    Which EMBOSSING MACHINE is best to buy and use?

    Hi, I got a Cuttlebug for Christmas and I LOVE it. The only downside is that you can't use it for large pieces of card. As mentioned by somebody else - I could do with giving up work so I would have more time to play!!!!!!!!!

    I've never seen that twizzle stuff before, it looks really cool - might have to investigate! BTW the necklace and earrings are gorgeous.

    Online fabric?

    Oh dear... I can feel a bit of a spending spree coming on!!! Is there a pub nearby where I can send my other half while I am 'browsing'??????? As for the other place - it looks amazing! A weekend away in the caravan might be in order!

    Online fabric?

    Thanks, never thought of that! Have just discovered some material i bought ages ago so when I've used that I'll go fabric hunting in town - there are a couple of places that have curtain fabric nearby.

    Online fabric?

    Hi, I've decided to go back to sewing but there aren't many fabric retailers where I live. I see lots of fabrics in magazines but can't get it locally. Does anybody know the best place to buy fabric online? I'll be making clothes for myself and accessories, bags, etc (hopefully!!!)

    Yay, first issues here :)

    I have just finished reading my mag and absolutely loved it! Can't wait to get sewing again, it's been a while, but this mag has definately reawakened my interest in sewing! Definately going to make the top, not sure about the dress, maybe a bit short for me. There is now so much I want to do. I was put off sewing a couple of years ago after i recovered my 3 piece suite - it took ages and was quite a difficult job to do, never tackled anything on that scale before. Put my machine away and never wanted to see it again ever! But this brilliant mag has got me raring to go again. Well done to everybody involved, can't wait till the next issue!
