A wonderful Baby Shower at The Makery

Posted on August 06, 2014 by The Makery | 0 comments

It was a real shower of thought, love and support. A creative treat, a giggle, a reunion, and a marking of a moment.

Last Sunday afternoon we hosted the most wonderful baby shower and were so impressed by the creativity and effort invested in making this a really beautiful event we thought we would share with you.

Organised by Moira for her sister Kez, the event was top secret and the expectant mum was lured to The Makery by her husband under the guise of a super baby sale! How duped she was!

Kes was so surprised, delighted and overwhelmed by the beautiful room, filled with familiar faces,delicious treats and the knowledge that everyone was there to make a beautiful baby quilt for her future son!

The next couple of hours were spent designing and making a patchwork square each. Amongst birds, hearts, and noughts and crosses, the creations took on a real sense of occasion. The feeling of support and kinship was woven into the pieces and by the end of the afternoon a set of squares were finished and ready to be joined together. 

A wonderful afternoon!

Over the next week team Makery will set to patch-working the squares together and a suitable blue backing will be added then wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string this will be then shipped to Kes with our best wishes for her future bundle of joy!



The finished masterpiece! Lucky baby!

Posted on July 25, 2014 by The Makery | 0 comments

We've been so impressed with all the stag's heads our lovely Makery friends have made from our book 'Makery' and with our Stag's Head Make Away kit we wanted to show them off in all their glory.  

From top left to right clockwise: Made by the very clever Sally Hutton; Jemima Kenchington; Louise Dunmore; Clairyland; and both at bottom by Hayley Breen. 

Have you made a Stag's Head from our book or from one of our Make Away Kits? Then please share your handiwork on our Facebook page and we will add them to the gallery.

Or are you in the middle of making a friendly stag or perhaps a unicorn or other creature, then please feel free to use the comments below to offer advice, ask questions and share ideas!

When you post let us know a bit about them, why you made them, who for and if they have a name.

(P.S this is only the first selection so if you have sent it to us then just post again so we can share again x)
