Happy Easter Dear Fellow Thread Heads!

happy easter from thread head fabrics

Hello everyone!  We wanted to tell you that we sincerely hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend this Easter and if you do celebrate the holiday, that it is one you will cherish.

We will be taking a few days off to enjoy some family time.  So please know that any orders placed between 5pm on Wednesday 12 April 2017 and 5pm on Monday 17 April 2017 will be posted first thing on Tuesday, 18 April.

You can still feel free to place your orders over the bank holiday weekend if you are up for a bit of online fabric and sewing pattern shopping!

I would like to mention that the gorgeous little bunny in the pic for this blog post was made by one of the members of a craft group I run here in Liverpool for adults with learning difficulties and/or mental health issues.  The bunny is really tiny!!  Only about 2.5 inches tall!  The woman who made it had never sewn prior to joining the group in January other than to re-attach buttons to her school uniform after her Nan showed her the basics of using a needle and thread.  Thirty-five years later, she is fast becoming a keen embroiderer and learning lots of new hand stitching techniques!  I’m so proud of her and am really thrilled to be watching her gain confidence with each sewing project!

Again, Happy Easter!

And, of course, happy sewing!
