Yes the time has come to share my very exciting news!!!
"imagine the melancholy violin music now please"
My blog has been neglected
My sewing machine hasn't seen the light of day for ages
I've not read any blogs for weeks
I cannot remember the last time I posted on Instagram
not bought any fabric for months (27th Novemeber 2013 to be exact) hardly bought any fabric for months*
I've still not sorted out my new baby and new big sister gifts for Ange - sorry!
I've spent the past few months planning and working in preparation for … drum roll please!
|Helping write a Press Release|
….the launch of duckeggthreads.co.uk
my online fabric shop opens for business
Friday 11th April!! Whoop Whoop!!
|A Liberty Rainbow|
It is small (with huge plans for the future) and specialist, selling just Liberty Tana Lawn, mainly fat eighths with a flat rate postage of £2 for UK customers - I know we don't like paying high postage costs, lets face it it adds to the cost of the fabric. With this in mind I have kept the postage as low as I can, just covering postage fees, packing materials and a very small handling fee.
I've put together an eclectic range for the launch, with both Classic well loved prints and new Spring/Summer 2014 season designs. I'm in the process of uploading all prints onto my Pinterest board, they should all be there from tomorrow (Saturday 5th April). Why not head over and have a look, I'd love to hear what you think. And, if you cannot find the print you are looking for, please email me and I will try and get it in for launch next week.

The website isn't finished yet and there is still work to be done. I predict this next week is going to be even more manic than the past few weeks, I'll be burning the candle at both ends just to make sure everything is perfect for the 11th.
I cannot tell you how excited I am. Finally I can share my news and I'm really looking forward to starting a new venture.
I'm going to leave you now with an animated squeal *eeepp* and hope you like this small selection of photos.
*Admittedly there has been one huge significant fabric buying splurge and a sneaky purchase from The Village Haberdashery's clearance sale earlier this week. Oh, and I very nearly forgot the 2 FQ's I bought during the #thegreatukfabricdestash on Instgram in January.
