Well the wait is over, the website is now live! We’ve got lots of lovely fabric, supplies and ready to make kits to browse and purchase, go and have a look!
So after months of teasing and sneak previews, I can now announce that the Make and Do Provisions website will be launched on the 14th November.
For those of you that are local, we are holding a launch event at the ChrisDingle Craft Fair, held at Dingle Farm in Appleton.
We will have a selection of items that are on the website which will be available to purchase on the night. If you can’t make it on the 14th, don’t worry as we will be there on the 15th too!
To tempt you further, we will have a selection of bag making kits, designed by Make and Do provisions, as well as fabric and haberdashery items. If you fancy coming along, tickets are £3.50 and can be purchased from The Make and Do Studio. It will be a perfect opportunity to stock up on some stocking fillers and browse the other stalls, all whist enjoying a glass of mulled wine!
For those who can’t make it to the launch night, all our products will be available to buy online also, so you won’t be missing out!
To keep up to date which what’s happening with Make and Do Provisions, you can now follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest! If that’s not enough we’ve also got a blog where you can keep up to date with new products and announcements.
Look forward to seeing you at the launch night on the 14th!
A while back I mentioned about a new venture I’ve been involved in, well I thought now is the time to share a little more of what’s going on. Read the rest of this entry
After revamping my charity shop cantilever sewing box a few weeks ago
I decided I needed to put it to good use. Now I’m not sure if it’s just me, but any small bit of fabric I have to keep, just in case! This has left me with a mound of off cuts perfect for appliqué projects. The separate compartments of the box were ideal to separate the different colours. So I spent a happy 15 minutes sorting into colour coordinated piles!
My scraps are now much easier to find and I can now see what colours I can use for my project!
So another week and more bags! I have been busy making 2 more of the same style as I showed you last week.
After joining Twitter 3 weeks ago and hoping to expand into the world of sewing I was delighted to find a tweet from Reba Collins asking for someone to test her Molly Handbag pattern. I eagerly replied and now have the fab job of exploring her pattern! I will blog how I get on along the way and will ultimately give Reba some feedback on how her pattern works.
The first and most enjoyable task is to choose some suitable fabric. I have many designers who I love and I am torn between several different designs. The handbag pattern involves either one colour exterior or a multi colour exterior – I have chosen to do the latter, but finding coordinating fabric will be a challenge! So while I decide please leave me a comment on what your favourite fabric is. I think I will probably go for something by Amy Butler but would love to branch away from the common designers so your input on some more unusual designs would be great!
Off now to continue my fabric search – life can be so hard!
