Where did June go?

I feel like this month has just flown by!

Here's a rundown of what's happening here at Tiger Lily Crafts.

We've added 9 new sewing kits to the collection this weekend. Our kits are fast becoming bestsellers (although they've a long way to go to catch up with the Sock it to Em kits!).


I'm proud to announce that our secret project is almost ready to launch! If you (like us!) hate the long wait between seasons of the Great British Sewing Bee then you'll love the Tiger Lily Sewing Bee!

There will be a small entry fee to cover the materials needed. We'll send out a box with your bits and bobs and instructions for the challenge. Depending on numbers there will be several categories for winners - chosen both through voting and by James/me. Prizes will include gift vouchers, products and (of course) bragging rights.

Keep your eyes peeled for a blog post this week with more details about how our Bee will work.

The first round will feature an alteration challenge to put your creativity to the test. We'll be visiting the local Mind charity shops to stock up on the secret materials.

Comment below to let us know if you're interested in taking part. Don't worry - you aren't going to be obligated, it's only so we can get an idea of numbers!

I've created a timetable for online meet-ups on the Stitch & Craft Chatterbox Facebook Group. It covers July's dates including 2 general chitchats, a mindfulness session and a Bottie-Along where you can get help with your Botties projects. Tap the image above to go join the group!

James has been sharing his sewing adventures over on Instagram. He's tackled the Fairfield Shirt, Hinterland Dress and a quilt for me so far. This weekend he's been stitching the Quadra jeans by Thread Theory.

Thank you for all the lovely comments and support from our followers!

We are in the process of changing our postal provider to Hermes so we have more control over tracking orders. The integration is due to be finished in the next few weeks and includes options to upgrade to next day services.

I'm aware of an issue with some discount codes not applying properly. This is currently being worked on and I expect to have it solved by the end of the week at the latest. If this has affected you please get in touch and I'll make a manual invoice for you with your discounts all taken off.

We've made some further reductions in the clearance sale. Help us make some more space for our new product lines and get yourself a wee bargain at the same time 😬
