Christmas Crafternoons This Weekend

Friday, 30 November 2012

I can hardly believe that tomorrow is the 1st of December! I feel that my Summer holiday was just a few weeks ago… It has been terrifically cold this week here in Glasgow. The sky looks snowy, the ground is frozen, it looks beautiful.
This evening I’m preparing for two Christmas Crafternoons this Sunday at the tearoom. For the first time I’m running a session for little ones to come along with a chosen adult. I can’t wait to do these sessions. No one loves Christmas more than children so I’ve prepared some great crafts including making lollipop Christmas tree decorations out of Fimo clay and spicy Christmas pomanders.


For the adults, we’ll be making beautiful Christmas tree ornaments from fabric felt and paper.

Lots of pictures will follow next week of the tearoom fun!

Christmas Crafternoons

Monday, 26 November 2012

We’ve marched on through November, through the wind, rain and bitter cold and it is almost December!

I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year. In December I’m running six Christmas Crafternoons for children and adults. The first on of the season takes place on the 2nd December. That’s this weekend! I’m looking forward to serving my mulled spice Christmas tea and baking gingerbread and other treats.

To find out about all the dates of this year’s Christmas Craftetnoons visit the Events page of the website.

Also relating to Christmas and Winter in general,  a little reminder that we have reduced our opening hours here at C&C while it is cold and quiet out there. We will now be closed on Sunday & Monday and will open from 11am each day.

At the weekend I visited the Country Living Fair in Glasgow and met a lovely stall holder who I hope will become a Cushion & Cake stockist. Here’s a sneak peek.

Winter Opening Hours

Monday, 12 November 2012

There’s no doubt that Winter is coming and it is now time for Cushion & Cake to change to Winter opening hours. We will open from 11am till 5pm but will be closed for both Sunday and Monday during the quieter months.
I hope this causes no inconvenience and in the meantime maybe you could come along to a Christmas Crafternoon in December on Sundays in December. See the website for details.
