Mother of pearl buttons

Do you like using mother of pearl buttons in your work? I love them, especially the small ones. Did you know that Handmade Happiness stocks old buttons like these? Penny Baker has put them into packs. 30 smaller ones or 20 larger ones for just £3 a pack.

Yesterday I talked about workshops in Handmade Happiness. Suggesting I'll run the workshops every day the shop is open was a bit hasty. I will be led by demand.

Today I'll mention another idea and see what the response is. I like the idea of the American quilting bee. Women (or men) sitting round the table working on a joint project. Traditionally  it would be on a wedding quilt.  I'm not suggesting quilting. I'm suggesting that anyone who wants to make in the company of others can draw up a chair round the table in Handmade Happiness and work on their own items while sharing the chat and the tea and biscuits. We can talk about the possibility of a joint project for the future. Wednesday afternoons would be a good time for me. Sorry but no unaccompanied children.

The shop re-opens this Wednesday January 2nd. 10-5.
