Yes, we have a cheap clothes sale. Oodles of them. An awful lot have been sent off to their new homes. There’s still a lot of quality stuff left though. Take a look for yourself. We’ve got Plastisock, Ej Sikke Lej, Elodie Details, Katvig, Mini Rodini, Molo and loads more. If you’re shopping for babies and toddlers then it’s perfect for you.
In other news my Spotify sewing playlist is growing. I can’t work in silence and have to get my groove on to get going. Have a listen or even better, follow me and we can have a sing-a-long! Just search me out; Lisa Stell.
The tree and decorations are away. Sigh. Back to normal although we’ve kept some of the fairy lights up just because they’re so pretty.
Girlchild has been busy with her new hobby – the art of tattooing with felt tips. I have numerous flowers that she’s inked on me. I’m hoping it won’t graduate to ‘love’ and ‘hate’ on my knuckles.
We’re also knee deep in Hama beads. They’re brilliant for creating pretty much anything. Maybe she’ll work out how to make me a car seat cover in the style of those 90′s wooden beaded affairs but in primary and neon beads. Might be a tricky one to iron.
Anyhoo, we have a big discount code (huge) that’s available until Sunday 19th January. Simply enter ‘fantastic15′ when you’re checking out and you’ll receive 15% off your order. Boom.

Happy new year! Ok we’re a leedle bit late with this one but better late than never.
We’ve had a wonderfully quiet and relaxing Christmas here at FKHQ but now we’re ready to take on 2014.
So what’s been happening around these parts? Well, we’ve got a super clearance sale on which is bursting with bargainous delights. Have a rummage and see what you can find.
We’ve also been busy creating a new children’s clothing range for summer. Tshirts, A-line dresses, leggings and pinafores are being pieced together and sewn up by our very own sewing elves (now Christmas is over they’re a bit short of work). My wonderful friend Jean will be doing the photo piccy snaps of them. They will hopefully be on the website by February.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos of tiny people inflating some raisins.
To make room for all the new stock that’s winging it’s way to us, we’re giving the you the opportunity to bag yourself a bargain in our clearance department. Clothing, accessories, toys and fabric are all included.
Can this day get any better you may ask yourself? Well no. We hear on the grapevine that the cult tv series from the 1970s, The Clangers, is being resurrected and will be on our screens in 2015 thanks to CBBC. I can feel a batch of blue string soup being made. In the meantime, you can read all about it here.
Being ever the optimist, I’m sure that summer isn’t yet over. It can’t be. I need to get burnt and go lobster red at least once. But rainy days can be good days. Good days for sewing at least. I don’t feel as though I’m missing out on too much when I look through the office window and see it pouring down.
I’ve not had a huge amount of time to sew in the past few weeks. The school summer holidays have seriously cramped my style and I’m ticking the days off on the calendar to the 3rd September. In the meantime I haven’t been idle. We’ve had a huge delivery of some rather splendid, dare I say stupendous, fabrics from Sweden and Germany. We can’t get enough of those scandi fabrics here at Funky Kitsch! I’m preparing the autumn and winter clothing for the shop whilst keeping an eye out for some pretty impressive Christmas gifts to add to the stock. Keep a close eye out for new stock landing at the end of August. I wish I could reveal more but I’m sworn to secrecy. **cough** Blafre **cough**
The keen eyed amongst you may have spotted that our ever popular range of scandi knit fabrics have a new lower price. We’ve taken 10% ish off each fabric. This isn’t a fleeting special offer, oh no. We have permanently discounted them. We want to share the fabric love at an affordable price.
My Pinterest boards are groaning with nonsense really useful knitting and craft projects. There’s some lovely free sewing patterns that you might like, especially for going back to school, Halloween and Christmas. Make do and mend is definitely on the agenda for us this year. I’m firmly a believer that Christmas (or birthday) gifts that are handmade really are made with love (sweat, tears, hysterics, crying, gin etc). If you’re not already following me on Pinterest here’s the link to save you sifting through millions of pins. Am I good to you or am I good to you?
If you would like to catch up with me in real life, up close and personal, then you can find me at Levenshulme Market on Saturday 24th September. As usual there’s a plethora of all things bright and beautiful and, we’re having a MAHOOSIVE sale. Nothing to lose and everything to gain for you dear reader. If you can’t make it next Saturday I will be there each fourth Saturday of the month up until December when the final market of the year is being held on the evening of the 20th December. Christmas innit.
