Purlesque Launch

Hi, we are Purlesque, a little craft/ knitting boutique based in Liverpool city centre, and we absolutely fell in love with the new Kokka fabrics from the Button Company!  We just had to get some!
We also thought they were worth throwing a party for, so on the 12th of June we hosted a launch night for the new fabrics, more of the Button Company's scrummy buttons and some of the stuff we made from these gorgeous items. 

 We transformed the shop into a summer haven planted some flower buttons into some plant pots and crocheted some cacti.
  Sarah baked some yummy cakes and a good time was had by all! The fabrics have been a huge success and customers always comment at how unique they are and unlike anything they have seen before. Can't wait to order more!
To keep up with more from the Purlesque team, check out their blog !

I've got another secret. And it's one you're gonna want to find out...

Someone told me the other day that I could never be a spy, because I sound like a herd of elephants chasing a herd of buffalo, running for their lives on an african plain, the sound reverberating in the silent morning like thunder at midnight, like, well, the noise I make when I run, apparently.
There is another reason I could never be a spy, and it is not really my fault.  It is totally physiological.  Something happens to me when I have a secret to keep, especially if it is a good one.  My dad is the same.  When he has done something naughty or mischievous, you can tell it.  It's all in the eye.  And I am the same.  The secret bubbles around my body, peeping out wherever it can, desperately trying to tell someone it's there.  
And once someone knows there is a secret being kept, well, it's only a short while before the secret is being shared, isn't it?

So, for all you shops out there who are coming to see us at the Stitches trade show in later this month, CHECK THIS OUT:  We ain't just buttons any more.


What?  Now, don't worry, we still have the buttons - and many a luscious one too.  It's still who we are and what we do.  That could never, and will never change.    
But we kept seeing all this lovely stuff that's hard to find on our little island, but I know many of you crafty types would like to buy it so:  

for the jewellery maker:
for the sewer:
to the patchworker & felt lover:
for the general crafter:

so to anyone who hasn't planned yet to come to Stitches (and who is eligible) I suggest you get on the phone and get us to send you a leaflet which lets you get in, nice and easy, like.

I would love to entertain you on our stand, which is J42 methinks, or nearabouts.  I am liable to be so excited I may do a little dance.  But don't hold me to it.

Oh dear, I guess that's one step further away from MI5 then.

See you then x

sneak peeks...

Here at Button Company we have been beavering away trying to get some new fabby colour mixes out to you... you're going to have to wait a while, and we are still thinking of names for these mixes, and I shouldn't really show you these (one of them was only born yesterday).  So if you don't tell anyone, I won't.
The one above is probably one of our most vibrant mixes to date... rachael and I were discussing yesterday that it makes us think of 80's pop videos - something by wham! perhaps.
And then there is this one below.  

and you may have seen this new one, pop up in the shop a short while ago.  I like the fact that the pink is more fuchsia, more popping.  It's amazing how different pinks can be - when you put this next to the hot pinks, the colours are amazingly different.
there are others, but the colours haven't been photographed yet.
