Etsy!

I’ve finally got myself sorted out with an Etsy Shop , if you follow through the link. There are lots of lovely bits and pieces on it including needle cases, brooches and purses that I usually take to shows, which gives you a chance to buy them if you haven’t been to any shows I’ve had my work at.

More things are going to be added soon and if you add the shop to your favourites you can keep up to date with my new listings.

New Years Class Times

Apologies for my lack of blog posts & tardiness in updating my class times page! A few weeks before Christmas I had a last-minute bride to dress for her New Years Eve wedding & my time just disappeared. When it was all done & I closed the studio doors I just need a few weeks of down time to recharge.

Anyway I will be back in the studio official on Monday the 9th January & ready to tackle new projects & explore ideas for 2017.

I will tell you all about the last-minute dress once I get pics back from my bride but it was a lovely one.

I have managed to plan some classes for the first few months & the dates & times are on https://mairib.wordpress.com/class-times/

Drop me an email if you would like to attend one of them.
