It’s time to…

…move on.

Agnes Coy  began just before I left England in 2006. She has been good to me over the past 7 years. She gave me a focus whilst I settled in a new country, she introduced me to some amazing people, she enabled me to make good friends, she allowed me to use the old, old fabrics, notions and papers that I adore and carried with me from one side of the world to another. She has played an instrumental part in my happiness and contentment and I’m grateful to her. I answer to Alison and to Agnes. I feel now though, that it is time to leave her behind as I look forward.

Agnes Coy’s final in-person event will take place at the Makers At Home Garden Party on 7th December where all products will be marked down. The online sale will launch on Sunday 8th December and will run for two weeks only.

At this stage I will keep the So Tread Softly blog open as I can’t quite bring myself to let that go. I imagine that my posts will be just as infrequent as they’ve always been but it will be nice to know it’s there to update you on progress, plans and even the odd online pop-up shop maybe.

I really appreciate those of you who have taken an interest in my work over the past few years and a heart felt ‘thank you’ is being sent to you.

I’ll post here again before Agnes goes.

With love and thanks,

The Rathkeale Fete in Masterton is this coming Saturday(16/11/13) – always a fabulous affair. I’ll be having a stall there filled with treats perfect for wrapping and popping under a tree. The fete runs from 9.30am until 3.30pm. You can find more information here.  Maybe see you there.
