As you probably know, we are not doing any courses at the moment as we are moving to bigger & better premises .. it is all very exciting (and also busy at this end!) but moving is taking a bit longer than expected and this is becoming very booooring. The list of people asking for the new courses is growing…

I also learnt how to crochet – the one that uses a very small hook! There are lots of handmade things around…

Cushions….

All things handmade

I love handmade details, crafts, my mum’s linen & towels, sewing kits, ribbons, buttons, boxes within boxes, old and new fabrics and overall, I like making things. I remember my childhood helping my aunties to make embroidery for wedding dresses, the lace, the delicate beads .. I admire my mum, so talented!  she can paint ceramics & fabrics, she always knows how…

THE BEGINNING … AND THE WHY

I have decided to start my blog about my love for crafts and therefore my new business, something I never thought I would do … I worked in very demanding jobs in IT for a decade in a previous life but always loved doing arty and creative things. I grew up in an environment where things were handmade,…
