Contact cards

A day spent making my contact cards with scraps of fabric and buttons. Using my trusty Bernina minimatic sewing machine. It maybe over 30 years old but it still sews like a dream
Sewing Tip: For a professional finish on all your sewing projects always make sure your needle is in the fabric When turning a right angle

Here’s an example of a finished card


Vintage Fabric Stash

My world revolves around my huge stash of fabric which occupies my garage and takes over my home. I do not restrict myself to one era and love retro fabric, classic sanderson prints, Liberty designs, conversational prints, Laura Ashley etc. From small scraps for patchwork to huge rolls for curtains and blinds – they all find a home in my cupboards and drawers ready for a project or a customers request.
This weeks best sellers on eBay are this classic 1950s cotton leaf print

And these vintage Scottish and welsh wool tweed skirt lengths

I have more of the leaf print in stock if required.
