Craft activities – needlepoint

November 25, 2013

As promised, a post about a craft I love picking up (when time allows) and which is a great introduction to extending beginner sewing skills.

Craft parties with afternoon tea

October 29, 2013

The Menders know that a good hen loves her afternoon tea and there’s scarcely a craft hen party goes by when we’re not in an adorable tea salon like Metro-deco in Brighton or Tea Party in Tufnell Park sampling gorgeous delights from a crammed cake tier plate. Pretty crockery and cute tea-cups are part of […]

We carefully choose our fabrics for their colours and lovely design and they were really complimented by the hen’s and their junior guest’s summer-bright dresses. It was a lush-looking party at Drink Shop & Do and it certainly inspired […]
