Our summer dresses are now touring the South of France.
We have the bambi dress on the left which is now out of stock sadly and on the right is the sweet days dress.
We think every day should be a sweet day – we won’t tell your dentist as long as you brush twice a day.
The dress ia also available in 5 other materials – but don’t be shy – if you are really desperate for us to make you a bespoke dress then go ahead and check out the other jersey fabrics available. Just contact us – we are most obliging!
Lots of lovely ribbing has arrived here at FKHQ. All organic and very soft. I’ve already used it myself (tested, natch) on a top I made for Princess Katherine. Looks fab with a contrasting fabric and gives a professional finish to any garment.
We’ve a range of colours from juicy orange, vivid, pink, red and blue. See for yourself.
And bonus time; If you order more than a metre of any of our fabrics, then whatever size of ribbing you order, the postage will be refunded (ribbing postage only).
We’ve currently got loads of bargains in the summer sale. You’ll find great discounts across all ranges. Our stock really is selling very fast, especially the likes of Maileg, which you’ll find at a huge discount to other retailers.
I can’t believe we’re already ordering Summer 2014 stock. We’re still enjoying the sun and summer of 2013! But fashion and retailers wait for no one and are always well in front of the rest of us mere mortals.
Have a good mooch through our sales stuff and I am sure you’ll find something to catch your eye or dare I say, maybe a Christmas present or two?
We’ve added some more items to our sale category including the completely brilliant Snowdon Design gift/lunch bags are a going for a song at just £5.50. Only a few left so they’ll be snapped up very soon.
Lots of clothing has also been added too. Check out the Monikako range of quirky tops and skirts which currently has 45% off.
You’ll also find lots of Maileg at knock down prices. Again, these are proving so popular that some items have come into stock and gone straight out of stock that day. Don’t worry, we have ordered more. If you would like to be emailed when items come back into stock, please sign up to our infrequent newsletter.
We have added some craft kits to the website. The very cute Paapii kits just require a needle, thread, stuffing and lots of showing off when finished.
Did you know we now offer price matching? Well we do. For further info please click here.
We also offer telephone ordering so you can pay safely and securely over the phone. Our number is on our homepage.
If there is anything you would like to ask us or you have a query, then please call or contact us.
We already know our prices are very competitive. We’re so confident that we’re the cheapest that we’re offering to price match everything* on our website. If you can find a product that we sell for less, then we’ll refund you the difference on your purchase.
We only ask that you post us the link of the website/shop where the cheaper product is so that we can check it out. Easy peasy!
Please note the price match does not include wholesalers, retailers outside the UK and auction site items due to concerns regarding authenticity.
AND if you can show us a cheaper website and we can beat that price then we will offer an even lower price – BETTER THAN PRICE MATCH!
As my family and friends will attest, that apart from my love of all things fabric, I also love all things chicken. My chickens are actually my feathered children, have different personalities and temperaments and are all named. I have 21 chooks at the moment including a cockerel whom we have named ‘Swiss Toni’ (“cock-a-doodle-doing is like making love to a beautiful chicken”)* He’s a vicious character and would quite happily peck my legs until they bleed but he does a grand job of looking after his girls. His dad is a Buff Orpington and his mum is a black Orpington so he’s quite a looker.
I’ve been keeping chickens for over a year now and am completely addicted. I started with 6 and the flock quickly grew when I took on a few battery hens. Once you get the bug, you really have a job not buying hundreds (ED – Defra might have something to say about that!). It sounds bizarre, yes.
For the first time I’ve had a broody hen – she is called Steve McQueen – don’t ask. She’s sat on roughly 15 eggs. Not all of them were hers; she’s gathered anyones and everyones she could find. Happily sitting on her clutch all day she muttered clucking noises to herself in the dark corner of the hen house. She really did a great job. We now have 5 chicks that hatched; 4 from the mummy hen and cream legbar from the incubator. The legbar was from someone I met from the ‘chicken world’ (a parallel universe where it’s ok to chat about prolapses, red mite, soft eggs etc etc).
Like any proud grandparent, I have photos on my phone of the chicks.
