Book a birthday party now!

We hosted a really fun birthday party on Saturday afternoon, the ladies requested a basic jewellery class and so they enjoyed an afternoon of getting to grips with beads, tiger tail, crimps and various pliers!

As usual the hardest part was deciding which beads to use!

We taught two styles of necklace and how to make dangly earrings, there was even time to make a couple of pretty matching bracelets at the end.

The easiest part was sipping tea and eating delicious cupcakes made by Lizzie!

If you are keen to learn to make your own jewellery do book on to a workshop soon, or if you would like to bring a group of friends for a birthday party or just a fun get together we can arrange this in daylight or evening hours to suit you!

ps. the cakes are on us!

We are Moving!

We were really thrilled to have been approached a few months ago by a friend who runs another fabulous retail business in Sherborne, about a potential collaboration. After much discussion, many meetings, dozens of emails, quite a few cups of tea and even a cheeky glass of wine, the deal has been done and we are moving in with - drum roll please - HomeSweetHome!

Liz has spent 4 years building a wonderful business and it has developed a reputation for offering "lovely things to come home to", with its individual mix of interiors, accessories and gifts for the home and kitchen.

With the current trend for making and creativity Liz approached us with a vision for a combined business which could offer all the beautiful items we both currently stock and in addition make use of the under utilised extra workroom space behind the shop.

At Butterfly Bright we have been bursting at the seams and we were on the look out for a bigger premises and so we jumped at the opportunity to team up with Liz. It is also lovely that we will be occupying the premises that for many years was the original haberdashery in Sherborne. Liz says even 4 years in she gets plenty of customers returning to the shop thinking it is still the haberdashery.

Liz has so many beautiful and complementary items in her shop we wont be changing her stock base dramatically, merely combining our treasure trove of designer fabrics, buttons, ribbons and haberdashery with her home and kitchen accessories. It is a nice touch that many of her suppliers are local or small British makers and we hope to inspire more start up businesses by continuing to offer a variety of workshops going forward.

The even more exciting news is that we will be expanding our offering from sewing, patchwork & quilting and jewellery making workshops and will soon be adding knitting, crochet, dress making, embroidery, paper crafts, cake decorating and much more to our class list! Hooray!

We have some extremely talented and even award winning tutors lined up so keep an eye on the website for updates...

By the way - this is all happening very soon - we will have our last day in Swan Yard on Saturday 5th May and commence trading from Home Sweet Home (Digby Road, Sherborne, DT9 3NL) from Tuesday 8th May 2012!

Our contact number will remain the same 01935 817303
