The 'Design your own' sections are now open again and all the new Cottons have been added to the Fabric options :-)
The Design your own sections will remain closed until later this month (January)
This is so I can make a few items for the Website first - as once custom orders start being placed I usually don't have any spare time to make any Ready made items and I won't make them while there are outstanding orders as already paid for orders will always take precedence.
I have a selection of smaller pieces of fabric that are leftover from previous Design your own fabrics that I will be using (once there is only a small piece left I remove them from the fabric options as there often isn't enough to make certain items) so there may be a brief return of some of your old favourites in among them :-)
There are also several cottons that I'll be adding to the fabrics page ready for when the DYO reopens( once I get them Photographed) and they are all ones that I haven't had before :-)
Have a Happy New Year
Unfortunately I have had to make the decision to close the 'Design your own' section a little earlier than I had expected as I have got a large number of orders to complete and so wouldn't be able to guarantee that any new orders that were placed would be finished in time for them to be delivered before Christmas.
It's unlikely that it will be reopening until early January as both my poor overworked Sewing machine and I like to take a sewing break over Christmas,If I do have some spare time after all existing orders are finished I will use it to make some Ready made items for the Website.
I've had to temporarily close the 'Design your own' section for a short while to give me a chance to catch up on all the existing orders that have been placed.
It's been very busy lately,which isn't surprising given how less than pleasant the weather has been this past few weeks, and while I like to try and get 'DYO' orders made within 14 days maximum of being placed it's now running at about 3 weeks - which is too long in my opinion and I really don't like making you all wait so long - so I'll keep the 'DYO' closed for a short while until I can get some of the backlog cleared and the wait down to a much shorter time.
Sorry for any inconvenience
I have some new fabrics on order that should be here in the next few days - there's 6 new cottons/Polycottons plus the return of the Bunnies cotton and baby blue fleece.
There's also a new brightly coloured checked fleece that's been added just today
The New cottons are here and are now available on all the Design your own options
There's a real mix of colours and styles,so should be something for everyone :-)
Here's a selection of them:
You'll probably have noticed that there's a lot less variety of cottons available in the 'Design your own' options at the moment,the good news is there will be a load of new ones in at the end of February - They will include the return of some old favourites who haven't been available for a while,plus a selection of brand new ones that we've never had before :-)
There should be a selection of Ready made items going onto the website over the next few days (some have already been added) as I am trying to use up all the smaller pieces of fabric (those that aren't available as DYO options as there isn't enough of them left) to make room for the new ones :-)
There's a mix of different colours and styles,and many will be the last ones available as they are fabrics I can no longer get more of from the suppliers :-(
So keep an eye out and you might spot a long lost favourite in there somewhere!
Sadly as it has taken me longer than I had hoped to finish up the Custom orders that I had the time has run out to get the 'Design Your Own' reopened before Christmas so to solve any issues with orders not being finished or arriving before Christmas - not to mention letting me (and my Sewing machine!) have a short break :-) - it will now be closed for the Holidays until the 6th January.I will be using any spare time I do have to try and get some ready made items back on the site though as it has been rather neglected over the past few weeks while I concentrated on custom orders.As usual the rest of the Website will remain open right throughout the Holidays and any orders placed during this time will be posted as and when the Post Office/Couriers are open,so delays will be quite likely.
Very sorry everyone but I've had to close the Design your own for a little while - a huge influx of orders has meant I now have a sizable waiting list and so I really need to get some of them cleared before I can take any more.Not only because I don't like to keep you waiting too long for your orders but I will need to take a fabric stock take after they have all been cut out so I know exactly whats left available as several fabrics are very close to being out of stock at this time.I will re open it as soon as possible - Sorry for the inconvenience :-(
Firstly,my apologies for the almost complete lack of any Ready made items available,I think this is the emptiest it's ever been!It has got really busy here and completing all your 'Design your Own' orders has meant so there's just been no time for me to make any new Ready made ones -Sorry!If you would like to order any Festive themed items then please could you order them as soon as possible so you don't miss out on your fabric choice and while there's plenty of time to get them made and delivered.I've already had to take 2 of the festive cottons (Scandinavian and Snowflakes) off the 'Design your own' option as there was only a tiny piece of each of those left now.Thank you :-)
