Chanel Inspired Jacket Needs Serious Skills

I saw a wonderful outfit on tv the other night.  Watching a pathe news recording made back in 1963 of the Kennedys, shortly before the terrible deed.  They were covering how glamorous Jacqui K was, even from a tiny girl in her lovely safe almost aristocratic upbringing.  The clothes they featured were beauties from the …

Lacet is an established sewing business which looks at talking about the latest sewing technology, designs and machines. We aim to please our visitors by providing them with the latest in this area.

Sewing Machines

Sew this long length of knitting to the tea cosy to form four loops, a bit like a flower. These loops make the hen\'s nest. Ideal for keeping the teapot and boiled eggs warm too, children really enjoy them. Taking less than an hour to make they do make a lovely surprise on Good Friday and Easter Sunday when you present someone a hard boiled egg for their breakfast that still has a hen sitting on top of it.
