September Special Offer – huge discounts on all waddings

Wow – what a whirlwind of a month August turned out to be for me! I don’t think my feet touched the ground, but I am not complaining as we’ve had some lovely family times.

No sooner were we home than we drove to collect my eldest granddaughter to stay for a few days. Olivia was able to join in with one of the Quick Sew sewing classes on Thursday morning at the shop, and then in the afternoon made herself a pair of denim shorts!

Even though she is only just a teenager, she has shot up in height and is already taller than me, so she was certainly in need of new shorts!
