The Christmas Season

As the Christmas Holidays start and we are all wondering what we are permitted or not permitted to do life  still goes on.

Here at Eau Brink Studio we will close at 4pm on the 24th December and reopen for the 28th, 29th and 30th if you want anything or to call for a chat. Anita will be in the studio from 10am till 4pm. The number to call is 01553 762115. Mind you I may talk gibberish due to the excess consuming of foods.

Being the eternal optimist next years programme is up and running with the hope that we can continue to run them even with reduced numbers. All health and safety is in place including track and trace.

Our Smallholding

It is not just us that has to be careful or stay in our birds also have been put inside. Our chickens are in two large runs for their safety and we are currently constructing a polytunnel for the ducks and geese.

Poor geese have never been indoors shut up before. But as Bird Flu is on the rise we have no choice.

The sheep are not happy about this of course because it means they cannot pinch the birds food. They are rather keen on it. But they will also be curtailed ready for the new growing season as I want to get the fruit and veg plot going again with greedy sheep raiding it.

2021

As this year closed and before the new starts I will be spending time reflecting and evaluating ready to start the new year with a blast.  If you want to put anything onto our workshop programme or would like to see something new in the shop let me know and I will happily discuss it with you.

Who knows what will happen but hopefully we will all be thriving this time next year.

Good Luck everyone and thank you for all you support and assistance over this challenging year.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

It’s the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

No matter what you believe in or how you celebrate during December, I wish everyone of you reading this a very happy time.

The sun will be returning from now on and the days will be getting longer. That means more light to sew and craft in. Hurrah.

And what shall I be making? Loads of different things for the exhibitions that are coming up and some items for the Embroiderers Guild pop ups that are going to happen in the new year.

 

 

This is just a quick update for you.

We are closed now until the 2nd of January. It is family time for us. That means loads of good food and a little wine and gin.

There are still places available for the workshops with Cas Holmes, Alison Hulme and Amanda Hislop. So pop over to www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/workshops and take a look at whats going on.

Any questions just give me a call on 01553 762115

Have a fabulous holiday

There is only a Week To go till the festivities begin At Eau Brink..

What does that mean? Just 7 days to get ready for the coming year so that I can relax with my family and friends with good food and a drink or two. And it all kicks off with the burning of the yule log during the winter solstice. And that my friends means the light will be returning and the days will get longer. Hurrah!

The New year.

And what will the coming year bring? A new programme of events which include new workshops, less fairs, a new shop at Long Sutton, Experimentals first exhibition just to name a few. It will be an exciting year of creativeness.

I have a few last minute orders to complete first. If you guys want to order anything and want to save postage just come along and collect your order. I will be able to to this up to the evening of the 23rd. Then I will be closed until the new year. The website will be open as usual of course , which means you can book in for your workshops. Please note that there are new dates for the regular workshops so do check them out before calling me to ask why you can’t book. This has already happened.

From the 1st of January I will be setting up a little shop in the Craft Barn Village in Long Sutton. Where I will be putting items for sale as well as demonstrating for the coming workshops. This will help you see what is going to be happening at the workshops so you can decide if it is for you. Pop in days are also planned. There is a lovely Cafe where you can sit by the fire and slurp hot chocolate.

 

If you fancy coming to a workshop but do not want to travel to this side of Wisbech, I have a number of workshops planned for Silverwood.  Regular workshops include Shibori style dyeing, Lampshade making, and How to use your sewing machine for Free motion embroidery and cord making.  The tea shop is excellent too.

I hope you all have a great festive season with family and friends.

Schedule Appointment

What have we been up to this week then?

The Embroiderers Guild have been in making Christmas decorations ready for their stalls at St Margaret’s Church in King’s Lynn on the 24th November and in Swaffham on the 1st of December.

Items made for the Embroiderers Guild

On a personal note I have been working towards something that is way out of my comfort zone. A photo shoot. Yep I know not my thing at all but I did it for me. This is one  of the pictures for you to see what I get up to in the evenings. Though not usually dressed in this way. This picture was the dress rehearsal before the main event.

I do think it is important to get out of our comfort zones every so often and exercise is a great one to make us do that. Especially if its not the normal type of exercise.

 

Whats coming up then?

The season to be jolly is around the corner. For me that means spending time with my family eating and drinking. Toasting friends old and new. This year one friend will be absent and dearly missed but not at all forgotten.

I will be at Wymondham on the 1st December for the last Norfolk makers fair of the year. Come along to say hello. the whole of Wymondham will be open for their Winter Fest. While your there why not pop into the Big C and stock up on a few crafting items too.

The last Experimentals group meeting will be the 5th December. No need to book in just come along and we will eat Christmas goodies, Drink a toast to the end of the year and plan our next year. If your not part of this group but would like to come along anyway you will be made welcome and we will explain how the group works.
