Firstly, in conjunction with First Thursdays Cape Town, SAM (our awesome stockist on Bree St…as if you didn’t already know?) would like to invite you to join them for a drink and to pop in for the opening of their latest exhibition in the shop, “South African Bike Builders”.
And on a completely different note, it seems Handmade By Me scatter cushions really seem to be on trend this summer. Here, Essentials magazine has featured both my fly away birds and my birdy num num cushions as part of their “5 hot trends for your home” this January. Ah g’wan!
I am delighted to let you all know that Handmade by me is going to be stocked by the lovely Irish Design Shop. “Founded in 2008 by jewellers Clare Grennan and Laura Caffrey, Irish Design Shop stocks the best of Irish design including ceramics, woodwork, textiles, jewellery and furniture. We provide a selection of best quality, design-led products, all produced by makers living in Ireland.”
And so I have been very very busy lately making lots and lots napkins, and cushion covers, to sell in their two lovely stores in Dublin. They are also planning to showcase some of my products at the Re-dress Better Fashion Initiative, which is an organisation dedicated to promoting better fashion practice, and is on until the 29th of April.
Here are a few pics of some of the napkins I’ve been working on…
