Hi Hello to you all,
Welcome to sunny June! What fabulous weather we have been having. Let’s hope it lasts for the Summer.
We are getting in to festival season, which for us at the shop means Glastonbury is nearly here! It’s Just a few miles down the road for us and we love all the build up and excitement in the area as Somerset prepares for the festival.
This year we have been really lucky to have the new Glastonbury fabric By Kool Kactus arrive (and sell out) in the shop. Kool Kactus is the very creative and talented artist, Millie Noble (Becki’s daughter). Millie’s fabrics are fan art inspired and range from famous faces, films, retro toys and now an incredible glasto fest design. Millie’s designs are unique and exclusive to us at Millie Moon. The Glasto fabric includes all the highlights and memories of the festival, from the iconic ribbon tower, to the decorated bins and of course the long drop toilets. This fabric is 100% cotton 150cm wide and is £20 per metre
We have currently sold out of this again! But we will be placing another order. Can’t guarantee it will be here before the festival now, but if you would like to order any please drop us an email and we will add you to the wait list.
We have also had a delivery of the fantastic festival cross stitch kits by @thrillingletter. These festival kits make great gifts for fans of the festival or just to do whilst watching it on the tele.
Need to dress up, embellish that outfit or just add some colour to your festival wardrobe we have feathers, sparkles, ribbons and trims perfect for some up-cycling that old denim jacket.
