A feast for the senses!
October has been all about India; colour, vibrancy, festivals, fantastic people and many a selfie, it truly was a feast for the senses! See below for embroidery pictures of this fabulous textile trip and to catch up on my adventures; it's back down to earth now though and I do actually enjoy kicking through the fallen leaves, even if it is getting a little chilly! This is a great time to get settled into a new project and I have lots of new ideas so keep watching this space...

The shop is picking up pace for the coming Christmas period, so get in now for all of your embroidery goodies from fabrics to threads, to equipment to kits. We ship worldwide, dispatch the same day in most cases and it's free delivery for all UK orders over £40. There may be some one off bargain gold thread packs coming to you in the next week or so to so make sure you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to get news of when they are available (click on the links above)! These go very quickly so don't miss out...

Textile Tour of Gujarat 2018
New in the shop this month
We have some new threads in! The Lana (also known as Burmilana) thread range is very popular and it just so happens that some new colours are available so we are stocking up on these! Get these fabulous autumn colours now:

We also have some more packs of Perle threads. These are brand new threads but once they are gone there won't be any more!

As befitting a trip to India, we also have some fabulous new shisha mirrors in stock, so now the nights are closing in why brighten them with some shine? You will struggle to get these sizes and shapes anywhere else!

Textile Treasures of Gujarat 2018
with Colouricious Holidays
Marble inlaid floor of the new Swarmi Narayan temple in Bhuj
Gujarat really is the jewel state of India; I've travelled to India before many years ago but never to this region and I was in awe of the textiles we saw but more so of the people making them. From weavers, to block printers, to tie dying to intricate embroidery; this western most state has it all. We were lucky enough to learn from the artisans themselves, taking part in several workshops including block printing, tie dying, and batik but we also saw much of the incredible state of Gujarat and were welcomed by it's people everywhere we went. Here are some of the textile highlights!
