We love Vintage

August 20, 2010 at 11:45 pm | Posted in Events, Fairs, Workshops | 3 Comments

We met such lovely people on our Vintage at Goodwood bunting and bikini making workshops, and had a rather delightful time at the festival as a whole. So many fabulous outfits, hairdos, cars, caravans, shops… and even a few downpours didn’t put the mockers on proceedings.

Many thanks to all the people who joined us in the Upcycling tent, deep gratitude to the brilliant volunteers who helped us all weekend and cheers to Louise for inviting us. We were impressed by the beautiful bunting and bikinis that were made – there were some really creative ideas, and a lot of fun was had by all. We were all exhausted afterwards, but it was well worth it!

Katy Gooding screen printed this great bunting for her Exeter based cake business Katycakes.

Our lovely volunteers helped her to appliqué beautiful cake designs for both ends of the bunting.

Daisy made some pretty bunting and printed her name on it. Here she is with her Mum and the finished bunting, after getting fancy hairdos at Beauty Box.

  1. What an event, I hope you have come back down to earth and got over your tiredness. If I said ‘bottle top’ magnetised pin cushions I think you’ll be able to place me. If ‘Vintage’ happens again next year and if you want some extra help please contact me. I’ve been sewing since the age of 10 which was quite a long time ago. Best wishes, Liz

  2. Thanks for being so much fun. I really enjoyed helping out with the bunting and hope to be back as a volunteer again next year. Hope to see you all again soon too!

  3. Thanks for all your help! It was really lovely to meet everyone and hope to see you all next year, gillian xx
