Our Mission
Our aim is to create a fuss-free, secure and delightful environment for you to shop for ‘sweet n chic’
haberdashery and fabrics at the comfort of your home.
Sewing is making a massive comeback - so it's time to seriously start thinking about taking
this ‘granny’s old-time favourite’. Feeling tired of the same thing everyone else gets from the high-
street? Whether it’s sewing on some funky buttons or adding a unique appliqué to the cashmere scarf
that you never wear, there is something for everyone to try out. Be a true fashionista by transforming
your personal wardrobe. But before you even think about starting to sew, be sure to equip yourself
with our latest prints and trimmings.

A place to share delicious crafty inspirations.

Sewing is fun, creative, and it is easy! You can explore the infinite possibilities in sewing by unfolding your creativity. Don’t get intimidated by your friend’s fancy projects! We have a range of simple projects to inspire you and get you started on making something nice for yourself. Whether you are complete beginner or a sewing miracle we believe we have something just for you.

We have just made some really sweet scalloped bunting with dainty rose quilt binding and 4 different fat quarters fabrics in matching girly colours. It doesn't cost much to make at all! One fat quarter can be made into 16 scallops! Every meter of the bunting, it consists of approximately 10 scallops. Taking into account of the quilt binding, it costs around £2.80 to make a whole meter of scalloped bunting!! How Lovely!
