Hello little friends.

Delicious and delightful record cafe Pie & Vinyl have now taken delivery of some new little friends! Fear not if you don’t live near by they are also in my Folksy shop.

However I thoroughly recommend a visit to P and V as it is one of the most magical shops ever dreamt up. Where else can you eat pie, ice cream sundaes and drink ginger bear out of tea pots and buy records?







Cloth bunny workshop!

On Saturday 19th July you will be able to join me at Make for a toy rabbit workshop.

The workshop has been especially developed for Make with an exclusive toy patterned designed by me for you to keep and use again. The class is suitable for ages 8 and up, but can be enjoyed by all ages. I would recommend if a young crafter wants to come that they team up with an adult partner as we will be using sewing machines.

Apart from it being heaps of fun as you get to bring to life your own Ooh la Lapin bunny you will also learn skills like hand embroidery, basic machine sewing and toy design.

Here are the details:
