New Year, New Hobby? New Sewing Kits - Hooray!


Happy New Year everyone! 2014 has finally arrived after a restful and lovely Christmas with nearest and dearest friends and family. It's hard to believe that the festive season is nearly over and that next week it's a return to work with the Hope & Gloria School Sewing Clubs.

It is always fantastic to take time out from a hectic schedule just to be with those who matter most and to celebrate the Christmas period. Re-charging the batteries works wonders and now I find my fingers itching to get creating and put together plans for a truly creative 2014.

For many of us new year equals a new hobby or just returning to one that has been put on hold. With this in mind I have been thinking a lot about Hope & Gloria Sewing kits - the thing that I am most proud of is that all of our sewing kits are easy to make and age appropriate. Experience from our school sewing clubs tells me that there is nothing that we sell that a sewing enthusiast between the ages of 7 to 11 should not feel confident about making. The projects not only look great but they are achievable.

During the break I have found time to design a few new sewing kits that are available to buy from today at our online shop - www.hopeandgloria.com. Perfect for Winter days when the weather stops outdoor play, they are a fantastic way to spend a couple of creative hours.

I love handbags and I know lots of girls who love to make them so I am really pleased that these delightful ready to make accessories form part of our sewing kit range.
