New at Eau Brink Studio

This Month I will be launching a  whole new set of kits.
Luxury Christmas stocking
Modern print stocking

What does this mean in real time? I am looking at packaging, writing instructions and searching out fabrics.

I am hopeful this will all be in place by the end of September. so no pressure then???

So far I have looked at the Christmas stockings,  three different types of baubles, and the coin purse. I still have to look at whether it will be a good idea to include the cushions, scissor holders and other items I make using the jelly rolls of fabric.

Powertex

I am also looking into kits for Powertex. Starter kits mainly with the products you need to just get going or even smaller kits for you to have a go with it and see if it is for you.

I am sure once tried you will find a place in your crafting for it.

why am I looking at this?

Several of our customers ask me for kits or suggest me making kits to sell rather than the finished items. I have made the odd few for shows and fairs but at the Handmade Fair this time I had many many people asking for kits to give away as gifts or to have a go at making themselves. This has made me think that perhaps the time is right for them.

We will see.

Whats New?

Peggy Bonner is coming to Eau Brink Studio to teach beading techniques. Starting in October for a basic workshop to get you in the mood.

The day starts at 10 am and will finish about 2 pm.  Kits will be provided on the day and each learner will finish a small beaded decoration with a wooden cotton reel. This workshop is designed to wet the appetite so that you want to learn the more complicated designs for baubles and other items.

Beaded Decorations

Peggy is new to the area and wants to make new friends through her craft. Peggy owned a shop before her move where she taught her beading skills in regular workshops alongside running a busy shop.

I am sure that we will be able to make a number of fabulous items for our homes and as gifts with Peggy’s help.

A New Venue for Workshops have been organised for those of you reading this in the Long Sutton Area.

Silverwood, St James Rd, Long Sutton, Spalding PE12 9AU is a fabulous shopping experience with a room for workshops.

Each month I have organised to go into Silverwood and teach how to use your sewing machine for more than straight stitches. All you need is your sewing machine and a darning or embroidery foot. Threads and some fabrics. I will supply patterns and soluble film for the 3D effects.

Shibori Dyeing (tie Dye) using procion dyes is on trend this year. All dyes and some fabrics are included in the price.

Lampshade making using fabrics of your choice. The Shibori dyed lampshades work beautifully for this workshop.

Also returning is Powertex for beginners. This will include your materials to make brooches, bottles for candles, and boxes and plaques.

To book just go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/events/ and search for the workshop and date you are interested in. Whilst your rummaging around the events pages why not also look at the rest of the website to see what we get up to?

What else is new?

We now have a  YouTube channel. It is very new so please do go and take a look. Subscribe, and let me know what you think of the videos. Just go to youtube and look up anita O’Neill and you should be able to see it.

What am I working on?

PomPoms is the simple answer to that question. Hundreds of them. Which I am making cushions, pencil tops, rugs, bunting and much much more. I am amazed at how much I am enjoying it too.

I particularly love the variegated yarns. So pretty.

 

What else?

Experimental Wednesday is one of my favourite days where a lovely group has formed on the first Wednesday of every month. Now there is a second Wednesday where we will follow the same format we first started on so yo get to learn many techniques. Of course those of you in the first group are welcome to attend the second day if you want to go over anything we already covered. To book just follow the link. The first date is January 23rd and we will be working on Layers.  https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/experimental-wednesday-2-2/
