CHSI Stitches 2019 ~ I won an award! from Charm About You


Each year I look forward to the CHSI Stitches event - a UK trade show packed with all things fabric, crafts, sewing and quilting. It's a great opportunity to ogle at new launches, discover different products and brands and meet up with - or indeed meet new - people in the industry. Here's a round up of the day (I went on Sunday), the things I loved, new products I spotted and the British Craft Awards evening!

How brilliant are these stickers?!

Part of the latest Signs of the Sewdiac subscription box from Sew Crafty, which has now ended but you can still snap up some of the goodies from the range in Samantha's Etsy shop. I'm not a knitter but still appreciate the design of this month's box 'The Knitting'.

sew stash sew from Charm About You

Obviously I am slightly obsessed with fabric. There are so many lovely prints/patterns/colours available and I'm sharing some new collections with you today, along with an older find I'm treasuring and a few other goodies!

This is my kind of Christmas fabric, a collection of cute graphic prints, Noel by Swaying Lily for Cloud9 Fabrics. It is festive novelty in the best way.

The colours of this next collection really appeal to me, I really like modern brown prints (hard to find!) and when they're mixed with pink that's even better!

Signs of the Sewdiac from Charm About You

the thimble graphic print

I am incredibly fortunate to have worked with and met some wonderful creatives, many of whom have become true friends. One such talent is Samantha Claridge, owner of Sew Crafty. Sammy has incredible taste, her designs are always so beautiful and she inspires me with every make and photo - her new instagram feed showcases this perfectly!

When Sammy told me she was releasing a new line of products with a subscription box club I got very excited. And then when she kindly sent me January's box I squealed, gasped and left her a rambling voicemail through tears of joy ...

Festive Fall Tote Bag Tutorial - Sew Crafty from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hey there sewing friends, 

What have you been sewing up lately?  November is one of my favorite months out of the year because  the weather is becoming cooler and hot chocolate becomes my drink of choice. We tend to do a lot of cooking in the month of November with Thanksgiving gatherings which means more time at the grocery store or local farmers market finding yummy things to make for family and friends. Which is why I thought making a Festive Fall Tote Bag Tutorial would be super fun and practical.  Make as many as you need and keep them ...
