Come and craft

Sunday, 16 October 2011

Well folks the little group of crafters meeting every second Tuesday evening at Cushion & Cake is growing! Every Tuesday you’ll see regular Cushion & Cakers Nichola and Cat knitting up a storm while eating cake but a number of others are now coming to join us.
You don’t have to be a sewer or a knitter, just bring something you’d like to work on and if you don’t have a project to bring with you, you can come along anyway… I’m always working on something, you could help me!
If you want to come along, you’ll find us on these dates: 18/10, 1/11, 15/11, 29/11,13/12.
Also don’t forget the Christmas Crafternoons taking place at Cushion & Cake. The perfect way to get you excited about Christmas, the way you did when you were a child :-)

China addiction

Friday, 14 October 2011

I’ve always been a collector and a hoarder but my china collecting is getting out of hand! Obviously I need lots of tea cups and saucers for the shop but I certainly don’t need the 10+ tea sets I must have in my one bedroom flat.
Today I bought a whole bunch of my favourite Johnson Bros Grey Dawn china from a charity shop for the obscenely cheap price if £3. I almost shrieked when I saw it greedily gathering all of it up and dashing to the check out.
What’s worse is that I’ve still got a box of Grey Dawn stuff that I haven’t unpacked that I sent my folks across counties while on holiday to collect for me. Help….

Christmas Crafternoons 2011

Tuesday, 11 October 2011

Hi everyone!

Well I’m excited to announce a series of Christmas Crafternoons which I will be running this Winter at Cushion & Cake. You can book a place to come along on a Sunday afternoon to get Christmassy and get crafty.

I’ll take you through a number of crafty activities that will get you in the mood for CHRISTMAAAAS!

You’ll get to drink your fill of hot chocolate and scoff a load of Christmassy treats while listening to the best Christmas tunes and take home some of your own hand crafted items and some ideas on decorating for Christmas.

To book a place for you and maybe a friend, fill out my wee booking form here

Places cost just £10 each and include refreshments and all materials.
