I-Spy with my little eye

Hello Everyone,

Things have been busy here in the Fairy Den. Lots of sewing & embroidering happening which means new products for you!!

First up I have redesigned our Burp Cloths, they are still the same great shape & size BUT they are now more absorbent having 3 layers to them now & the new design looks soooooo groovy. You will be the hippest Mum out there! Even better I have put them on special for the next week 🙂

Secondly I have released our NEW I-Spy bags. What’s an I-Spy bag you say?

Well an I-Spy Bag is a fun, fleece bean bag with a see-through window. Each bag is filled with non-toxic polypropylene pellets, unlike others that use rodent attracting rice or wheat, in which 25 assorted goodies are hidden inside. Then kids manipulate the bag moving the pellets to find the items. These are discounted by $5 for a limited new release special time

Until next time

Back to School Specials

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great Christmas & a wonderful New Year. We did in our household & the holidays have been wonderful so far…………*touch wood* ………………  but now that all the Christmas bling has gone, its time to think about those school book lists we got back in November 2008.

To help with the cost of sending the kids back to school we have put our Library Totes and our Art Smocks on special for the next 2 weeks only.

We have also released a new product called Lip Gloss or Memory Stick holders these are so handy to have on hand and have been a hit with my product testers. These are also at an introudctory price of $6 each for the next 2 weeks.

As a super special for newsletter subscribers only if you order both a library bag & an art smock you will receive a FREE Lipgloss/memory stick holder. All you need to do is place your order & I will contact you regarding which design or name you would like on your FREE ITEM

As always pass this newsletter onto anyone you think may like to receive it & you can post it onto any groups you are a member of if they allow.

Christmas Stocking

Recently a lovely lady from All For Women contacted me about a personalised Christmas stocking for her nephew Owen. Last year I did personalised stockings but with the rush leading up to Christmas I never actually got them onto The Sewing Fairy site & with many people leaving them to the last minute to order can you believe I actually forgot to take photos!!!! But I did take photos of Owens before it left the Fairy Den.

The whole stocking made from red velvet & white fur

Close up of the name embroidery only 1 style of many available

Detail on the ‘toe’ section of the stocking, stitched in metallic gold thread.

I have some more Christmas ideas up my sleeve & will be test stiching them very soon. Keep an eye out for further posts & pics 🙂 After all there is only

Kudos to Janome Australia

How wonderful are peoples generosity ??  As you know I do a lot of embroidery for the Purple Bra Day here in Northampton which is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Foundation of WA.  Everything I make for them I donate 100% so they can sell them at a good price & they donate 100% of the money raised to  BCF WA.

Well over the years I have contacted various companies I deal with & have had numerous threads & stabalisers donated to the cause. As I do all my embroidery on a Janome 300E & only use Janome Blue Tips (needles) in the machine, I contacted Janome to see if they would perhaps donate a packet or two of Blue Tips. (5 needles per packet). I sent them photos of items I have made, contact numbers for the people who co-ordinate the day so they could verify what I do & that I am not just someone after a free ride.

Well imagine my surprise on Monday when I collected my mail & there was a parcel awaiting pickup & when I opened it, it contained a FULL BOX of 500 Janome Blue Tips!!! OMG I couldnt believe it their generosity is astounding!! I have written to them to thank them for the donation & placed the needles in the big box marked Purple Bra day, as I keep all their items seperately & ONLY use them for Purple Bra stitching!!

Janome Australia THANKYOU from the bottom of my heart you are truly wonderful!!!
