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 (merecommercial.co.uk) 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.
