At long last, welcome to Ditto’s first real blog entry! Not so much a small step as a giant leap, as this is something brand new for us here!

Finding a good topic to start with has been tricky, hence the long gap between having a blog and actually starting a blog!

Gill, the owner/founder of Ditto Fabrics, is on holiday this week, leaving me (Sam) the prestigious task of taking delivery of the first of our autumn/winter fabrics.

I am a lucky girl! Not only do I get a sneak peek of new fabrics, but I’ve got the inspiration to start Ditto’s blog properly!

Among the most noteworthy are some gorgeous boiled wools in some unusual colours, including ivory, dark plum and french navy. There are also some ex-designer brushed cotton checks to look forward to as well.

And this is just the beginning!

Unfortunately, it will be a while before they are ready to go on the website, but I hope this has given you the chance to think of what you could make. Check your wardrobes and drawers to see what clothes you might need! Any ideas would be welcome.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some fabric to drool over…
