Im back from Summer Shut Down :0)

After a lovely time off with my children I am now back to work getting on with customers orders and enquires. I will aim  to get through all messages by this weekend so please bare with me as there are a lot to work through.

I will be out on the office on Monday afternoon until some time late on on Wednesday as I am being taken away for a treat with my husband - the first time in years without the children so I am both excited and nervous.

After that it is back to work and preparation for Fibre Fest which I leave for on the afternoon of Friday 19th August. This show is at Bicton College on Saturdays and Sunday so if you love fibres, fabric, wool and everything crafty then come along.

Have a great and happy week. From Samantha

Off to Cold Harbour Mill - then Summer Shut Down

Well this will be my last blog post for a little while as I will be busy juggling my other major commitment in life, my family.

Today you will be able to meet myself and my children at the Cold Harbour Mill - Wool and Craft Show in Devon. If you miss this chance I am afraid I will not be around for a week or so as I embark on a summer holiday adventure with my family, returning to work on the 12th August.

I look forward to meeting as many people as possible today and then hearing from as many people as possible on my return to work on the 12th August.

Until then I wish you a very happy and safe summer time.

Right well im just about sorted for this show this weekend and im getting rather excited (and restless now).
Im going to be attending Wonderwool which is held on the 9th and 10th April at the Royal Welsh Showground.


After this I will be back for 24hrs before having to go up to Leeds to see the consultant about my pelvis again, and then it's time to catch up with my family. I will be back from this on the 18th April.  So I guess it's time to say

Orders can still be placed through the website or with the office on (01271) 314812.

Wow what a busy week

Wow that really was a busy week with order and some exciting new hemp webbing and cord coming into stock. Hemp Fabrics have now been used in another 3 film productions which I will be able to say more about when they are launched in the next 12 months or so.

Fat Quarters, Quarter Meters and Off Cut Scrap Bags now avaliable

Today I have been sorting out the fabrics ready for easter shows and have decided to offer a selection of smaller fabric cuts to make it easier for customer to create there dream project with only the fabric they need, not extra. So on offer we now have :-

1kg Off Cut Scrap Bags - These are £6.50 per bag plus postage which would be £4 first class packet rate. They are unfortunatly too heavy to go by second class post. The off cuts vary from 5" squares to long thin strips, to bigger and also smaller angled off cuts. Common uses would be craft, especially quilting, stuffing and general sewing.

Fat Quarter Craft Packs - These are 3 x 20" by 22" (sometimes 24") pieces of hemp fabric. One piece is patterned, one piece in the natural colour, and another piece is bleached. These craft packs are £15 each and the postage is £1.85. Bamboo, Organic Cotton, Knitted Hemp and Hemp Blend Craft Packs will be avaliable shortly

Fat Quarters - We have a limited selection of fat quarters avaliable please email for more details and prices.

Quarter Meter Cuts - This is were a meter of the fabric is cut down into quarters and so the overall cost of the fabric is also cut down by 4. These are great for larger sampling pieces.

For more details on all of these options and there avaliability please email
Happy Crafting and Creating

Hemp Headband

I have finally finished my own hemp headback after the first one I made sold to a friend before it was even completed. These headbands are such a simple design but are really effective and easy to use.
What do you think of it?
