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 was a whole series of Record Breakers this week …
1) The youngest participant in a session = just 2 years old
2) The most participants in one session – a grandma, an auntie and two adorable children = 4 ‘arty farty’ participants
3) The most sessions on one day = 3
4) The most visitors/participants in one day = 8
5) The first time that Monty Don, of Gardeners World fame, has appeared on a T-shirt leaving The ThreadShed Fresh East
A great day – I loved it all and I really hope that there will be more record Breakers to come – after all “dedication, dedication, dedication is what you need.”
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?
The holiday season is well and truly underway here in Freshwater East and that means happy times with holidaymakers in The ThreadShed. I love working with the ideas that children and young people bring for their Tees and helping them create something that is unique and personal to them. They see their design move from laptop screen to sublimation paper and onto the heat press, and the moment of the big reveal when they pull their Tee off the heat press is simply priceless.
I had a great afternoon with these three gorgeous girls this week. Their T-shirts were inspired by kittens, unicorns, pandas, skulls, graffiti and Stranger Things Netflix show (a great programme). They were a lovely creative chatty trio with some clear ideas of what they each wanted.
All three were very happy with their final design and have made something unique and lovely to remind them of a very happy holiday in Pembrokeshire!
Top marks to Dad who booked the experience I say 😄
I had two gorgeous young visitors to The ThreadShed this week. Two holidaymakers came on an ‘arty farty design your own T-shirt’ experience with me.
They were bright, confident, lovely children with very clear ideas of what they wanted for their own tees. We had a great afternoon working up their designs together and they were both so pleased with their final designs. One T-shirt was of a golfing and sleeping theme and the other a horse and hydrangea design. They were both a delight to work with and I hope they come back and try some other ‘arty farty’ crafts with me when they next visit beautiful Freshwater East.
Don’t forget I take bookings for arty farty experiences for both children and adults. It’s always fun no matter how old or young you are ❤️
I love helping people get all ‘arty farty’ and I have such a happy time hosting creative experiences in The ThreadShed. This weekend a Mother and Son visited all the way from Connecticut in the good ole US of A and designed some fabulous Tees to celebrate Grandpa’s 99th birthday! (Fair play Grandpa that is pretty epic). Also the son was so impressed with Lee’s original artwork that he booked in to have the image tattooed on his shoulder and on his very last day in the UK too! Damn good taste that man!!!
The next day my visitors were an adorable, loved up couple, celebrating their second wedding anniversary by enjoying a gloriously sunny, long weekend in beautiful Pembrokeshire. The second anniversary is traditionally “cotton” and so what could be more perfect than making a couple of Tees in the ThreadShed huh?
Happy Monday all and another creative fun day for me ❤️
I absolutely love adding a few new T-Shirt designs to our collection! Brother-in-law came to visit this weekend and is a fan of the ‘old skool’ Tattoo style art. We found some great pieces in Lee’s drawing book in and I was able to add them onto some T-shirts for him to take back to London. Inspired by the new designs I decided it was time to make myself a new Tee too and used Lee’s flaming heart and dagger drawing that I received as my Valentine Gift this year. Instead of wearing my heart on my sleeve I can now wear it on my Tee.
Don’t forget any of Lee’s art you admire can also be added to a Tee and of course will proudly bear our unique ‘Trashcan Emporium’ label.
We also have a pretty good selection of arty Tees in the studio at the mo so why not stop by and wear your art on your Tee too!
