Preparing For A Crafternoon Tea

Wednesday 29 October 2014
This week, after a lovely long weekend by the sea with my little family, it's time to prepare for this weekend's Crafternoon tea!

Pretty little beach huts

I am looking forward to crafting with a lovely group of people in the original kitchens of Pickford's House in Derby.

It's been a few months in planning and the lovely folk at Derby Museums wanted a vintage style crafting workshop from me. So together we decided on a Georgian Christmas wreath inspired Crafternoon in the beautiful museum surroundings!

At the moment we have just two places left, so if you want to prepare early for Christmas drop me an email at

I know it's early for Christmas, but as most crafters know the best crafts are those prepared without any stress as early as possible.

Can't wait to share the day with you over the weekend!

See you later on,

I was honoured to feature on the Made By Mrs M site last week in her 'Day in the life' series.

Read here what a typical day is like for me as life as a Crafternoon Tea Hostess!
