Happy New Craft!

Thursday, 29 December 2011

January needn’t be dark, dull and decidedly unexciting!
No, no no. Why not start the New Year learning new crafts and stuff at Cushion & Cake?
It’ll be sociable, fun and I’ll show you how to make some stonking things to take home and gloat to your friends and family that you made them yourself.
Each Sunday will look at a different area of craft so choose one, choose a few, come along and make. All materials will be provided all you need is yourself.
Sunday 15th January- Paper
Sunday 22nd January- Fabric
Sunday 5th February- Print
Sunday 12th February- Valentine Special
January sessions are priced just £10 and February £15 and will start at 4pm.
Call 0141 339 4114 to book your place or fill out the wee booking form.
A deposit of £5 would be smashing to book your place.  
You can pay in cash or through paypal at tea@cushionandcake.com

Buy Handmade This Christmas

Monday, 5 December 2011

I, like many of you out there have made a conscious effort this year to spend my hard earned pennies a bit more wisely this year when we’re out Christmas shopping.
I decided that I was going to buy from smaller retailers and any money that I do spend this Christmas, is spent wisely. The UK Handmade ‘Buy Handmade’ campaign outlines reasons why you could consider buying from smaller independent shops and designer makers. Not only can you be assured that your purchase is a bit more bespoke or unique, you support local economy and reduce the carbon footprint by buying local. These are issues that we should all be thinking about and doing our bit to contribute.

My wee tearoom is supporting the buy handmade campaign stocking work from local designer makers. So if you can, come on in and have a look xx

Molly Makes December 2011

In the post last week I received a copy of the latest Molly Makes magazine and was particularly delighted with the delivery as Cushion & Cake is in it!

I was contacted a month or so ago from some of the team at Molly Makes looking to find out a bit more about crafty goings on at C&C. I thought it would be nice to tell them about my Christmas Crafternoons. They put together a lovely little article about the tearoom which hopefully will cpature the attention of new customers to C&C.
Thanks to all at Molly Makes xx
