Victorian Sewing Kit

Soft and feminine, these delicately striped mending kits come in two designs & feature floral padded lids.

The smaller gift box-shaped kit opens flat for easy use and includes pins and needles, tape measure, mending thread and scissors.  The larger kit is also filled with haberdashery including a pin wheelie, scissors, seam ripper, needle threader, pin cushion and lots more, all set out in individual compartments.  The lid has a gathered lining pocket for extra storage.

These sewing kits are so pretty they can be left out on a table, so no more rummaging for emergency mending supplies.

You have got to love these little containers for trinkets,

jewellery or even party favours!

There are 4 slices in the Swiss Roll, each a soft, decorated

fabric box with lid, whilst every Cupcake box is set into its own polka-dotted pink patty case and the ‘fondant’ lid is decorated with fabric accessories.

These sweet little boxes would be perfect for holding those thank you surprises to give to family or friends – yummmm.

Ever wanted to create a piece of art with just your fabric stash, different stitches and some unusual techniques?  Well, students in Michelle Higgins’ classes in Erina are loving her embellished colour wash art quilt called “Defying Gravity”.

One of the students summed it up with, “WOW!!!  What fun it is to work ‘outside the box’ and do something completely different from what I am used to doing.”

If you sign up for a class you’ll be having fun making quilts too.

The kids are sewing up a storm in Erina.  They attend on Thursday nights and have already completed a sewing bag, a pencil case and pyjamas.  Next week their project will be a surprise gift for Mothers Day and after that they start on a lap quilt. Only 8 years and twelve years old – how’s that!  Just goes to show how clever your kids can be.

… and they get to take home their Brother NS10 sewing machines at the end of the 10 week course – for keeps!
