Clearance Chalet

The Abakhan Sale is back

So due to circumstances this year we have been unable to have our famous Warehouse Sale so we have created our very own Clearance Chalet based at Mostyn Store (the old craft shop) which will be open from 9th - 29th November.
We have all the great offers we have had previously at our warehouse sales including fill a bag, full rolls of fabrics, special yarn offers, plus more great bargain buys!
Abakhan, Coast Road, Mostyn, Flintshire, CH8 9DX

Join us every second Wednesday of the Month in the Cafe at Mostyn and get creative for charity!

Make something, raise money and swap craft tips over a slice of cake and a cuppa - sounds perfect to us with all proceeds going to Mind Charity 

Never crafted before? No problem. Our Crafternoon is as simple as getting together and creating something. Have a go, make a mess, and don’t worry too much about the finished product. 

We will have some simple hand sewing projects available to make on the day (basic materials donated by The Craft Cotton Co) or feel free to bring along your own project!

Abakhan Sewing Bee Final 2018

Abakhan Sewing Bee Final 2018
The Abakhan Sewing Bee Final has come and gone for another year! (boo hoo) However what a great day we had at our Altrincham store who were hosts to the event this year! The smiles on their faces above prove it!

The day consisted of all of our nine finalists (one from each of our stores) sewing two patterns against the clock! First pattern was a choice of toiletry bag which included a zipper and some rather tricky tabs! After a break for a delicious lunch provided by The Cafe at Abakhan, Mostyn it was on to the second pattern. Children's pyjamas were up next and we had some great designs which were made beautifully and included some great features including cuffs, pockets and buttons!

Abakhan Sewing Bee Final 2018
It was then down to business so time for Celia Banks of Sew Fundamental and Great British Sewing Bee contestant Paul Clarke to decide on the winner (rather them than us!)

Abakhan Sewing Bee Final 2018
After a quick shopping trip at the Altrincham store the finalists and family and friends were all invited back up to the workshop for some bubbles where the winner was announced. We would like to say a BIG congratulations to our winner for 2018 'Alexandra Nolan' from our Chester store!!

Abakhan Sewing Bee Final 2018
We would like to take this opportunilty to thank all of our finalists who took part and to everyone who entered the Abakhan Sewing Bee this year. We would also like to thank Celia Banks, Paul Clarke for coming along and judging the entries and also Janome Sewing Machines for supporting the event.
