Here we have the latest creation by one customer who used the Merchant & Mills 'Top' pattern with Polar Grey laundered Linen to produce an easy to wear casual look; lovely!

The linen is currently only available in 'Goodnight' (navy), 'Calamine' (dusky pink) and 'Oxblood' (rich brown) and stocks are low so if you were planning a cool linen summer dress, hurry along before they're gone.

Hi Everyone.
Just in case you were wondering where I've been, I thought I'd let you know that I'm back from a short holiday tomorrow. So if you've been bursting to come and tell me that you'd like to take on the business, tomorrow is your chance.

P.S I will be closed on Saturday 24th.

Attention Fabric Aficionados!

It is one year today that I have been at the helm of Herringbone and it has been wonderful to meet all you lovely people who have browsed, shopped and shared philosophical musings with me. I have enjoyed my year and have learnt many things, particularly about myself.

I now know that I must return to what I consider to be my vocation, teaching. Therefore, Herringbone is up for sale!
If you've ever fancied owning your own business then here is your chance. Get in touch if you'd like to chat about it.
Thank you everyone for your support, Nikki.

The results of the TEXTILE CHALLENGE are in!
First place in the adult section went to Carolyn with her beautiful 'Paddington Bear'. Her bear has removable clothing and his own satchel. It is expertly sewn with great attention to detail; just lovely. Well done.

Second place went to Katie with her 'purrfect' cat. This pattern matched feline comes with a removable skirt (and tail!) Well done.

First place in the youth section went to Evie with her delightful wall hanging. Evie decided to illustrate details from the story and created a wonderful piece. Not only does it exhibit sewing & creative skills but she also dyed all her fabric with food colouring so her work smells good too! Congratulations.

Second place went to Alisha with her button-eyed cuddly. Alisha even gave her creation a toy of it's own (the fluffy pompom). Congratulation.

A big thank you to all who entered and if you feel you've missed out, look out for future competitions and remember, you've got to be in it to win it.

Here we have a lovely customer wearing her new Merchant & Mills trapeze dress in midnight linen. She confided in me (and I know she won't mind you all knowing) that she had the pattern for some time before she finally got up the courage to make it. Now, there should be no stopping her with this kind of success! Well done. ...

Finished..............
I'll be honest and tell you that they are a little big on the waist but with a belt they'll be fine. I found the pattern quite straightforward and easy to follow but would suggest that some experience is needed.
For my next project I'll have to think of something else I haven't done before and keep up the challenge.

Progressing well with the trousers. Made a mistake that I will now not repeat.....put the patch pockets on the back BEFORE doing the darts agh. I'm keeping them that way though to remind me!
More pictures tomorrow.

I enjoy sewing. No surprise perhaps but I don't consider myself a seamstress. It just seems to me that if you have a pattern and instructions, you just do as it says. Okay, maybe you will make mistakes but you'll know what you've done wrong and correct it- that's learning. Having this philosophy I am always trying to inspire customers to have a go. So, feeling I too should challenge myself, I have begun my first EVER, pair of trousers!
The 'Portia' pattern by Sew me Something is my choice as it gives experience in patch pockets, belt loops, side pockets & a zip. I've chosen Merchant & Mills 'Goodnight' linen (which is much darker than the picture shows and have cut out all 9 pattern pieces.
Wish me luck & I'll keep you posted.
