Rudy the Reindeer

This is "Rudy" the Reindeer, a Christmas creation from Melly & Me.

I've helped to make about ten of these cute critters, with a group of local school girls who have been learning to sew with me during the last few weeks.

We will have more workshops for kids during the school holidays. You can view our class list at www.threadneedle.com.au

Best wishes for Christmas to all our customers ... I look forward to seeing you again in the new year!

Sweet Life Bags by Amy Butler

Amy Butler has released a fabulous range of bags designed with crafters in mind.

The bags are constructed using mid-weight fabrics from Rowan & feature Amy Butler's "August Fields" fabric designs. The bags are 100% cotton lined with co-ordinating prints.

They have lots of pockets & tool channels, strong & long straps for carrying comfort, expandable side panels & bag bottoms.

I only have two of these gorgeous bags available in-store (a third vanished into my Christmas stocking!)

The bag on the left below is the "Dew Drop Sling" (Forest/Seafoam) & on the right is the "Diana Sling" (Orange/Coral).

These bags retail for $198.50 & $155.50 respectively (plus postage).
