Reticule News


Hope you are keeping well and have avoided the nasty bugs that are going around.

From experience I can assure you they are best avoided.

Life at Reticule is going on as normal, the business is now on the market (we are

retiring) through Mere Commercials ( and hopefully

someone will show interest. It would be ideal for a married couple or even a group

of friends and there is a lot of potential for expansion for anyone who has

enthusiasm and passion.

We are still getting new fabrics in and are waiting for the new Lewis and Irene

ranges to come in. We are also going to our trade show next weekend and no

doubt we will be tempted with some goodies.

We are looking forward to having stands at:-

Rheged Penrith on April 8th / 9th. For anyone who went last year and had

problems with parking, they are running a park and ride from Penrith Auction Mart

which will make things a lot easier.

Lancaster Embroiderers Guild day 22nd April at Lancaster University

Stricklandgate Stitchers Exhibition 12th /13th May

As promised here is a list of classes which I’ll be running during March

unfortunately Wendy is unable to run any more patchwork classes. Instead of

thinking up a lot of new classes I am repeating the most popular classes to give

people a chance who missed them first time around. These will be the last classes

at the shop so if there is something you would like to do that is not on the list, I

have left some dates available and may be able to organise something for you, just

get in touch.
