Mother's Day Gift Ideas
As Mother's Day is just over two weeks away now for our UK friends on Sunday 6th March, we thought we'd pull together some ideas to inspire you for the perfect gift for your fabulous mum.
This is always a really poignant time of year for me; as I'm sure many of you were, I was first taught to sew by my mum. She was a brilliant seamstress and I remember her patiently sitting next to me as I struggled to get to grips, first with a needle and thread, and then when I was older, with the sewing machine!
For the perfect Mother's Day gift we've got lots of lovely sewing and stitch kits, which are suitable for both those who've never sewn before, and experienced sewists alike!
We've recently added to our own label kits; firstly we've made a panelled cushion cover Marden Monochrome Cushion Cover in a mix of Nani Iro double gauze fabrics Joy Flower and Mountain Views, with Robert Kaufman's Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in Black for the back.
Secondly we've our Bepton Blue Scarf, the kit for which includes fat quarters of Nani Iro's Freeway, Joy Flower and Robert Kaufman's Woven Spot, we've included extra fabric designed to give the maker flexibility when choosing the size and positioning of the front panel pieces.
Merchant and Mills are always a firm favourite, both with us, and with you!
All of their products are so beautifully packaged that you're guaranteed to find a lovely gift for your mum whatever your budget. Whether it be a pack of their Glass Headed Pins, a Sewing Pattern (which we'll wrap with gingham ribbon free of charge in the run up to Mother's Day), the Rapid Repair Kit, Workbook, a collection of 6 patterns designed to create a stylish multi-layered wardrobe, or the Leather Needle Wallet to name but a few.
Finally, you can't go wrong with fabric, why not give one of our Fat Quarter Bundles, each of which contain a lovingly selected range of our designer and organic fabrics, perfect for patchwork, quilting and small projects.
Whatever you decide on we're sure your gift will Make Your Mother's Day!
