Spring Summer 2018
It has been a busy year so far working on bespoke requests and collaborations, taking part in our first pop up shops and developing a new range of papers. The pop up's have been a new experience for us: Attending fairs and pop ups is a great way for us to widen our network of contacts and meet our customers as well as source new suppliers. It is also a great way to see what an amazing bunch of British designers and artisans are out there producing with such great quality and attention to detail. We've also been designing new Christmas Crackers, sourcing exciting contents and adornments and experimenting with different types of paper. Trudi and I always love sourcing new blocks so we've had some fun playing with our new collections, trying out new things and we are looking forward to unveiling some new products for the festive season.
Last month we were at Wealden's Summer fair and next week we will be at Barnes Fair where the atmosphere is always buzzing, with the bands playing, the annual parade and stalls galore selling anything and everything. Its always fabulous to see so many faces old and new appear at our stand.
Block printing workshops have re-commenced. What a scorcher of a summer - just glorious! And perfect for printing - washing and drying blocks and fabrics out in the hot sunshine. The Old Rectory could not be a prettier setting with its beautiful house and extensive gardens all in bloom - all to be enjoyed whilst you take a break from printing and mull your designs over a cup of tea and slice of cake. If you've been itching to have a go, get yourself booked on one of our days and bring a friend, or come along and enjoy the chance to meet some like minded folk. If you are looking for that something different for a hen do or a special birthday this is a great way to get friends together. If you are interested in booking a taylor made printing session do get in touch with us.
Right back to the amazing sunshine and printing... over and out!
