Morning everyone, when we left the Excel exhibition centre back in November we thought today was a long, long way off.
But today has arrived, and it's the start of our spring exhibition season. Tony and I leave on this evenings boat for France. We have a long drive tomorrow, all the way to Metz, up on the German boarder. We spend a week in Metz and then move down to Paris for l'Aiguille en fete.
We have created lots of new goodies for our French customers, new ribbons (not al11 new mini kits, our kit spinner is looking really good. We have a brand new unit containing lace, French lace!
Finally we have our new fabric panels for ribbon embroidery.
All our stock of these panels will be loaded into the lorry today. They will be deactivated from the website.
So if you want one...........order them now!
I started working on the Sea View print yesterday, just adding a few roses.
Our silk ribbon is a dream to work with and glides through the 100% cotton of the panels.
Some of you may have noticed that I have been having a slight problem with my formatting of the posts this weekend. I decided to try posting to the blog using a different platform, so I could use my iPad. I am sure I will get used to it. One major difference- you will NOT receive an email to tell you there is a new post. So just pop on and have a look every now and again. I am hoping I will be able share the enjoyment of the next two weeks!
Have fun while we are away, wish us luck.
