The Skip Sisters!

How lovely it was, whilst doing our book signing in Woodbridge on Sunday, to meet one of the founder members of the Skip Sisters, Edori Fertig.  Nic and I were absolutely thrilled that Edori purchased a copy of our book too!
Edori is on the left of this photo.  They look like they are having a great time - and we just love their ethos!  A group of like minded women, who met learning how to make felt and who shared a passion for finding old discarded pieces and creating something wonderful and new from them.

Here are just a few of the beautiful items they have created as part of their shared passion.

Edori's Royal Wedding cushion!
 What a fab pincushion!
Of course, tea time has to be catered for!

Beautiful work on display, at the Dulwich Art Fair in 2008
 The Skip Sisters have a pop up shop each Christmas ..where they sell all of their original work.
And this year is no exception.....even the poster advertising the event is fab!
If you are in London over the next couple of weeks, and get the chance, do go and say hello - I'm sure they'd be delighted to see you!
Isn't it just brilliant how a shared passion for craft can bring people together.  If ever proof were needed of the power of crafting, then surely the Skip Sisters must be it!
