Come to our US fabric swap!

Posted on August 19, 2015 by The Makery | 0 comments

If you're fabric mad you're going to love our free Fabric Swap we're hosting at The Makery in Bath.

The drop-in event is organised by American crafty divas Kelli and TJ, who are visiting our beautiful city in September. They are bringing with them a whole host of fabric stash and would like to meet some like-minded crafty folk for a swap shop!

Fabric Swap's are HUGE in the US so this is a great chance to bundle up some of your unused stash (clean and pressed please) and bring them along to swap with other beautiful bundles that might take your fancy. 

We love TJ's beautifully tied Halloween bundle

To take part all you need to do is choose from the following themes, Halloween, Christmas or if you prefer, a general selection. Just bundle them up and tie something round them like ribbon or twine to keep them together. 

1. Three fat eighths - Halloween
2. Three fat eighths - Christmas
3. Three fat eighths - Whatever you like!

*NB: A Fat Eighth = 25cm x 55cm

Kelli has her bundles all ready to pack!

Then drop in between 11am - 1pm on the day, bringing your fabrics with you. We'll have some tasty treats for you to munch on whilst chatting craft and swapping your fabrics!

If you are reluctant to part with your stash feel free to purchase some fun new fabrics in The Makery when you come in.

PLUS Swappers get 10% OFF in our shop on the day!

Book in today!

New Kit & Haberdashery Range

Posted on November 18, 2014 by The Makery | 0 comments

Here at The Makery we have been beavering away to bring you some exciting new goodies. 

After our appearance on 'Dragons' Den' last year we have been really eager to produce some extra special kits that would wow our creative community. Working alongside Bath based  Wild and Wolf we are so proud to show you our new range.

En-treasured inside these bright gold foil boxes, swaddled in stylish neon tissue paper are some great make-away projects! Whether you're giving the gift of a purse making kit or receiving the treat of a flying duck project we can't wait to see all your creations. 


But the treats don't end there. Alongside the kits we also now have on sale some stunning new items for your haberdashery stash! 

Crochet lace, neon and  glittered ribbon and metallic twines are sure to be a key feature poking out the top of many Christmas stockings. These quality trimmings are beautifully presented, some of which are on a wonderful wooden Makery spool that can be used again and again!


All of these delights can be purchased in The Makery shop at 19 Union Passage, we'd love to see you! Or in our online shop. And if you can bear to wait, they'll soon be available at our Bath Christmas Market stall. They'll also be stocked nationwide in John Lewis, Fortnum & Mason and many independent stores. And they'll be available in the US from early next year.

If you would like to stock any of these products in your shop please contact the wonderful Wild and Wolf team!

We are looking forward to seeing the walls of Britain and the US emblazoned with fabric flying ducks and stylised stag heads.
