Gina-B Silkworks will be attending The Big Textile Show on Sept 26th & 27th at the Leicester Grammar School. Our first weekend show of this type so, if you are in the area, do please come along and say hi. You can find out more about CreatiFrames and see some lovely samples at the same time. As the name of the show implies, there will be a focus on all things textile, yarns, and kits, and lots of other goodies. Find out more online by clicking here. It should be a lovely day out.
Our new CreatiFrame Minis are launching on the Create & Craft channel on Nov 26th at 4pm.
These little frames are available in a range of shapes and sizes and are perfect for jewellery such as pendants and brooches, or for embellishments for cards and scrapbooking.

We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads form one to another that creates something.
Sandra Day O'Connor
