Vintaj Brass Components

Since ordering the Vintaj components in Anaheim in January, I've been waiting with great anticipation for them to arrive. They finally got here on Thursday, too late for me to do much about them! I've spent much of today pricing them up, putting them on the website and hanging them in the studio. Do visit the online shop to take a look at these beautiful charms, embellishment and findings.

I'm off to the ERTF Conference tomorrow, and will be demonstrating at the Billericay branch of Essex Handicrafts Association on Monday evening. It is being held at The Fold, starting at 8pm.

Edinburgh in April

Had a great weekend meeting up with old friends and making new ones. Went to Dunkeld and Scone today, and although it was wet it didn't deter us from having a good time. No photos as I haven't got the lead to connect my phone with my laptop.

Have had too much food, and probably too much wine, but have already booked for next year. I'm coming home by train on Monday, so it's unlikely I'll get back in time to go to Embroiderers' Guild which is a shame. We've also been making contingency plans for the trip to Istanbul which is planned for two weeks, volcano permitting.

I've booked tickets for Macbeth at The Globe in June for myself and Emily, my granddaughter, with an overnight stay at a nice hotel so we can have a bit of extra culture the following day. Really looking forward to that.

Back to the Studio on Tuesday with lots of planning to do for the opening of the new gallery in July.
