As this years Great British Sewing Bee draws to a close in just a few hours I must say that I'm glad to be on the outside looking in. It's been a tough 8 weeks for those gals - but so fun and entertaining to watch!
It's funny how quickly time passes and I can't believe we've almost been open for a whole year!
It was this time last year that we were in week 2 of the Sewing Bee and I was frantically trying to finish painting, logging stock on the till, set out the shop, find a coffee machine, promote the opening, deal with being on TV, training for a marathon, writing a book proposal, trying to remember to eat....phew! I can't believe I did it!
A year on and a LOT has happened at g&g. It's been so aweseome, action packed, like a roller coaster, and seems to have passed so fast!
We've grown so much, learned so much and met so many amazing people. It's the customers who make a shop and we feel really lucky to have such a lovely amazing bunch of people who support us in many different ways.
To celebrate, on Saturday 26th April (exactly a year after we opened to a que to peeps down the street) we are having a party - all day!
Come by the shop for cake, homemade lemonade, presents, a prize draw to win some lovely sewing boxes and special birthday offers!
I'm really excited that my good friend and fellow Sewing Bee finalist Sandra along with last years winner, the very talented and amazing Ann will be popping by during the day to join in the fun!
I hope you can join us!
