Thank you so much to everyone who came along and made it through the snow to The Knitting + Stitching Show last weekend. We had a lovely time despite the weather and I loved chatting to those who came along to say hi!
Having a change of scenery and spending a day just focusing on sewing and nothing else is a great way to build your sewing and dressmaking skills as well as giving you a big dose of inspiration for even more gorgeous projects!
Our beautiful bright studio is always buzzing with creativity and ideas during our workshops and we have now added 4 brand new project based workshops to our ever expanding range!
I feel really lucky to have such a huge light and bright window in the shop that we can fill up with lovely displays. Our resident window designer extraordinaire Jo always does such an amazing job so in todays post and vlog, I wanted to give you a little tour and chat through the outfits and garments that are featured.
A day of being surrounded by lots of fabrics, sewing stuff, talks, workshops, inspiration, ideas and awesome people watching to spot lots of handmade outfits.....sound like your idea of a great day out?
Then come and visit us at The Spring Knitting + Stitching Show in London Olympia - stand B79!

It's been a super busy time here at g&g lately as we have been receiving so many amazing new fabrics! I wanted to keep you all up to date with these new arrivals, which as always are in the Just arrived section of the website, but here my latest vlog too. It shows you all the fabrics up close so you can get more of an idea of drape and feel!
Browse the Just Arrived section for all new arrivals, or follow the link before to the specific fabrics I talk about in the video!
With the shops 5th Birthday on the horizon, it's been a nice chance for me to look back over the past years and see how much has changed in my little world of g&g. I've been really lucky to always have a great team to help me run the business and the recent changes to team g&g are no different.
So without further ado, I wanted to more formally introduce two new fantastic team members!
We welcomed Abi back at the start of the year as our new Operations Supervisor. Abi is working full time in the shop and will be, among many other things, answering your emails, overseeing the workshops and listing new fabrics online.
How to wash fabric is something we get asked a lot about - and quite rightly, knowing how look after your precious fabric purchases and handmade clothes is a really important consideration when dressmaking.
In my latest Youtube video I’m talking about prewashing, what I know as a retailer about the fabrics we sell and also my own personal experiences from all the different fabrics and garments I’ve washed over the years.
Check out the video below, or read on for quick reference summery notes for future projects!
I'm so excited to show you a round of up lots of the new fabrics we have had in this month! It's usually a busy time of year with new fabric arrivals, but this year there seems to be so much more!
The best way to keep right up to date is by checking our Just Arrived section, but here is my first round up of 2018 in the vlog below. All the fabrics I mention are then linked in this post to make it even easier to find them.
I really hope it gives you lots of new inspiration and ideas!
