This is the start of a new adventure for Joan and myself, an exciting new patchwork and quilting shop called Dotty Dolly. We are based in Wellington, Somerset, at 13 Fore Street (opposite the Nat West). You can contact us on 01823 660879.

We are easy to get to from junction 26 on the M5 - come and see us if you are passing by.

Busy week

Had a busy week this week.  On Monday we had a Sewing Bag workshop which seemed to go well, everybody went away with a completed bag and as you can see they all look completely different. 

Sadly Joan had to attend a funeral in the North East this week so I had no mate to help with the class on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. Yet again the 'alone' signal must have gone out as one of the reps came in with samples that had to be ordered straight away but Joan will be pleased that I didn't go completely mad. 

We had a delivery today of these robot fabrics which are really cheerful and the fillers could be used with many of the other fabrics we already have.

This week  I have also been focussing on our website, all photos and text have been sent off (with the help of my husband)  although he did send the wrong ones to begin with.  So fingers crossed it should be finished sometime in April.

We also had a visit from Gary (plus Rose, his lovely wife) from Timeless Images who came over last Thursday evening to take some professional photos of the shop which will be useful for our website and promotional bits and pieces - exciting.  Good news is that he didn't want photos of us.

One of our customers bought in this lovely bunch of daffodils as a thank you for helping with her first ever quilt for her first grandchild.  We discussed what to do in the shop which she then completed at home, she would return for the next stage until finished.  She was really pleased with the end result and now just has to wait to find out what type of baby it is.

On Saturday 3rd March there is a Vintage Fabric sale at Trull Village Hall which starts at 10am, so if you have some free time it is worth a visit.  Unluckily (or luckily) I am working so will not be broke by the end of the day

Hope you all have a good weekend
