Simply Adorable Handmade Pin Cushions

The Cloth Store is a supporter of the small.  It started as a market stall in Crawley selling fabrics before it became a 'two-brancher' in the high street.  It knows what it is like to start out, trying to make a path for yourself.  The launch is the website was very exciting as it meant opening up a whole new world of the internet and all the wonderful people on it.  I have found, for you, THE cutest handmade haberdashery, some of it I am starting to add to the site.  The latest are these brilliant handmade pin cushions, inspired by the flowers we see in our gardens every day.

Summer Loveliness: Liberty Print Bias Bindings

Lots of things make me go "OOOoooooooo!" and these are certainly up there at number one!  Now in our two high street shops and online are these delicious Liberty Print bias bindings.

They are £1.90 per metre and definitely deserve to be used for more than just dressmaking. Use as decorative ribboning, embellishing and tying up gifts, loops and tags, you could even tie them in your hair!  Too pretty to resist!

It's holiday season and we are all thinking about relaxing and taking a break from our daily routines, so why not try something new?
Needle felting is the interlocking and compacting of wool fibres by using specially designed pointed and barbed needles.

One of our newest designers is Beth Connors of Fibre Space.  She designs and produces these wonderful felt brooch kits. Each one contains everything you need to make three lovely flower brooches.

All the bits come packaged in a box made from recycled card and, at £10.00 each, and available in five colours combinations, they make perfect gifts too.

Here they are!  Linky Dink Felted Brooch Kits
