NEW.. Newer… Newest…….

New Webhost .. The site has now migrated to secure webhosting so you may need to clear the cache of the old site. IT Support (hubby and son) instructs me to Hold Ctrl down then touch F5 so both are held down at the same time. That refreshes the browser. It will now show as a Https:// which they tell me is a secure site.

I have also added some new colours into stock. This Cool Grey 9 has been available in 1000m spools now also stocked in 5000m spools

Mulberry is now being stocked in 1000m spools

Lilac also being stocked in 1000m spools

We are moving house …….

Well it is time to move house, so you may find it hard to go shopping until it is done.

The System Monkeys are working extremely hard in the back ground to get us set up in the new server, so please be patient while they are at work.

Hopefully by tomorrow morning, before you get up, it will be done.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this necessary change has caused you

My Face Mask Pattern

Since I cannot post a PDF to my Facebook or Instagram pages I thought I would put it here, so that my family and friends could use it also.

This is a 4 layer mask with an opening for a filter product, should you choose to use one. Research says that using a higher thread count fabric is better, batik fabrics work well, silk is possibly good for the inner layers as softer on the skin too.

The size for “longer/wider” faced people could be adjusted by extended the centre section of the pattern both horizontally and vertically. Measure from the tip of your nose to the base of your chin, this pater will work for those less than 3″.

Covered nose wire, helps to keep the mask gaps free over the nose. Using 1″ strips cut from around a t-shirt make a soft tie for around the head. I use a loop around my neck and a tie at the top of the head. OR rather than a tie I thread the two ends of the tie through a bead and knot, then use the bead as a movable tightener.

Sadly That time has come…..

Despite the best of intentions of ordering in mid March, those orders are somewhere between New York and Busy Quilting. Tracking of a parcel when it is on route to its destination is disheartening. Which means that sadly, some stock will no longer be appearing on the website….. That part of our current situation I have no control over. So that you do not get your hopes up of backordering, I am hiding them from stock until I have them physically back on the shelf.
