Here with the Menders we’re just a teensy bit fussy about the materials we provide at our craft parties whether it’s for a very special hen, baby shower or birthday party. When groups are large or there are a real mix of skills, the best embellishments and fabrics can provide everyone with a real creative buzz.
As so many of our most popular workshops involve sewing the fabrics are an essential choice when making decisions what to take to a party. Having worked with textiles and design for many years, Bee’s experienced in spotting the most beautiful of prints and patterns. Keeping it contemporary but with a vintage edge is the secret and there’s now so many suppliers we are spoiled for choice. Our quilt making parties are our most popular and everyone loves the fabrics we bring.
For the fascinator making, we also know that many of the hens want to make something really wonderful and wearable. This is the time to have the very best in materials and that’s exactly what we’ve done. Lots of interesting names to play with; sinamay, crin, veiling, they all conjure up beautiful and sculptural creations.
For our Picture Books, Katy is the queen and she makes sure that the books are professionally bound with all that entails. It’s a world with a long heritage and we really proud that we’re the only craft providers that can boast of such a talent!No comments
