More items to show you from Anita

Anita has made this wonderful patchwork needlecase and pincushion for her daughter. I love the way she has used the vintage fabrics which she purchased at Rag Rescue.
Beautiful work Anita, I'm sure your daughter will love them.

Antique and vintage quilt pieces

At the Rag Rescue website tomorrow.

Really disappointed today as we had hoped to take Molly our granddaughter sledging tomorrow morning. My husband went to look at the hill today and can you believe it there was hardly any snow on it. There was lots of grass showing which was covered with ice, but far too dangerous for an almost five year old to sledge on. Sob! Sob!

Please send us some of your snow.

Pretty vintage fabric squares at Rag Rescue tomorrow

Hope you are all keeping warm in this snowy weather.

If you are snowed in or your local gift shops are closed why not make a parcel up of fabrics for your crafting friends , this Christmas. There is such a variety of vintage fabrics, trims and haberdashery at the Rag Rescue website

I may not have been able to buy at the fairs this time around but fortunately my dealer friends from both the UK and France are posting fabrics to me. Keep a look out in the New year for lots of exciting vintage fabrics and crafting items.

Vintage scrappy parcels and vintage fabric

All at Rag Rescue tomorrow Wednesday 1st December

My own creations using felt and vintage fabric

Many people have asked me if I use vintage fabrics myself in my own crafts. In my spare time I make felted pieces incorporating my own Rag Rescue vintage fabrics.

I thought you might like to see a few of these.
























I made the felt on the whole by the wet felting method but also by using the embellisher machine.

Vintage French boudoir doll, vintage fabric and vintage tassels

Striking vintage fabrics and a most amazing vintage French boudoir doll will be listed tomorrow morning at 7am giving you time time to check them out before you set off to work.

At last vintage fabric scrappy parcels on line now at Rag Rescue

Sorry this is late. I had lost my internet connection with 'talk talk' all day yesterday until a few moments ago this morning. I didn't get any joy from them apart from them telling me they would send me a yellow wire which would take up to 5 days to arrive. Of course this was all double Dutch to me and I thought I would have to resort to using my dongle connection on pay as you go. Thank fully I've just connected so it must have been a fault somewhere else. Obviously the talk talk engineer didn't know what he was talking about.
Isn't it dreadful how we rely so much on the internet.

Fingers crossed that my connection doesn't go down again. If you don't get tomorrow preview this evening you will know why.

Well that's my moan out of the way and I'll try and catch up with all my emails now.

More lovely vintage fabric scrappy parcels are now online. I thought I's better make some more as I had sold out.

Hope you are all keeping warm and not having too much difficulty with the snowy conditions.

No more fairs for Rag Rescue

For those of you that haven't received  a Rag Rescue newsletter today, the news is that I will not be going to the fairs next week as the weather forecast isn't good. Snow and wind chill factors of -6 degrees would not make it pleasant.
The good news is that Rag Rescue will continue listing items now without having to be closed next week. These were going to be our last fairs anyway as we have decided that from 2011 we will concentrate on the textiles side of the business via the Rag Rescue website.

Rag Rescue on Facebook

I've been meaning to get rag Rescue on Facebook  for a while now and this morning finally managed it. Although I've been on face book under Sandra Kerensky for a while now I haven't had much spare time to explore it and still need to get my head around it. Anyway would love you all to become fans of both my sites.

Oops! forgot to say you can  get there by clicking on the link on the right hand side bar.
