Pomtastic Party Puns

I was gutted to see yet another grim, grey sky this morning. We were due to do some after-hours work on the craft party this evening, and I was hoping to get some photos of our samples. The sun was clearly on our side though, as it graced us with its presence just in time...

One of our Craft Lounge activities will be making pom-poms with our fancy pom-pom makers! Pom-poms aren't just for bobble...

Beavering away...

I've not been inspired to take any photos this week. The weather was horrible yesterday and everything looked grey because of it. Sorry.

But here is a VERY cool late Washi Wednesday for you to enjoy, borrowed from Teawagon Tales:


We've been beavering away on our craft party! Everything is now ordered, so we are working on our samples for the 6 - yes, SIX - mini craft workshops you'll get to try...

Ahh! So much going on!

We've been ordering new things for the shop. I have ordered a big thing for me that won't arrive until June (I've had the same one for 8 years now, it's time she retired). We've also booked a thing for you all to enjoy.

Watch this space for a very exciting announcement coming soon. In the mean time, here are some fawn brooches:

What a year

What an amazing year we've had!

We've completely changed our logo to something we think suits us far better.

We're stocking brands we love and have more home made items than we've ever had before. We trashed the shop and re-arranged it so the layout is much more to our liking.

Our craft workshops have become increasingly popular, we're really proud of the fantastic skills people can now learn in the...

Wow. Just wow.

Thank you all, so, so much! All 75+ people (we lost count), that came to our Etsy craft party and made it fabulous.

We ate, drank and crafted. We carved rubber stamps, made cardboard owls, sewed felt brooches, made macrame bracelets, drilled and glued key rings, made washi tape jewellery, knitted, nattered and generally had a ball!

Thank you Amy, for working your socks off for two days straight, to...

Friday Finds - Vintage fabric packs

Our Friday Finds this week come from all of us, and have been accumulated over several years, but they are finds nonetheless! Amy, Zoë and I all adore vintage fabrics, especially retro bedding. In order to make anything fun with it, we think you need at least two contrasting bits. So we have pooled our collections to make these fabulous fabric packs!

Thank you to everyone who came along to the...

Only a week to go! A box of very exciting goodies has arrived from Etsy - here are some of it's contents:

Amy and Zoë spent Wednesday organising supplies for the rest of the projects we have planned. Many of you have been asking us exactly what we'll be getting up to on the night - have a look at our pinterest board to see the kind of things we have in mind. You can expect to pick from at...

Washi Wednesday

It's Wednesday kids. Here is Amy's Washi box:

and inside:

We'll certainly be playing with washi at our Etsy Craft Party next month. Maybe we'll have a game of stick the washi on the donkey. Better suggestions would be appreciated.

We're having a party!

We have teamed up with Sewsmith (aka Lara, who teaches screen printing and other fabulous workshops in our studio), and Sew Make Believe (a popular, Leamington based crafting and book club meet-up group that our good friend Zoë helps organise), to host our very own Etsy Craft Party!
It's at The Sozzled Sausage just around the corner on Regent Street in Leamington Spa at 7pm on Thursday 20th June.

The price when you book here online is £5 - you will be able to purchase tickets on the door on the night, but they will be £6.50 and availability will depend on online ticket sales.

Party food and crafting materials are included in the price - the craft projects we'll be offering will be confirmed closer to the time. They are likely to include some fun hand sewing, badge making, lino cutting and origami to name a few! We'll have a Knit & Natter corner, so feel free to also bring along any projects you're working on!

Drinks are not included in the price, but there is a bar in the function room, so bring some pocket money with you.

For more details on Etsy's annual, global craft party, have a read of this.

So, there will be glue, sharp things and alcohol. What could possibly go wrong?

Please note: We do have an eventbrite page for the craft party - if you have registered your wish to attend, you will still need to pay £6.50 on the door, or book here for the advance booking rate of £5!
Please present your booking confirmation on arrival.
