OLSA at Denbies Craft Event 27th September 2015

I am delighted that a very good friend, Jane, is going to be at Denbies Vineyard  Craft Event on Sunday 27th September, 2015 to sell some OLSA textiles and prints. These sales (run by SHOPFEST) are a regular, established monthly event  (except August) at Denbies and very popular for finding individually-crafted original gifts for friends and families (and to enjoy in your own home).  Jane is going to do two sales ( the next in October) with items specially chosen to be ideal Christmas presents   
silk – cotton cushions This beautiful pair of cushions is made from the finest silk paired with a strong upholstery cotton to make a versatile look for a modern sofa. Adorn any room with this beautiful pair of cushions in fashionable black  or buy one cushion to enhance any chair.   As well as cushions (of which more later) there will be cards, cafetiere warmers, tea cosies and original hand-prints.   Tartan throw This vintage throw is a real labour of love. the fabric was sourced the needlework stall at the Church sale in Saffron Walden, from the woman who had donated it. It is pure natural wool. I had it dry-cleaned and lined it with silk, slightly marked with tailor’s pen,  then tie-quilted it with buttons and wool. I edged in blanket stitch with a cotton Rowan thread   I almost can’t bear to let it go. Denbies is a lovely setting – an English vineyard in the Surrey Hills with its own delicious wines on offer and a welcoming cafe with delicious, locally sourced produce. We will also be selling some original hand-prints and cards. linocut of Southwold These cheerful linocuts (limited editions and hand printed on archival-standard paper)   remind everybody of summer and sell particularly well as autumn draws in. They are available custom-framed (for £50) by Darryl Nantais (who does all our work) and  mounted and backed with wood  (£25) ready for your own frame. There are a number of colour-ways and pictures available – not all will be there at Denbies but look on the website gallery for other versions. We can send out to you if you contact us and order.   DO JOIN JANE AT DENBIES BETWEEN 10-4pm and enjoy lots of good stalls, but especially OLSA....
