It Is A Packed Week at Eau Brink Studio
Our Week started yesterday at Wymondham where we had our final day with the Norfolk Makers where we finished after two weeks of exhibiting and selling.
Now for the stocktaking and making to replace sold items which takes time but gives me time to reflect on what to make next.
We will be returning to Wymondham at the end of October for the Christmas one.
Talking of making. I have been dyeing threads for some time for my own personal use but have been putting them in my shop too. Now I am going to add them to the website in box sets. Just got to sort out boxes for them. Which is Mondays job. I am getting a bit fed up with putting them into little plastic bags. I am hoping to get them on line by the end of this week.
Tuesday I will be in my shop all day. Giving it a good clean and perhaps moving a few things around too. If your in the area pop in and say hello.
Maybe take a look around and see the new cushion kits. They make great gifts.
I will print off some sheets for the workshops that are planned for the rest of this year and for 2022. So you can pick on up whilst your visiting. We almost have a full programme. Just got to chase a couple of tutors for a little bit more information for their workshops to go live.
Talking of going live of course I will be going live on Tuesday evening again at 7pm. I am going to show you how to free motion stich flowers using soluble film. Using the old Bernina machine so you can see how it is set up. If you join me please do say hi and ask questions. With last weeks test we did get some sort of alert come up over the video but we think we have now switched it off.
See I told you its a packed week at Eau Brink Studio.
Wednesday its an early start for me as I am off to the NEC to a trade show. I am hoping there will be a few fabric suppliers there as well as trimmings. I want to get some fancy bias bindings in the shop as I love using them for my peg bags. I will also look at what else there may be that will be of benefit to us all.
Thursday is a day for me to go and learn something new. I am attending Caroline Hyde Browns workshop for the day and will hopefully be booking her into Eau Brink Studio for 2022. I am looking forward to this one.
On Friday we have our first card making workshop with Zena. Here workshops are initially aimed at beginners. All the kits and equipment are supplied so all you need to do is book in and turn up. For more information just click on this link https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/napkin-art-card-with-zena-landeryou/ She still has space available.
In the afternoon I will be in the shop as well as Saturday and Sunday.
Next week I am meeting with a rep from Irene and Lewis fabrics to see what we can do to get these lovely fabrics into the shop.
Irene and Lewis fabrics are a British company who use pre shrunk cottons for their designs. Many of the designs are contemporary so your quilts and makes have a fresh upbeat feel to them.
They also do jelly rolls which I love to use in many of my makes such as the peg bags and some cushions.
