According to Grazia, sewing machine sales at Tesco are up. Our favourite fashion weekly tells us that the superstore sells two machines every minute, which is an increase of 198% on this time this year.
This is a great example of good stuff coming from the "current financial climate" (although it does seem a shame that the big supermarket chains even get a bite of profits generated by the wholesome world of crafting.)
In our next post we'll be looking at crafting spaces - the corner of your home you devote to getting creative. If you'd like share your sewing zone with the world then drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in touch. Especially if you've got a sunny orange sewing machine like the one above! Bet you can't get those in Tesco.
