March Craft Retreat

Plans and samples are whizzing ahead for our fab craft retreat in March, menus planned, shopping ordered and samples made, jut a few finishing touches to add to the umpteen ways we intend to alter these fab books

It took some doing but I finally summoned up the courage to take my Stanley knife to these old novels to surprise anyone fool enough to be tempted to pick them up to read!

Here's the inside of the red book and here's the front of the blue one

Janet's alteration took on a life of it's own as it became a very personal memory of special people in her life

We've many more ideas for altering books so if you are booked on to the Craft Retreat, start looking for books to alter. If you've got a book in mind with a particular theme ie gardening, food, medical science etc, let us know and we can start collecting our stamps together! Really looking forward to this retreat, a chance to catch up with old friends and meet some new!

If you do fancy joining us, I think we have just one place left, so email us for details.

Hope to see you there
X Michelle
