Crafty Pint & Dad Craft!

Dad Craft Collage

Oh yes, my friends. That’s the vision of a dad taking interest in crafting! My family decided to join me on a spontaneous visit to London, so I dragged them to Crafty Pint in Tooting. Of course, it didn’t take much to get my mum interested. We made some brooches together…

I also split off to do my pre-booked Christmas Card Printing workshop. What can I tell ya? It’s messy!


Eventually, I got there…


Yes, I ‘designed’ and cut out lino prints my very own self. Get me!


There was fantastic entertainment:


But my favourite moment was when a mum came over with her 8-year-old son and asked if they could join us for some sewing. ‘He’s a bit overwhelmed by it all. We just want a quiet corner.’ Yes, my darling, you can come and sew with me!

    How sweet! Your Dad and mom and then the little boy and his mom. Nice.

    Looks like a good time was had by all. I hope I can make next year’s event as I’d already booked to go to the rugby yesterday. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Now that’s what I call a wonderful crafting party! And for all generations. That’s what it’s all about. Love it.
    Ps, when I saw your first card I though the HC was a ‘HO’ and the first picture of it backwards therefore said ‘OH’ which made me chuckle, imagining that ‘ oh ‘ could have been uttered when you pulled the Lino away to reveal it. I’m easily amused 🙂

    At first glance I also thought it said HO, and it made me snort! What a lovely event, your parents look like loads of fun – and you look so much like your Dad too.

  6. How wonderful that you were, and are, able to share such fun times with your parents. Looks like a fabulous time was had by all.

  7. What a great event! You know it’s good when your parents attend (and participate!)

    How fun and festive! It’s hard to feel festive here when it is almost 40 degrees 🙁

    Lovely to see you! And the cards look brilliant. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to say hello properly, it was so busy! But glad you all had a nice time, and found the secret brooch making tables. I wanted them to be a quiet making area, so pleased the little boy and his mum found them. Thanks for all your support.
