The Great British Sewing Bee is making a come-back
We were thrilled when Love Productions got in touch to say they are planning a new series of The Great British Sewing Bee, and asked us to help spread the word.
They are looking for applications from talented amateurs who love to sew. Hurry, because the closing date for entries is midnight on 28th May 2018.
For more information or to apply, please go to: www.applyforsewingbee.co.uk . We're not sure when the series will air, but we're really looking forward to its return.
At last we've got a spring in our step
Buds are bursting, birds are shouting out and trees are blossoming in abundance. It's time to celebrate with joyful colours and vibrant patterns.
Sighing for Spring
The latest visit from 'the beast from the east' is subsiding and the snowdrifts are collapsing in on themselves. We're longing for Spring to finally arrive so that we can shed our winter coats and step into something different.
We've added a really useful Search Function to our website. It will be especially helpful for customers looking for buttons recommended by Rowan Yarns. Just type in the reference number on their knitting pattern and you should be taken straight to the designated button. Try it out for other search tasks too and let us know what you think.
Passementerie and trimmings rich in colour and texture
The breadth and quality of our trimmings range is hard to beat. We have a glorious collection that extends right through from fine lace to passementerie for soft furnishings. With the exception of one or two, all are sourced in France, Italy or Spain. So if you've only been acquainted with our buttons up to now, why not take a couple of minutes to look at our braids and trimmings too.
Casual weekend buttons borrowed from nature herself
if you're going for a walk in the country this weekend, then cosy casuals fastened with our horn, leather and wooden buttons hit just the right note.
