Thursday 1st October 2020
Hello Everyone, it’s officially October! And I’ve got plenty of news for you all – including a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT about one of our future products.
But first, last week I celebrated the first day of Autumn in style by releasing Lewis & Irene’s ‘The Orchard’ Collection on our website, brand new for Autumn 2020. I mentioned in last month’s blog that this was one of those collections that I was really looking forward to stocking (as I absolutely love Autumn), and it hasn’t disappointed. My favourite thing about this collection is the shades of green in the fabrics – It was a nice surprise to see that the shade of green in the fabrics had more of a warm ‘ochre’ tone, which definitely adds to the Autumnal vibe of the collection.
As a photographer myself, I understand that photos of quilting fabrics need to accurately show off the colours (as if you were looking at them in the flesh) and at Sew-Drops, that is exactly what we do. Not just with quilting fabrics, but with all the products we stock. There are a few photographs of these fabrics here on our website for you to take a look at, but if you would like to see more, then please check out our recent posts on Facebook and Instagram.
Although Autumn has only just begun, it also means that Christmas is coming. With less than 100 days until Ol’ Saint Nick comes to visit (approx. 12 weeks), now is the time to start planning and buying Christmas gifts for family and friends. At Sew-Drops, we’ve got plenty to offer this year; including Quilting Fabrics, Felt Craft Kits by Corinne Lapierre, Books & Patterns from well-known brands such as Art to Heart, Sewing Patterns by Mrs. H & Liberty Fabrics – plus our Handmade Gifts (all made by myself using some of the fabrics we’re stocking) ranging from Cosmetic Bags, Christmas Stockings, Handbags, Heart Decorations, etc.
Along with all these wonderful gift ideas, we’re very proud to be stockists of SEAMS Beauty Couturiers Hand Cream, a UK-based brand which you’ll be happy to know do not test on animals. Recently we’ve had a customer contact us who bought this hand cream and she’s very kindly given me permission to include her feedback in this blog:-
“Although a little bit more expensive than some hand creams out there, I only had to use a tiny amount to get great results. It smells lovely (not overpowering) and soaks into my hands almost immediately, so it didn’t leave any residue on my hands. After only a few short weeks of using, I’ve noticed a softness to my hands and a return of elasticity to my skin. Overall a fantastic hand cream – definitely recommend.”
Right, I think I’ve kept you all waiting long enough – it’s time to reveal my SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! A NEW brand/product will be coming to Sew-Drops in the next few weeks, and if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’ll give you one final clue. If you haven’t spotted it already, there is a massive, and I mean MASSIVE, hint in the title of this month’s blog…
That’s right, we are finally going to be stocking quilting thread(s), and not just any thread, Sew-Drops will be official stockists of Mettler! One of the biggest sewing brands out there and famous for their amazing sewing and quilting threads. Over the last few months, I’ve received many messages from you all asking me if we could start selling sewing threads to go with our fabric collections, so I am thrilled to be able to say now that we will be.
Mettler threads will be arriving on our website throughout October 2020!
Finally, we will be expecting the arrival of ‘Purrfect Petals’ by Lewis & Irene between the end of October and mid-November 2020. We’ll know more in the next few weeks, so I’ll keep you all posted.
Well that’s all for our October blog, thank you all so much for reading. I’m really looking forward to our November Blog, featuring more updates on the latest news and products arriving at Sew-Drops!
