Happy Birthday to Us!

Can you believe it?!  We have been open ONE WHOLE YEAR!!  January 20th 2012 was the day The Sewing Shop opened its doors for the first time and the unsuspecting needlewomen of Lichfield.
And what a totally fantastic year it has been!  We've met so many lovely new friends, we've learned how to be buyers and book keepers and teachers as well as shop keepers. And as the following photos will show we've filled a rather empty-looking shop with loads... 
...and loads...

...and loads...


...of stock.  It's quite incredible to see just how sparsely furnished our shop was when we first began trading. 

A glimpse through the rainbow curtain at the back shows just how tidy and organised we were.

And now..?  Well now we are jam-packed full of fabrics and yarns and haberdashery of all kinds.  We have sewing machines and magazines.  We have buttons and bias binding.  We have pompoms and Poodles. 

And we couldn't have done it without you.  We'd just like to say a massive
to every single customer who has visited our shop, whether you've bought one single button or hundreds of metres of material.  It has been a fantastic year.  here's to many, many more.

Happy New Year

Wowsers!  It's 2013!  Let's see if this year I can manage to keep The Sewing Shop blog a little more regularly updated.  Short but sweet is going to be the way forward I think.  Little and often maybe...?  So let's start as we mean to go on.
To start the New Year we have a series of new events for your delectation. 

Knit and Natter is back!!! 

Bigger and better than ever.  OK maybe I'm getting a tad carried away but there is one BIG change in that the sessions will now be run in the evening and not the daytime. 

From 7.00 until 9.00pm to suit all those who work or have childcare difficulties in the daytime. 

The new session will be starting on Tuesday 29th January and continuing on the last Tuesday of every month thereafter.  We can't wait.
