Long Time!!!

Hello fellow bloggers,

It has certainly been a long time since we last wrote. Last year, well it was the worst and so this year can only get better we hope.

We are in the process of adding and replacing new items and changing some fabrics that are no longer available to purchase. Our website and online shops are still open to purchase from there have been a few changes on our Swanky Maison and Folksy shops.

 New Style Pegbag

At the beginning of last year we finally decided it was time to try and make a name for ourselves, easier said than done. As hand sewing is something that we have always done, Embroidery seemed the answer and would be especially unique because it will all be done by Hand.

So here is a little something that we tried and took to one of our fairs last year (which sold immedetly). 
Daisy style embroidered Heart (Large)

Most of our new items will be made using Linen, Cotton and Linen/Cotton Mix....Our new items will have a vintage/ modern mix.

Please do bare with us with the changes to our website and shops, we would love to hear from you with your views :o) xx....

Tuesday Natter


It has been a hectic June and July for us here at Annette's Allsorts.
We have had cancelled fairs, time consuming orders (which we don't mind :-) ) and most important a bereavement Norma's mum passed away.

Needless to say we have been a little behind on news etc that has been happening. Let me now get you all up to date.....We were contacted through our Folksy shop from the Sew Hip magazine as they wanted to feature our Pink Dotty Doorstop on their 'Things We Love' page, of course we were thrilled :-) (we were number 2).

Sew Hip August issue

We thought that was exciting, a couple of weeks later we were then contacted by Swanky Maison saying we have PRESS coverage!!!
Our Hand Embroidered Strawberry cushion was to feature in the Holiday suppliment of the Sunday Mirror.

After having a week off sorting personal things with loosing my Grandmother, we are now back.
All our shops are now open again for all your orders. We are working on new ideas for our Memo Boards (new sizes are now available).

Look forward to hearing from you have a lovely week xx
