During this dreadful pandemic we have all had our lives affected in different ways. It's been incredible watching how people adapt and diversify. For some peope it meant a total rethink of how they run their busineses.  For producers of handmade items that could no longer run their shops or market stalls it meant moving online. Some had lost their jobs and were starting from scratch. We started getting orders from makers trying to produce more variety of products in greater quantities.
Face masks were being produced at a rate of knots. Makers were sharing designs and buying our fabrics to produce colourful masks for adults and children. Now that mask wearing has become the norm for most of us, people who perhaps hadn't plugged in their sewing machine for a few years were busy stitching away, supplying family and friends with masks to match outfits. Homemade masks have cut down on the amount of one use masks being thrown away, this has to be a vey good thing.
Many of us took on completely new skills during lockdown. Uphostery fabrics were very popular as people decided that if they couldn't go to a shop to buy new they would have a go at revamping the old.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has ordered from our online fabric shop. You have helped this independent family business to survive and prosper.
Wishing you all a better 2021 in every way.
