Interesting Antiques and Artefacts

At the weekend I visited Brighton for an interesting open studio - a collection of antiques, art,  mid century furniture and interesting artefacts. Everything was beautifully displayed by Alex MacArthur in an elegant 5 storey early 19th Century townhouse in Kemptown. 

I am always looking for unusual things so it's wonderful to visit these open house events to get inspiration and ideas for current projects.

NSPCC Remnant Sale

Ever wondered what happens to the small pieces of fabric left over when we make curtains and blinds? Well yesterday we held a coffee morning and remnant sale for the local community, offering beautiful designer fabrics at knock-down prices.

Most pieces were small, just enough for a cushion or footstool, and there was a lot of interest in the big jumble of trimmings suitable for quilting and patchwork. The sale was very popular and we managed to raise £411.40 which went to the NSPCC.

Thanks to everyone who came and purchased, or contributed cakes and jams for sale too.
