A Crafty New Collaboration

26 Sep

Following on from what I was saying the other day about the crafting community, I had the pleasure of meeting some of Bristol’s finest this evening.

The lovely Amy of Purple Thread Designs was holding a launch event at a local arts centre cafe this evening so I popped along to meet her and check out her amazing cross stitch kits. I’m really impressed with her designs and may have invested in one to keep me busy on those occasions when I am feeling a bit monstered out but still have an urge to craft.

Amy had set up a bit of a sewing corner and was encouraging passers-by to get stitching. I settled down with a cuppa and got chatting to fellow fabric artist and softie maker Emily Taylor of Eejits Toys. I stumbled across her creations a while ago on facebook and swiftly fell in love with them.

It was great to meet some like-minded folks in a relaxed setting and I’m really glad I went along. The three of us got to chatting and have floated the idea of a monthly craft evening; a regular night of swapping skills and ideas. An exciting prospect which I see as a really valuable tool to keep creativity flowing and to learn new techniques.

In other news, Mr Monster made me well up with this really lovely post on his blog and also, STUFFED MAGAZINE ARRIVED!!

What a great day.
