Welcome to the Savvy Sister's Blogg

Wendy (my sister) and I had this idea to create an on-line community for like-minded women (both young and old) who wanted to share knowledge, skills, ideas. Generally supporting each other in the same way neigbours would support each other in the days when you knew who lived next door or down the road!

Day by day we are building on this idea - our blog will track our journey and you are welcome to join us.


ps. The photo is of 3 sisters who used to live in our home town - our dad took this photo in the 1960s.

New Ebid Shop

We set up a our Savvy Sister's shop on Ebid.co.uk this week - SavvySisters Ebid Store.  So far, we haven't had any sales but fingers crossed.  We are getting quite a few sales via Ebay, a few through Amazon and of course we seem to be selling a steady trickle through Coldharbour Mill.  Wendy has taken our felt making kits to some of the shops in Oakham to see if they will stock them and she has also made contact with a lady who is interested in running felt making workshops with Help the Aged.  So, slowly but steadily our little business grows.

We have also been playing around with Nuno Felt - this is where you felt wool into silk.  Wendy has made a cape, which isn't quite finished yet and I made a bag to go with the scarf I made a couple of weeks ago.  Here a photo:

Mosaic has been the focus of our Thursday night craft club, we haven't got any completed articles yet, they still need grouting so watch this space - we should have some lovely photos for next week. Sadly we are losing a member of little club - Eva, she is leaving Taunton to start a new job in Gloucester.  We'll miss her cheerfulness but wish her good luck with her new venture!

Eva off to Gloucester
