It's raining cats and needle felted dogs
The question that we are all asking ourselves at the moment...... how can be there be any more rain left to rain!
I think like everyone, we are thoroughly fed up with gloomy rain clouds overhead and giant puddles underfoot!
So it was with great excitement that we opened our latest delivery from Japan, full of gorgeous Japanese needle felting supplies, it was like a box of sunshine appearing on our doorstep!
After taking some inspiration from the book "Dogs" I decided to spend my wet weekend stabbing (I mean needle felting) my very own little welsh terrier, and even if I do say it myself I am quite pleased with the results - not bad for a first attempt and my damp days off rescued by fun crafting! result!
So, with the prediction for more rain and the school holidays looming, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you all to our very own (indoor) crafty event days - Button Day and Felt Day!
Pop the dates in your diaries now - Button Day is running on Saturday 28th July and Felt Day will be on Saturday 29th September!
Throughout Button Day there will be Button themed "make and takes" - suitable for all ages - whether your 5 or 105! From just £3 per person per project, our selection of brand new make and takes will inspire and excite you! Projects include a felt button penny purses, button coasters and button heart hangers!
You can spend some well deserved "me-time" at the Button Jewellery Work Station or enter our Button Card Making competition. (We have extended the closing time until 3pm on the day!)
There will also be a chance to add to our giant Button Mural and there may even be some buttony refreshments on offer as well!
So, how about coming along to a day where rain doesn't matter, where even if it tips down there is still the opportunity to spend some fun crafting time with family and friends or make some new friends around a table of buttony and felty goodness.
Come join in the fun - in store, at The Button Company and The Eternal Maker's home - 41 Terminus Road, Chichester PO19 8TX (01243 775462) (any time between 10am and 5pm).
