The Tea Party

Last weeks tea party was wonderful, we managed to haul 24 deckchairs from the Forbury to make up the numbers of seating already borrowed from Picnic and our own chairs, bake an excessively large number of cakes, lay out the china, stroke yarn hand dyed locally by Skein Queen, see the first prints of the new book, Vintage Gifts to Knit by Susan Crawford, marvel at Felix‘s marvellous Tea Museum, try on Emma Bradbury‘s new pieces and scatter Patchwork Butterfly‘s cushions around.

For those who missed it, here in pictures is a brief run through of our evening.

Tea Museum being created

Even Councillors love a cup of tea and cake

Thank you to all the Outcasts, you made a fab evening, baking, leaflet designing, serving teas and a special thanks has to go to Melanie Nabarro who organised the event and was the hostess with the mostess. Thank you as well to everyone who came, we made quite a bit of money for Amnesty from donations for cups of tea.

The excitement has not ended there though as the big news (other then that we are working with them in September) is that Jacksons is now stocking A Stitch in Time Vol 1 and Vintage Gifts to Knit both by Susan Crawford. Pop in and have a look, the books are in the haberdashery/ wool department.

afternoon tea with the knitters

We had a fantastic weekend with the knitters at the afternoon tea party. Ysolda was launching her new book and the outcasts were the hostesses. Skeinqueen and the talented Emma Bradbury were showing their wares too. There are more photos here courtesy of Ysolda and even more here courtesy of alabamawhirly

We loved having the outcasts round and all their guests including Ysolda and Sarah, they are very talented.

Emma Bradbury is a dark horse, we have just found out she was runner up in a Crown competition for stencil design (design below).
