18th July. make a date with "hand made"

This month our monthly craft market will be a week early.
That's so you don't have to miss out on tons of gorgeous hand made goodies!
We're off to the Indie Tracks festival to host our first festival workshop at the end of the that's why we're going to be a little bit earlier then usual. It's back to normal in August: Saturday 29th.
So hope to see you soon.

last chance to get something new...

This coming Tuesday, 7th of July we'll be packing our buttons,trims and sewing kits as we say goodbye to 93 feet east. Thanks to everyone that came to our "fancy something new" cloths swaparama and for the nice people at 93 feet east for having us there.It was fun but it wasn't the right venue. Even though we love Brick Lane and 93 feet east it didn't quite take off. We gave it a go and we will be back in future with more fun events. Cloths swapping is something we're in favour of and part of our make do and mend,recycling ethos so expect to see us again pushing the message!
