Crochet drop in sessions

by izabela

Recently I decided to try and offer crochet sessions in our Craft Coop Shop in Maidenhead, you can make something really easy or a little bit more complicated, you can get help with your own project that you are stuck with. Every Wednesday morning from 10:30am to 12:30pm I am there working on my crochet projects.

The choice is for now:

Make cute crochet bow – the bow can be great addition to mittens or a hat or you can make it as hair clip or anything you like – Β£6 per session, materials and all the help included

>Short Fingerless Mittens With A Bow

Make a crochet flower lariat – flower itself can be sewn onto a scarf, a hat or made into a brooch, but we can make a crochet lariat that can play a role of skinny scarf in the colder days – Β£6 per session, all materials and help included.

And for next week, 1st July Wednesday 2015, from 10:30am to 12:30pm, I would like to invite you all to make this useful tea light holder that can be hung in the garden when partying outside in the Summer – Β£10 per session, all materials and help included

tickets to country living christmas fair to give away

by izabela

as an exhibitor (my first that big event) I got few complimentary tickets to give away to my friends and customers, few went to friends, few to customers and I thought that maybe some of you would like to go and see how things work or just go and browse for gifts or gifts ideas, The Country Living Christmas Fair takes place in Business Design Centre in Islington from 30th October until 3rd November, the tickets are to be used any day but Saturday (2nd November)

Country LIving Christmas Fair

so if you would like to visit the fair on wednesday, thursday, friday or sunday please leave a comment under this post and spread the world, the more people know – the better πŸ™‚

there is a chance to have more than one entry, but you need to share it on your blog, fb page or twitter and to make sure i have seen it you can use tag #izabelamotyl on twitter, or send me a message with the link to your blog post (fb posts are a mystery to me, but you can try to tag me too @izabela motyl πŸ™‚ or share it with me on pm)

i will have a little draw on sunday 20th october, no idea what time, so let’s say you have time until end of saturday, some late entries may also be considered πŸ™‚

Craft Central Gets Hitched – review

by izabela

i have spent great four days at the event

firstly admiring the quality of british made wedding themed products

and then actually exploring artists and their skills

and lastly i am so happy to spend this time around such beautiful people weirdly feeling so close to complete strangers

almost like i knew them for ever πŸ™‚


i have to say that we (our room where we were exhibiting) were definitely the most friendly bunch or at least i was left with that good vibes every day…

i fell in love with amazing jewellery by Michelle

you can find out more about her and her jewellery on her website Michelle Oh

i also admire the fabulous fine wire jewellery by Rina Tairo he crochets, knits and wraps beautiful stones in fine silver and gold wire, just so amazing that i could not take my eyes off them

We Make London

by izabela

I make London, we make London, they love made London… we all love handmade London so we are now trading at Old Spitalfields Market. I think that place just gives this nice feeling to all the shopping fever, you go through stalls, find things that are retro, handmade, or just so unique that you don’t want to leave…

I am there once a month with Designers Makers, but also started trading with We Make London. I know that the weather isn’t really that bad yet, so my mittens aren’t that first need purchase, but it is worth trying them on, as the wool I am using now is really nice and soft. So if you are around, please do visit πŸ™‚

Thames Festival and I

by izabela

last weekend I went to trade at We Make London at the Thames Festival and had such an amazing day, last year the weekend was quite cold and wet, but this year… oh my… the day was perfect (i mean saturday πŸ™‚ as this was the day of my trading) the sun, lovely neighbours traders people coming and buying and commenting, i feel i am doing something right for a change.

and if you are anywhere near old spitalfields market this coming saturday or on sunday anywhere near caledonian road in islington, please do look for me and have a little chat, or maybe stay for longer πŸ™‚ saturday is the designers/makers monthly market and on sunday there is cally festival where we make london is trading all the beautiful handmade creations and you are all welcome to come.
