed to grab some time to take a few pictures  as promised. After having had a play with them I have put a selection together for you along with some of the other ones that we currently stock. I have to say that red and white is one of my favourite ribbon colour combos as it reminds me of a Scandinavian Christmas.

I know it's ridiculously early to start bringing out the traditional Christmas reds and greens (I hear you all say) but I know a lot of crafters that are already preparing their gift stocks in time for the festive season. Our ribbons have been so popular which is why we are expanding our range to include more stripes, stitched, spots, plain and patterned.

We literally couldn't cope with the amount of orders we had last Christmas and so this year we are getting ready early. If there is a specific colour or design of ribbon you have in mind or you want large quantities please do get in touch with us.

It's a perfect time to start gathering your ribbon stash!

So what's new?

I'm sooo excited and can't wait to show you our lovely brand new ribbons. They arrived today and though it took me literally seconds to get them out the box I just need to find an extra day in the week so that I can get some photos please bear with (oops that's a bit Miranda-ish lol).

Everyone seems to be going crazy for our wool felt bundles at the moment and so I've been having fun making up some new colourways for this coming Autumn. If you're making bits and bobs for a craft market or want to make gifts these bundles of loveliness are just perfect!
