- Stitching with others is so bloody brilliant!!! A few snapshots from today's Scrappy Collage workshop at Grace's gorgeous new @beyond_measure_uk space. These pics perfectly sum up today for me: enjoying cloth and thread and each other / appreciating how each person has their own unique textile & thread handwriting / realising how much of ourselves goes into each stitch / reframing perceived "imperfections" as the things that make us "us" / feeling the benefits and joy of slowing down, focusing on the process instead of the end result and being willing to go where the process takes us.Beginnings.Some proper introductions to our beautiful hens who have now been with us for a whole week (already feels like they've always been here 🥰): 1 - Clara - first into everything 2 - Frida - big and blousey 3 - Barbara - gobby show-off 😆Our hen house finally has some residents!! Now just need to think of some names....🤔

OK, so it’s no secret round here that I’m EW’s number 1 scissor fan (read why here)! I tentatively ran an idea past Nick this summer about making some custom MIY Collection scissors, I didn’t even know if this was something that was possible or that he would ever consider doing, but joy of joys he said yes and here’s the result!!
Ernest Wright’s 8″ dressmaking shears and large bow embroidery scissors with custom white handles and the MIY Collection logo etched on the blade, right beside EW’s own esteemed logo. What a super happy bunny I was when these arrived.
You can buy them now in the MIY Collection shop and in person at MIY Workshop classes. The shears are £40, the small scissors are £25. A snip when you think about the price per use of scissors that are going to last you a lifetime…..
As I’ve started sourcing various bits of equipment and materials for MIY Workshop and been asked by students if I can get various things for them, I decided to put together a price list and sell a limited range of things.
These items are not available through my website, just at the workshop. I won’t be holding masses of stock, so if you would like something let me know and if I don’t have it I can order it in for you.
