Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Grandma Ellen's Sewing Box - Vintage Kits

They are now up in Etsy and I am so pleased with them.... Already one has been sold - well it didn't even get up there actually..... it was ordered off the pic in the previous post!

Here are the better pics and an explanation.... I do hope you enjy them - Grandma Ellen's Sewing Box - Vintage Scrapbooking Kits

This lovely vintage kit takes you back down memory lane when things were a little slower and women like my Great Grandma Ellen spent time sewing for herself and her family.

This kit is in memory of my Great Grandma Ellen who, before she married my Great Grandfather, was a tailoress for Queen Victoria (probably my family's one claim to any sort of fame!)

This kit contains a wonderful collection of tea and hand dyed lace and hand crafted flowers of broidery anglaise lace, a hand crafted doiley, hat pins, buttons and printed button cards and keys from that era.

All you need to add is your cardstock, photos and your title and journalling - how easy is that!! Perhaps a little lace? Perhaps glimmermist the background? The layout can be as simple or as complex as you wish.....

Many of the items are vintage and are listed below with a *

So what does this vintage kit contain?

1 x Hand crafted and dyed doileys*
1 x 35cm piece of tea dyed broidery anglaise lace
2 x Hand crafted flowers tea dyed and then glimmermisted with handcrafted vintage doileys as their centres*
2 x vintage buttons a pink palain button and a gorgeous mother of pearl button*
1 x hand dyed sprinke flower*/shape*
2 x hancrafted hat pins (by me) in beautiful muted tones
4 x prints of carded buttons* and an advertisement*
1 x print of brass keys*
1 x brass 'sewing scissors' brass charm
1 x backing sheet

So your next heritage layout is almost done - all you need it is the photo!! This would also look fabulous as a feminine layout of any aged lady or girl...... even that lovely photo of you as a baby you always meant to scrap but never got around to it!

I am off to a retreat Thursday with a few packages of goodies because lots of people have ordered stuff.... thanks everyone! See you when I return!
