We have been spending our time in lock-down busily working on our new website, which we’ve updated with a range of SACKVILLE & LANE products for this season. As the days get shorter stay, cosy with our range of textiles and homewares.

We will miss catching up with everyone at this year’s craft fairs such as the Australian Quilt Convention and the Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show. These events are always fun and very inspiring. But instead, we’ve had the opportunity to work on SACKVILLE & LANE projects, including a collection of cotton string bag crochet kits and some lovely new scarves on the way. These, along with our much-loved projects from our range of knitting, quilting and embroidery are all on the new website.

We invite you to browse the new SACKVILLE & LANE online, and our range of this season’s projects, perfect for being stuck at home, indoors or catching some warm rays from the Autumn sun.

All the beautiful SACKVILLE & LANE things: Japanese linen quilts to hand-stitch; Mrs Sew & So embroidery; bold Echino prints, perfect for wild stitching; knitted and crocheted baby rugs in wool/silk yarns; beautiful double muslin baby wraps; and of course our fine yarn scarves.

Come and see us: we are under the dome, at the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens, Melbourne.

Thursday–Sunday April 11th-14th 2019.

The show is serious about sheep and wool, and everything to do with them: shearing, working dogs, sheep everywhere, and wool in every possible form: yarn, fabric, felt, garments...

We will be there, in the Country Living and Lifestyle Pavilion just inside the gate, with beautiful yarns, lots of books, pure wool felt and many unique Sackville & Lane projects.

Come and see us and lots of other wonderful wool-related things.

Beautiful embroidery by Mrs Sew & So

Heather Scovell
21 October 2016

Gail Bett, “Mrs Sew & So” has a new range of beautiful embroidery designs. These are available as patterns and kits, designs are easily adapted for different projects such as cushions or bags.

Gail’s designs are inspired by a wide range of influences, from traditional European embroidery to her interest in Indian textile culture and design. Her designs have traditional references with contemporary style and appeal. Her colours are really beautiful. Some soft muted natural colours, others bold, always in interesting and unusual combinations.

SACKVILLE & LANE is having an Open House in Northcote with Gail on the 18th November. This is an opportunity to see her work and hear about her inspiration and approach, and to share her enthusiasm for creating really beautiful embroidery pieces.
