On Monday I spent the morning optimising my use of twitter with the wonderful G who I do lots of markets and art sessions with, so all you little tweeters can follow. I’m at @rubynblue if you fancy following my exploits on there. It was run by Mark of @BestDadICanBe . He writes a funny blog about his exploits as a father and is great fun to have as a tutor. Something I always think about when I am running sessions… Who wouldn’t want to have some fun while learning?
The posters for the new courses are ready, and we’re enjoying the process of booking people in, don’t forget you can book them on Eventbrite and all the details are here.
Monday night I spent with the little gang at Totally Locally Guisborough , the shop local scheme I co-run. We have the meetings at a gorgeous rustic little pub at the edge of the town; The Anchor. What a great place, with open fires and photos of sports teams (many of whom are still in the pub, but a bit older). We’re in the final stretch of the Spring market planning and it’s really exciting, with a ‘maypole’ theme of bright colours and flowers, the market is going to be a real spectacle, so we can’t wait. Alongside this, we’re running a ‘Magic Tenner’ campaign , which highlights the positive effect it has on our community if every adult just spends an extra tenner with a local independent business.. all good stuff!
The basics of both the markets and the courses are now ready so I’m back to some making, at the moment I’m onto some cheeky embroidery tweaks, taking old embroidered images and updating them.. Take a look below.
These will soon be making their way to a market stall of shop, so I’m off to continue with them. Keep on with the craftiness all you makers.. Miki
