Product of the week

Hello

Every week we are going to have a feature product. This week the feature product is 'Soak'. Soak is ideal for washing your quilts because it has no soap in and requires no rinsing! It is very delicate on the fabric and won't cause any damage. You can also use it to wash wool.


Soak has been an absolute hit with knitters (and wearers of knitted things), but it has also drawn a following of crafters (like quilters, cross-stitchers and weavers) as well as people who hand-wash their clothes. This gentle, fiber-friendly cleanser, formulated for today's sophisticated sensibilities.

How to use:

For hand-washing, pour 1 teaspoon into one gallon of cool water. Soak item for 15 minutes then gently squeeze out water. No need to rinse. Lay knit items flat to dry. Wash sets (like lingerie) together. Some colour may bleed into the water - don?t worry; this won't harm your garment.

Test fabric for colour-fastness before washing.

Soak is also ideal for machine washing- including High Efficiency Machines. Use the delicate cycle and measure Soak based on your machine's instructions. You can either use or skip the rinse cycle, depending on what you are washing. Measure Soak by individual machine guidelines.
Our general rule is one capful (or squeeze) on the 14oz bottle or two capfuls on the 4oz bottle for a gallon (sink full) of water. Make sure there's enough room for water to move around and cover the garment while it Soaks.

No rinse means that the product is a low-suds liquid. When you soak your items, the dirt and detergent comes out in the water and what is left in the item evaporates. When you squeeze out the water, you are left with a hint of fragrance that dissipates over time. You can rinse if you want. Rinsing does not affect how Soak cleans. It just removes the fragrance.

No rinse means less agitation for fibers. It is easier on garments and makes them last longer. It also uses less water which is good for the planet.



We have different sizes available
1 use 6ml sachet £1.39
130ml £10.99
425ml £16.99.

Dressmaking

Hello

Have you or anyone you know ever fancied dressmaking?

Scan'N'Cut Days

Hello,

Our UK exclusives of the Brother Scan'N'Cut were a huge success on Thursday & Friday! John Bloodworth introduced the Scan'N'Cut and Melanie Haigh showed everyone how to get the most of Scan'N'Cut.

Everyone who came said they thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot about theScan'N'Cut and how to use it along with their embroidery machines.

We also raised a lot of money for Mind Charity as part of John Bloodworths 'All Counties Craft Challenge'.

We are very proud to be the first place in the UK to hold a Masterclass for the new Scan'N'Cut.

A big thank you to everyone who came along to the event.

There are photos on our Facebook page.
