Lampshade Making Workshop

Hats or lampshades?

Yesterday we had a lovely group of ladies, learning to make drum-style lampshades.
We took them through the whole process; ironing, lining up, measuring, placing, rolling and finishing. (With a tea and biscuit break in the middle) By the end we’d created a perfect 30cm lampshade for the ceiling or a table lamp.

They looked great and we had some perfect matching with chevrons and dots, which are not easy!

Well done ladies!

Keep an eye on our website to see when the next one will be scheduled!

New in this week!

New in this week we have the September Blue collection from Dashwood Studio, designed by Susan Driscoll (theprinttree.com). 100% cotton £14pm.

The collection is described as having a nostalgic colour palette to recall long hot, lazy days walking in the countryside amongst the wildflowers, birds and butterflies.

The mustard shade is my favourite, especially for Autumn/Winter 2014. I think it would make a perfect Peter Pan collar blouse.

We are also offering a special online promotion on Dashwood fat quarter bundles of 8 for £25. Visit our online shop here!

Apple of my Eye

With Autumn in the air, we've had some lovely new Riley Blake fabric arrive.
Both from the 'Apple of my Eye' collection by The Quilted Fish. They go well with our Apple tape measures, don't you think?

Lampshade Making Workshop

Saturday 20th September 10:30am-1:30pm

Due to popular demand we will be running Lampshade Making Workshops. You will get to make a 30cm Drum-style Lampshade which can be used as a pendant or standing lampshade.
All specialist materials will be provided, so all you will need to bring is half a metre of a fabric of your choice.

You will leave with a professional looking lampshade as well as all the skills to make more.

We are happy to advise on patterns and fabrics. A dress-making weight cotton is ideal. We offer a 10% discount for workshop customers. So pop in and see what catches your eye. We have lots of fabrics, trims and we also sell lampshade kits so you can make more at home.

A deposit or payment is required to secure your place. Please pop in, email flojoboutique@gmail.com or call 01179041498 for further information or booking.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

These are just a few of the lovely fabrics and trimmings available to purchase in-store!
