Two day stitch retreat

Craft Sanctuary
Two days spent in a rural manor house in beautiful Oxfordshire (UK), sampling all of its luxury facilities, and experimenting with stitching techniques throughout with the help of tutors. Ah, bliss.

That’s Craft Sanctuary – an exclusive luxury stitching getaway hosted by Sew and So. Come to its Summer Edition, 2-4 August, and you’ll also hang out with Genevieve!

Bee hoopla at Craft Sanctuary

In her workshop you’ll stitch an updated version of our popular Amber Bee pattern, master how to frame your work in the hoop, and fall in love with cross-stitching onto evenweave. And who could blame you – that honeycomb patterned fabric is just the cutest!

Right now, Craft Sanctuary is offering £50 off if you book before 13th June. See you there, mischief maker?

Bringing the mischief to the show

Floss & Mischief at Spring Knitting & Stitching Show 2016 560px

Last week, we packed up Mischief HQ and travelled down to London (UK) for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show.

In a fit of mischievousness, we designed our stand to look like a super awesome vending machine! It had pretend buttons, coin slot and everything. Powered by Genevieve (above), with a guest appearance by Mr X Stitch, the machine got lots of attention, laughs and coffee fuel-ups.

We were thrilled by how many stitchers played along – *high five* if you were one of them! A massive thanks to everyone who visited us, it was a real pleasure to meet you and chat.

Now, if only we could make a cross-stitch kit vending machine happen for real… Crowd-funding campaign, anyone?!

Crafty Fox Market 2015

Crafty Fox Christmas Markets 2015

It’s baaaaack! And even better than before.

If you’ve never been to a Crafty Fox Market, please know that it’s one of our favourite events. In fact it’s probably the highlight of our festive season. It’s got music, cake, booze, workshops and tons of amazing makers to shop from. Seriously – what’s not to like?!

We’re celebrating Small Business Saturday by popping up in person at Crafty Fox Market in Brixton (London, UK) on 5th December, 11am-5pm. Come meet us and put a face to a name!

You’ll also find us a few days later, at Crafty Fox’s special night market at the Museum of London Docklands (London, UK) on 8th December, 4-9pm. Talk about perking up a dull Tuesday after work!

See you there, mischief maker.

We’re thrilled to be back at the glorious Farnham Maltings for their annual festival of textiles, Thread, on 25-26 September.

The marketplace will be bustling with artisan fabrics, haberdashery, handcrafted textiles, and our newest cross-stitch kits. You can also listen to expert talks, participate in a range of workshops, see demonstrations by local guilds and be inspired by exhibitions of contemporary textile work.

Tickets allow entry to both days of the festival. We can’t wait to touch all the things! See you there, mischief makers.
