Welcome Living in Loveliness
Crafting friendships – creating memories
How exciting! It has been six years since I launched my ‘Living In Loveliness’ sewing workshops and I absolutely love what I do. After quitting a very stressful sales job when they applied too much pressure just days after giving birth to our youngest son Chase, my husband suggested getting out my sewing machine. It was then that sewing started as a hobby for me. I am mainly self-taught (although I did a little cushion sewing in secondary school) and I’ve made every mistake more than once! Along my sewing journey I’ve stumbled across lots of super easy hacks and I get so much pleasure sharing my hints and tips in classes.
My heart lies with bringing people together and sharing my passion for crafting and sewing. I absolutely adore having my own business ‘Living In Loveliness’ which brings me so much pleasure as I love to see people relax and enjoy sewing. The best feeling is seeing the look of joy on people’s faces with every stitch sewn and project completed – even the stitch-unpicking is part of the journey.
During the past six years I’ve been nominated and received several awards including Best Craft Centre 2017 and 2018 and The Queens Award for Voluntary Service. Both my eldest children have also received this award because I strongly believe in teaching them to ‘pay it forward’.
I always look forward to every class I teach and love to meet people who want to learn how to sew. I am also very lucky to have made some fabulous friends by sharing my passion for sewing.
I look forward to sewing with you soon
Lots of love
Fabulously Fast Fat Quarter Fun Sewing Subscription
Be inspired by our monthly sewing subscription!
Issue 1 -Sew Pretty
Subscribing to our ‘Living In Loveliness’ Monthly Sewing Subscription means that each month you will receive four beautiful fat quarters and three super-easy sewing projects ranging from bags and bunting to storage solutions, home accessories, cushions and so much more. Every month, you will also receive a fabulous notion such as a ruler, needles or a heat erasable pen to build up your sewing accessories. This will vary each month but will compliment the projects within your monthly kits.
Throughout this series of patterns, I will teach you how to get the most out of your four piece fat quarter bundle. When scraps are left behind, you can find inspiration in my new subscription ‘Sewn with Scraps’. In addition, each month I will introduce you to new hints, tips and techniques which will help you become a more confident and accomplished sewist.
As a new subscriber, you can choose where to start your sewing journey. If you choose to start from month one, for your first month you will receive Issue 1 and 2 as when choosing to start here you will receive an extra pattern giving you six projects to choose from with your first fast quarter bundle. From there on, you will receive one issue at a time with three projects to make using your beautiful fat quarters, so for the second month you will receive Issue 3 and for the third month you will receive Issue 4. When choosing to start at month 4, for the first month you will receive Issue 5, for the second month you will receive Issue 6 and for the third month you will receive Issue 7. I am currently writing the patterns for months 5 and 6, so, if like me you love surprises, this may be the perfect place to start. You can sign up to the monthly subscription up until the 7th of each month then all kits are despatched on 15th of the month and tutorials for each project are posted after 18th of each month.
Each month your kit will include a full colour step-by-step A5 instruction booklet for three fabulous projects with detailed instructions, both written and photos, to take you through each step. Your pattern booklet will also tell you what additional fabrics/ribbons, zips and trim are needed to complete each project. Not only that, we have a ‘Living In Loveliness’ FFFQF VIP private Facebook group where I will be live each month to show you sneaky peak of the beautiful fabrics you can look forward to receiving. You will need a Facebook profile to access this group. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Facebook profile as I’ll also post the fabric options for you to admire in the VIP members’ area on the website. I absolutely love choosing the fabrics and often feel torn when choosing so with that in mind, you too will have the flexibility to change your mind. I’ll update the group/members’ area on the 8th of each month but please note that you will need to decide by 3pm on the 9th of the month if you would like to change your fabric option. If I don’t hear from you I will send out your initial chosen fabric option. On the lead up to Christmas we will have a third fabric choice option of Christmas fabrics. I absolutely adore Christmas so being able to offer these fabrics and themes is super important to me.
Throughout the month, I will record a tutorial for each project and keep you updated when the tutorial is live in the members’ area of the website. You will receive the update via an email and post in the private VIP Facebook group. The tutorials will always be available to watch back as often as you wish so long as you are a subscribing member. In addition, each month you will receive a newsletter with special offers, sneaky peaks at fabrics and VIP special offers.
If for any reason you need to cancel for a while, you can always pick up from the issue/month where you left by sending an email to kerrie@livinginloveliness. When you cancel your membership, you will automatically be removed from the VIP Facebook group and members’ area on the website.
I am looking forward to welcoming you into the fabulous group and being with you on your sewing journey.
Lots of love
