What are your Summer Plans, Tam?


Holy Smoke! Do you know when things just get a little on top of you? And you feel like you are running, just to stay still?? Yep, that’s me… I feel I’ve been very quiet on all my social channels at the moment but that’s not because I’m doing nothing interesting enough to post about its actually that I’ve been too busy to sit down!

So, I made myself today… an update for you folks, so that you know what is going on and where to find me over the summer. Of course always available online for any special gifting needs!




Bloom in the Park- June 2nd

Who is going to bloom? My two loves meet, gardens and craft! Finally, it all comes together! I’ll be attending on Friday June 2nd. I’ll be in DCCI craft tent and will be doing a feltmaking demonstration session on behalf of the National Guild of Feltmakers “Feltmakers Ireland”. It’s a wonderfully welcoming craft organization (even if I say so myself, I’m a previous chairperson and still a member and try to help them out by volunteering at these events every so often). So come along, watch our demo, maybe pick up a few lovely bits of Irish craft too- in between browsing all those lovely gardens!



June Fest, Newbridge- June 5th

I’ll have my pop-up gazebo on the main street of Newbridge as part of the June fest bank holiday celebrations. I love the yarn bombing that goes on along the river there each year. There will be a carnival atmosphere, with music and street entertainment all day. I’ll be selling my wares and hoping that it stays sunny.
