The 2018 selection has all of the saturation and variety that Sun Print is known for, but with an added element of an increase in value differences throughout the line. It’s even more useful for adding to other fabrics or using as a stand alone collection!

All the ways to say ‘I Love You’! Our favourite Valentine cards by some of our favourite designers

Last week we featured products for crafting your own Valentines and this week we thought we’d share some of our favourite already-made Valentine’s Day cards in the shop. No shame in giving a beautiful card made by someone else, and ours are so lovely! With love in the air and Valentine’s Day round the corner, we’ve got you covered! We have the most perfect selection of Valentines cards you can find! Whether you are a hopeless romantic or in the early stages of a relationship, we have a card that says just the thing!

Valentine's Day Cards

Find the perfect match with À L’aise sophisticated stationery. Designed and printed in the UK by Suzie Dicker, these beautiful cards are stamped with gold foil. ‘Written in the Stars’ is a favourite!

Valentine's Day Cards

Yellow Owl Workshop have the quirkiest ways to say I love you, and the ‘Hey, Hot Stuff’ card is just right if your relationship status is undecided. These fabulous cards are risograph prints and the vivid colours and playful designs will brighten up anyone’s day on Valentines!

Valentine's Day Cards

All the ways to say have hipster love in mind with their ‘Love Tattoo’ and ‘On the Road Together’ illustrated cards. Illustrated by Claire Leina in Aix en Provence, these beauties are worth framing! Another favourite card for couples is Meri Meri’s ‘On a Bicycle Built for Two’.

Valentine's Day Cards

We love the ‘Wild About You’ tropical-themed card by local designer Erin Hung of BerinMade! It’s another perfect card for relationships in the early stages. Meri Meri’s confetti cards always make use smile and this ‘Love & Happiness’ design will do the same for your Valentine.

Essential cutting tools: what you need to know!

We have lots of great cutting tools in stock, but what are they all for?! Here is a quick round-up to help you out.

General use scissors

For chopping up paper. These ones are great! You’ll need a pair of these on hand for cutting sewing patterns, pattern paper and for general crafts so you don’t even think about using your fabric scissors!

Dressmaking Shears

For cutting fabric and only fabric! Our Fiskars Classic Dressmaking Shears are perfect for cutting all fabrics and are 10″ in length. These are the classic – the ones your mum probably kept locked up (and is still using, because they are for life!)

Embroidery Scissors

Mainly used for snipping threads when doing embroidery and cross stitch projects but can be useful for snipping seams and other more intricate things too. Choose from the classic Fiskars or everyone’s favourite stork scissors here.

Rotary Cutters

A quilters best friend but also handy for dressmakers and other projects too. These are like pizza wheels for fabric! We also have a mini cutter (28mm) for curves and smaller projects. Rotary cutters should always be used with a self healing cutting mat underneath to protect your work surfaces. Quilting rulers are also a must for straight lines. Never use with just a normal ‘school ruler’ as it will slice chunks out of it! We have some handy starter kits available which include the cutter, a mat and ruler.

Thread Snips

Snip off all those flyaway threads with these! They are spring loaded snips that are designed to be operated quickly when cutting threads as you go. Plus they are designed to let you get very close to your stitches.

Pinking Shears

To create a zig zag cut in your fabric. Is good for finishing seams and will prevent fraying on most fabrics. You can also get a pinking blade for your rotary cutter – cool!

Buttonhole Cutter

This handy little gadget is just for cutting open those buttonholes once you have stitched them. No more accidentally slicing open your stitches!

Seam Ripper

Mistakes do happen and this is the tool for undoing those stitches! An absolute essential for your sewing kit, and we love the Clover version for that comfy handle (which you’ll be grateful for if and when you need to unpick a loooong seam!)

Decorative paper scissors

Fun for card making and scrapbooking to create decorative edges.
