We are open!!

We opened our doors yesterday morning at 9:30 and I drew breath just before 4!! Well more like 5 actually as I had to do my online orders before I went home!!
I couldn't have asked for a better response to my shop - so many positive comments, and I lost count of how many times people told me that this was just what Lowestoft had been waiting for.
Thank You so much if you came to support us in person , and for all the virtual support I received both here and on facebook.

We were in the paper on Friday...the write up was excellent, wasn't keen on them using a pic of me - but seen worse!

There was a lot of enthusiasm for the workshops and classes I am planning, so I will pull my finger out and develop a programme as soon as I can.

I am off to enjoy my time off before we reopen on Tuesday. Its our 2nd wedding anniversary today, we can't go out - we feel like all our babysitting credits have been used and don't want to ask anyone!! And I am shattered!!
You can find Patch and me at:    
9 Bevan Street
NR32 2AA
Telephone 01502 588778

We are open Tuesday to Saturday 9.30 to 3.30

We still have a large range of our fabrics on the website - and will be adding the oilcloths and the new dena designs and riley blake fabrics just delivered in the next week.
