I'm almost packed up to head up to First Thursdays tomorrow eve. Its a fannnntastic event in, on and around Kroad. Plenty of colour, craft, and creativity, class, crazy and coooool. Sew Love will be popping up a craft station in St Kevins Arcade amongst some other awesome stuff like a vintage makeover from Decadia beehive yes please! A chance to have your vintage photographed with the NZ Fashion Museum, and have a page through the latest issue of Glory Days Magazine (which I get to write the Mend & Make Do section for -yay!) and many more exciting things happening about the place. so much as always with First Thursdays, my fav inner city event!
Isn't it such a sweet joy receiving snail mail, and especially when it's been handcrafted using old vintage facts, photos and trims n things...We did a postcard making workshop at Splore back in Feb and it was so stunning seeing what people came up with. This time around its 60s inspired... Sent from the 60s...Sent to the 60s...Sent to someone who should've lived in the 60s (I know a few paisley lovers out there). Fabric, wool, embroidery & Womens Weekly 1969. Your kinda bliss? Come join us! its all free thanks to Kroad Business Association yahoo what an awesome crew putting on such awesomeness!
So I am packing up all these retro clippings and adding to it some colourful fabric, wool, embroidery thread and sequins. Ready to make the best psychedelic postcards you can imagine!
