Festival of Thrift Darlington

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 15:43


Super exciting news everyone!

I've been invited to do a talk at the Hemingway Festival of Thrift in Darlington all about my Mobile Makery and being Chic on a Shoestring!

The talk will be from 3-4pm on Sunday 28th September...the festival starts on Saturday 27th September.

This festival is an absolute must for anyone interested in upcycling, recycling, or even cycling (!) as it's all about ways of being green, creative, and of course thrifty!

I went last year to see what all the fuss was about. I had an absolute ball and came away buzzing with inspiration. 

There are stalls, events, swaps, music, vintage stuff, making...and a wonderful restaurant where you can eat in a variety of retro vans.

If you don't have time to drop by for my talk, come anyway and join me at the Mobile Makery to fashion yourself a fab vintage-style turban as featured in my book...'Chic on a Shoestring'.  

Just bring along an old T-shirt (as large as possible) and you'll go away loooking tres glam!
