I’ve just spent a glorious couple of days walking a teeny bit of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal path with my Bestie and my God-Daughter! On their last night in glorious South West Wales we took a glass of wine into The ThreadShed and created some pretty cool T-shirts. Their design choices were penguins galore for my God-Daughter and a little tribute to 1970s band Sweet for my glam rock loving Bestie! I absolutely love sharing my gorgeous pink ThreadShed with my customers but sharing it with important people was pretty special! (In fact it was a bit of a Blockbuster!!!😄❤️)
It’s so sweet when loved up couples choose a visit to the ThreadShed Fresh East to celebrate something special. I’ve hosted a few couples celebrating their anniversary and this fabulous couple came along to celebrate their one year anniversary … their designs were very different but each left with a T-shirt they were proud of! Many congratulations to them and I hope they come back and celebrate year 2 with me too ❤️
Well I’ve been having a pretty fun time in The ThreadShed over the holidays with lots of lovely visitors getting all arty farty …
First up was the very lovely Emily who enjoyed designing a cute tee for her little sister…
And just as Emily was leaving this gorgeous pair of holiday-makers arrived. They were visiting the area with their mummy and daddy, who very gratefully snuck off for a scrummy lunch, at our fabulous village pub, the Freshwater Inn, whilst the children enjoyed being T-shirt designers …
Both sets of visitors wrote in my brand new “Leave Me a Beautiful Message” book! I must remember to ask all my customers to do this because, after all, life needs to be filled with beautiful messages don’t you think?
One of the things I just love about getting ‘arty farty’ to design your own T-shirt is that each and every T-shirt leaving the ThreadShed is utterly unique and personal to the visiting designer. Holidaymakers come to me with a headful of ideas and together we play with online images, and use the Silhouette software, to turn their raw ideas into great T-shirt designs.
This week a father and son team turned their back on simple stock images and instead drew their own images. Each individual drawing represented an activity during their holiday in glorious Pembrokeshire. There were drawings of their Airbnb jet plane accommodation (complete with a PlayStation in the cockpit), a fun game of football golf, a kayaking adventure through caves, and of course a visit to The ThreadShed, and all were were drawn by the super bright and creative 7 year old holidaymaker and his Dad. The images came straight out of his imagination and a stack of coloured pencils.
Now that’s the way to remember a great holiday huh?
I recently had a fabulous morning with a couple of bright sparks visiting the ThreadShed. A young holidaymaker and his cousin came to an ‘arty farty’ design your own T-shirt workshop. They both had a head full of creative ideas and designed some gorgeous T-shirts around their much adored pets – so Copper the pony and puppies Daisy and Libby are now emblazoned on some colourful and unique personalised T-shirts being worn by some very happy, smiley, creative kids!
Oh and if you want happy smiley creative kids too then book them in at The ThreadShed Fresh East where they can choose from a huge choice of creative experiences.
Over the holiday period our Freshwater East T-shirts have been snapped up by lots of people to give to friends and relatives as gifts. We know for sure that some ended up in Australia and Hawaii but we also know some have just gone on a little holiday.
Here is one happy T-Shirt currently on holiday in Malaga.
We love to see our creations all around the world so do send us your pics … and we really do think that Freshwater East is probably the best beach in the world ❤️
Here at Trashcan Emporium we just love a happy collaboration. Quite often people have some wonderful ideas which we can tweak a little to bring their ideas alive. A young entrepreneurial friend of ours is designing an alternative T-shirt brand called Asbo Clothing. He approached us with a rudimentary sketch of an image he wanted for his range. Lee got creating and we think the result of this collaboration is pretty cool.
Big shout out to Conski and wishing you good luck with your new venture!
