Spring forward

Well, the clocks went forward last weekend and doesn’t it make a difference!  More daylight hours to do all the things we’ve been putting off and hopefully a bit of sunshine to do them in.  I’m getting this blog post down now because I know that, come tomorrow evening (given my inability to keep myself clean) I will be up to my elbows in printing ink after the first day of Linda Paris’ Print and Stitch workshop.  I can’t wait to get started and I’ll keep you updated at the weekend on progress so far. Then on Tuesday we’re going to be putting some stitch to fabric.  We still have room to squeeze you in if you want to come.

Saturday sees the opening of our first Vintage Fair of the year which runs from 1st – 12th April.  It always amazes me how many things are there that I have to restrain myself from buying.  If I got my act together I could probably fill my own stand.  For any fan of all things vintage it’s like an Aladdin’s cave of treasures: china, clothing, books, records, furniture, jewellery – the list is endless.  Come and see for yourself.  Open every day except Sundays.

Our next workshop will be the one tutored by Rosie James on 6th May and we still have places but they’re filling up fast.  Likewise the ones led by Cas Holmes, Hilary Beattie and Sylvia Paul.  If you’re interested in those and our summer workshops (Ruth Singer and Bobby Britnell) see our Workshops page for more details and information on how to book.
