The Berylune Blog

Crafting & Socialising
So we've been having a think about our workshops. You all seemed to really enjoy the craft party, which had more of a 'Come and play with us!' feel, rather than a 'Come and learn from us!' feel to it. We have been toying with applying that idea to our craft workshops.

We'll still be getting super talented 3rd parties in to teach for us - Tracy with her expert sewing knowledge and crowd control...
Pom-pom Tutorial
We sell snazzy pom-pom makers in the shop, that make it quick and easy to churn out a few in no time at all! Those of you who came along to #craftpartyleam might have played with them in the craft lounge. We love pom-poms! They have -almost- as many applications as washi tape!

It's been a bit manic.

The last few weeks have whizzed by. We were insanely busy getting the Etsy Craft Party sorted. Then I had to get my VAT return done (I hate it, but at least it means I'm never more than 3 months behind on accounts work...). Things started to return to normal last week. We had a lovely knit & natter on Thursday with three new faces. Then Saturday came, and with it back to back workshops, with...
A thing of beauty
Remember the Berylune banner in rainbow ordered retro fabric from Fiona's beautiful pictures?

Amy decided to make a retro-patchwork-rainbow lamp shade as an example for Saturday's workshop. Naturally.
