Make do & Mend...Summer Vintage FUN!
Our love of craft,vintage and fashion have spurred us on into hosting another "Make do & mend" inspired event.
We love the ethos,the original war time up-cycling and recycling movement born out of need. Times are tough and though 70 years on this movement is making a return and we're hoping to share a few nifty tricks with you so you can save some cash and a few frocks on the way.
Craft Guerrilla have created a few vintage "Make do & mend" inspired craft packs for you to buy and make on the night plus the lovely Theo (of the Shellac Sisters and a genius knitter) will be hosting the mini workshop for us. Make a cute knitted button hole corsage to wear with your vintage finds. Details tba soon!
Joining us is Frill Seekers Vintage with their beautiful wares...from the roaring 1920's to the electric 1980's...rails upon rails of quality vintage apparel!
It's the perfect way to recycle as these frocks have still a whole life of ware to give!
And to finish off the look the talented Claire Cross of Claire Hair will be transforming your locks into gorgeous vintage dos. No need to book just pop in and make an appointment on the night!
