Darn it ! with Tom of Holland.

I had the best time yesterday at Hope & ElvisA 'make-do-and-mend' retreat with the wonderful Tom of Holland  and his 'Visible Mending Programme'.... darning, mending and learning the finer points of Swiss Darning - a very woolly time. It was a truly enlightening workshop and gave me the opportunity to use a vintage wooden mushroom and Speedweve from my mum's sewing box. 

The class was filled with many creative ladies including  Rachelle Blondel of Ted and Agnes and the delightful Lemonade Kitty.

Louise had kindly laid on the most delicious spread of soups and goodies to keep us all going,  laid out on her beautiful vintage china. 

The Hope & Elvis studio is a joy to behold. I find a day at Hope & Elvis a complete retreat from the distractions of the outside world and always leaves me with my creative batteries recharged. Thank you Tom and Louise for a superb day.
