The last two weeks and the Christmas window at J&B The Shop

 Dear All
Here is a little update from us both here at J&B The Shop London
Well what can I say its been incredibly busy here of late but fun has been had.
We have both been supa busy in our studios making our work and also festive items for our Christmas window which we put up last Thursday and thanks to everyone who came by on Sunday to see it and for all your lovely comments!
We had a lovely and busy Sunday on Columbia Rd last week it was buzzing. The Sun was out and so were all the lovely flower sellers and gorgeous lazy Sunday people with there dogs and bunches of cut flowers.

I was at the selvedge Winter fair on the 10th of November at Chelsea Old Town Hall.
What a lovely day this was,  it was very busy and the location is just beautiful thanks to all who visited me and I could hardly talk by the end of the day as I had been chatting non stop!

And now to last Saturday and my last workshop for 2012
I held the workshop at the create space in Bethnal Green a new venue i have found to run my workshops in.
It really is a great locations close to the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood
We had a very very busy day as the workshops was full we had visitors from America and also Malmo in Sweden.
My Mum Primmy also at the last minute came down and ran the workshop with me so this was an extra treat for all who attended.

My 2013 workshop dates are now up and as you will see I am traveling around the country quite a bit next year running the workshops and I am even going to France in September
Don't miss the next workshop with both me and my Mum Primmy in Cowslip workshops in Cornwall in May and We have just added two extra days to this workshop.

Please visit the link below for all the dates.

 Altered Objects workshop London November 17th

Here we are outside the shop on Sunday me and Buddug
 Christmas really has arrived at 158a Columbia Rd
Again this year we have gone for a simple white window and Buddug found us some amazing branches that have been flocked in pale blue and white they are very pretty.
So we have tied them in a bundle with some old lace pieces.
We then have our new lights draped around the window frame and all our little decorations hanging  scattered all over.
And yes once again the wool bunting is on show outside

 We look forward to seeing you on the run up to Christmas and we will have some new items being added to our online shop regularly so you do not miss out if you cant make it to London

All the very best wishes to you all
