We've popped up!

Our window display is now on show at Craft Central - visible 24 hours a day from St Johns Square, Clerkenwell. We spent all of yesterday window dressing and making signs. I loved the way the sun shone through Xtina's bunting and made these shadows as we worked.

And Mr Woo made a special appearance, keeping an eye on Linda's stick-o-rock bolsters and gillian's naughty kitty...

We spent a long time hand stitching our Souvenir Shop sign so it was just right. The letters are sewn into an old, faded canvas door curtain. It is such lovely fabric and as we sat on the floor with our legs tucked under it's crispy swathes as we sewed, we shared memories of bungalows, caravans and summer days with our nans.

As well as the window, we have a display in the foyer. The display cabinets are amazing feats of engineering, jutting out of the wall and floating across the foyer. I had fun making some mini bunting and finding a use for my shell collection.

The 'Souvenir Shop' will be open for sales for one day only on May 8th running alongside our workshops.
