One of the lovely visitors to our Points Of The Compass show at Craft Central recently, was photographer Vic Phillips, who took a liking to our style as it fits very nicely with his own. Here’s a selection of the photographs he took of us and our work during the exhibition. Vic’s Facebook page has more vintage inspired portraits and wedding photos with lovely retro styling.

Seaside Sisters will be celebrating our love of seaside souvenirs, haberdashery and mid-century modern design with two exhibitions this summer.

First we’re returning to Craft Central with a selling show of our work, a fine display of our fabric and ephemera inspirations, and a souvenir shop of vintage collectibles.

Then it’s off along the Thames to Medway, where our show opens on the beautiful lightship LV21. This 40 metre ship is great fun to explore and will be full of our work and installations made specifically for the spaces.

An exciting programme of workshops accompanies both shows.

Xtina is busy getting ready for her show next week and clambering over all her new stock. The first delivery of vinyl lucky tape arrived today, and next week there will be a very colourful new wrapping paper design with the same motifs. It’s fun sending out parcels when you have such nice packaging to play with! The lucky tape can transform a plain wrapping into something that looks really special. Xtina has even wrapped some parcels in newspaper and stuck them down with lucky tape, and they look really good.

The show and shop at Craft Central runs from Tue 14th to Sat 18th June. New lines are being launched during this week, including seaside and wedding themed bunting banners, the lucky tape and wrapping paper. You’ll also be able to see the full Printed Wonders range of lucky bunting, alphabet pennants, vintage fabric bags, and stationery.

Cabinet of Thrifted CuriositiesA cabinet of thrifted curiosities will display some of the paper ephemera, vintage fabric, tin & plastic treasure that inspires Xtina’s work, like a mini museum of printed wonders!

Come along and be cheered by this colourful, positive collection of textiles and paper goods. The foyer will be festooned with bunting and there will be free cake, if you’re quick!
