Two years in Northern Ireland...

We're about to have our last 'making it' session. It has been a real joy to work with six inspired makers, their host organisations and Craft Northern Ireland funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Invest NI. 

I've uploaded a gallery showing what we've been up to and will add our October session in due course.

Thanks Alison, Eamonn, Catherine, Katie, Michelle and Diane for working so hard, driving me around and introducing me to the sights of Northern Ireland.

Thanks to Craft NI for giving me the opportunity to run the programme for two years and exceptional coordination.

And thanks to contributing guest speakers Matthew Maran, Holly Berry, Beatrice Mayfield and Charlene Mullen.

New website for Outsider

Outsider have a new website and it is a great way to see all styles and garments in the online shop.

Outsider philosophy: "Outsider was launched in 2009 with a mission statement that set the scene “Ethical fashion should just look like fashion”.   

Outsider garments can be worn and loved season after season. Good clothes do not go out of fashion. We are inspired by the items that have been in our wardrobes for years - because true style is timeless, not transient and throwaway. Our versatile day-to-evening pieces are made to the highest quality, designed to last and be loved."

Congratulations Sgt Smith!

Sgt Smith found this photo and commented:

"our original little dinosaur taken back in 2006. The model is our son, the t-shirts were designed in our shed, printed in our front room and packed at our kitchen table! We've moved on a bit since then, you don't always realise how far until you stop and think..."

I first met Sgt Smith back in the shed days. So much hard work to get to they are today.
