We've had so many new things arrive for you this week I don't know where to start! Three new shades of Bergere Ideal (don't forget the events tomorrow night or Friday morning) - very Autumnal and very gorgeous. We have new Michael Miller fabrics at only £10 per metre, Mouseloft Christmas and mini cross stitch kits, Sewline marking pencils, Clover quilting pencils, YLI invisible thread (the best there is in our opinion) and three different quilting/appliqué templates. So much loveliness and that's just the staff!! A reminder that the Bergere sale ends this week and the Drops merino sale next week. Talking of next week (October already, can you believe it?) we'll be starting a month of Pink events to support Breast Cancer Care, our chosen charity. More information about these very soon. Meanwhile do pop in to check out the newbies or give us a call to order by post - see you soon!
From today (24th September) until 22nd October all the Simplicity patterns in the current pattern book are half price - an amazing reduction! If you want us to order a pattern for you we can post it out to you, usually within about 8 days, depending on the day you order. Give us a call to place your order on 01287 610207.
Jenny's coming back! Two more 'Learn to Crochet' workshops - flowers and granny squares this time. Only 10 places on each so get yours booked asap! You can ring us, Facebook message us or book through the workshops page on here...
Well where did that summer go? Perhaps it's yet to happen and this month is going to be tropical! Anyway, regardless of the weather we've lots going on here at Leven Crafts this month. The Bergere yarn sale will continue for another three week or so to give those of you who haven't been knitting or crocheting over the summer a chance to stock up with supplies. On 7th September the Drops Merino Mania sale starts with 25% off our two Merino yarns - Extra fine Merino and Baby Merino. This offer is on until 7th October so plenty of time to choose your favourite shades.
Don't forget we've two Bergere de France promotional events on at the end of the month on Thursday 29th (7 p.m.)and Friday 30th (10.30 a.m.) where we will be showcasing the new Autumn/Winter yarns and giving away for free this season's mega-pattern book which normally sells for £12. Tickets are strictly limited to 20 per event due to space and you'll get your ticket cost (£5) refunded on any spend over £25. They are already selling so give us a call to reserve yours as soon as you can.
We've new Makower fabrics arriving this month from the Heartwood range which are just delicious. Here's a few pictures to give you a sneak peep...
Oh and I nearly forgot the Makower Haberdashery fabrics!
From DMC we have the Top This kits arriving very soon. They consist of a pre-made character pompom and materials to knit a simple beanie hat to attach it to. We think these are going to be very popular for Christmas presents and stocks will be limited so do pop in and have a look.
There are still a couple of spaces on the Monday afternoon dressmaking class which starts on 12th for 4 weeks (to continue if numbers allow) if anyone is thinking of having a go. Beginners are very welcome and we have machines to use if you haven't got one. Ring to book a place or book on here via the workshops page. You can order Simplicity patterns from us and we have a range of dressmaking fabrics available too.
We also have a couple of spaces on the Tuesday morning, 7 week beginners' Patchwork and Quilting course, starting on 13th. If you've always wanted to learn how to do patchwork and quilting then this is the course for you. It costs £70 for the 7 weeks plus materials and you'll be taught all you need to know to make a lap quilt by the end of the course.
We mentioned in the last newsletter that we have a social knitting group that meets on the first Friday of every month and new members would be very welcome. We have some ladies in this group who would be happy to teach anyone how to knit if you'd like to learn, so why not come along?
We're also hoping to be able to offer beginners' crochet lessons very soon so keep checking back with us if this is something you're interested in.
As always, it would be great to see you in the shop and if you live too far away we are very willing to post out supplies to you. We try to put as much as we can onto here but quite often we simply run out of time! If there's something you think we might have give us a call to check and we'll get it to you if we have it.
See you soon!
