I'd like to introduce this new edition to my sewing room. It looks super sharp, it feels super sharp, it IS super sharp!
My very first professional scissors. I love it!! If you would like one too, go and see @myfabricology ...many, many thanks. #onlyforcloth#toolsforlife#merchantandmills#red#extrasharp
An interesting delivery today - a very special dry oilskin made in the UK made from 55% nettle fibre and 45% cotton. A heavy, tightly woven cloth, suitable for bag making. Nettle fabric was originally developed for the Swiss Army. During the WW2 Switzerland was militarily a neutral country and as such became a safe haven for refugees etc. To stop the flight of refugees additional border controls were added by the Germany forces and effectively Switzerland became blocked and the movement of people and goods became restricted – Cotton started to become a scarce commodity. To extend the use of a limited resource it was decided Cotton fibre would only be used for apparel garments, vests, shirts etc. For industrial applications, canvases etc. other fibres were sought and the Swiss developed a method of taking Nettle fibre and blending it with Cotton to produce a yarn that could be woven into heavier fabrics. The Nettle fabric produced today keeps true to its original heritage using the original construction dating back to the 1940’s. #madeinengland#merchantandmills#nettlefabric#oilskin#bagmaking
Här kommer en liten linnetygsfilm. Hoppas att det framgår vilken mjuk och härlig kvalité det är✨ Nu har vi massa fina färger, mörkgrått, mellangrått (blyerts), mörkblått, turkost, orange, rött/vitt och blått/vitt (mini-hundtandsmönster), gult (nästan neon), klarrött och sist men inte minst ett mörkt marinblått lite tjockare linnetyg som vore helt perfekt till kappa... Än finns inte alla färger i webbutiken men snart så! #merchantandmills#linnetyg#fintyg
Nach einer sehr lustigen Fotosession mit mir alleine... wie kann man sooo bescheuert gucken... auf einem Bild erschien dann der DPD Mann! Zurück zum thema... eine Bluse Jude aus nishio charcoal von Merchant and Mills, und ein Raglan Kinderkleid mit Glitzertasche... vielleicht schon für Weihnachten 😅🤔 www.juni-design.com #stoffeonline#merchantandmills#buxtehude#hollenstedt#tostedt#jude
C'est reparti pour un projet en couture à la main. Tissu noir et gris, avec ma presbytie galopante et la lumière qui baisse, je me tire une balle dans le pied. Mais je kiffe mes nouvelles épingles toutes fines #merchantandmills , qui piquent le jersey sans le deformer
@merchantandmills 'The dress shirt' done! As a self-taught sewer, I absolutely love these patterns -I feel totally confident in being able to make them the best they could be. And they don't take long either 🌟🍯
I really wanted to wear a new skirt and my new shawl today so made up the skirt and had some time left to finish the shawl... But it's an i-chord bind off and it's taking Forever (capital F)... And I stayed up until 2am and realised it wasn't going to happen 😂SO TIRED! 😂 skirt pattern is Saltmarsh by @merchantandmills and fabric from @wearethefabricstore #memade#sewing#merchantandmills#saltmarshskirt#skirt
I was asked my @missnissdesigns #widn ..........I finished this Trapeze dress by @merchantandmills in a lovely plaid. I think I have conquered the evil sleeve issues. There will be many frocks with sleeves in my future.
Store update: You’ve heard us go on and on about the gloriousness that is a Merchant & Mills sewing pattern - timeless styles, clever construction, beautiful, elegant draping. So you can imagine how thrilled we are to now be stocking a goodly portion of their range.
We’ve got patterns for 11 garments, two of their fantastic sewing books (one that has another fistful of gorgeous patterns within it), and a wee pair of scissors that want to come sit by you while you stitch.
Of course we’ve got the classic Trapeze Dress and the Camber Set … and lots more. Have a wee peruse through the images here for a sample. And do let us see what you make with these! The link’s right up there ⬆️. (Confidential to our knitterly friends - many of these garments make fantastic companions for the handknits! Just sayin’...) 📷@merchantandmills
Our block print dress in indigo Daisy | Also available for you to order in our other block prints - indigo spot and indigo marble 👌🏻I'm thinking of making up some to show you, which print would you like to see?.. #revealtheprocess
Had a little break from “real” work today to start a fabric scrap quilt. So meditative just ironing and sewing, didn’t care too much about placement. Going to keep adding a few more bits whenever I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed
Bought the boiled wool from Coolcrafting at Yarndale, the chambray from Merchant and Mills , the buttons are made from mussel shells purchased whilst on a road trip in Scotland , the pattern is by Makers Atelier ... love it ! #coolcrafting#themakersatelier#merchantandmills
