At the weekend I was luckily invited to attend a little crafting workshop with Hillary’s Blinds and The Crafty Hen for the final stop of their Craft Roadshow in Glasgow. It was hosted by the ever-so-fabulous team at Joe Blogs, who put on some of the best events I’ve attended in my time spent blogging!
After a bit of a disastrous time trying to get parked in what felt like the busiest car park ever I headed (read: sprinted) down to the Butterfly & Pig tearooms on Bath Street. I’d visited the pub part of the Butterfly & Pig before but never the tearooms, and after seeing the beautiful decor and sampling some AMAZING cake I know I will definitely be heading back for a spot of high tea as soon as possible.
For the event itself we were tasked with making our own little notebook cover and 3D bird using the gorgeous fabrics from Hillary’s latest range. Despite being a student on a fashion related course my sewing skills leave a lot to be desired – I should really get practising! To be fair I thought I’d be a lot worse, and despite my little bird leaving that day requiring some extensive surgery I managed to fix him up when I got home. I’m sure my cat will love him!
One of the best things about events is getting to meet new people and catch up with blogging friends too, so it was great to spend the afternoon getting crafty and having a good ol’ chat with some fab people! Events like these always remind me how thankful I am for starting my blog as it’s opened up so many new paths for me and led to some amazing friendships that I couldn’t imagine myself without. I maintain that there should be a meet-up soon however I take no responsibility in organising it as we would all just end up at a cat cafe – not that that’s always a bad thing!
Once again, a massive shout out to the lovely team at Joe Blogs network for putting on another great event. I can’t wait for the next one in Glasgow, especially considering that burgers have been mentioned…
