Charity Fashion Event!!!!!!!!!!

I'm getting involved in a charity event to help raise funds for the Yorkshire Cancer centre. There will be a fun & glamorous fashion event! on Friday the 24th of September organized by the lovely Michelle Storer & hosted by fashion stylist Suzy Shepherd! Tickets are £5 why not come along? & show your support... I'll have a design stall there too, 20% of my sales will be donated to the charity & you can also win a load of my goodies that I've donated for the raffle too!:) see poster attached for more info. It will be a fab night!

If you can't make the event you can show your support by making a donation, or by donating a gift/ suitable prize for the raffle. For more information please contact Michelle via email at: michandgeoff@gmail.com

A bit of background information:

Dear Supporter

‘10 to the Power of 10 Challenge’ - in memory of Jane Rose 

Michelle Storer has organized ‘An evening of Fashion and Fizz!’, on 24th September at St Margaret’s Hall, Horsforth, Leeds to help boost funds for the '10 to the power of 10 challenge' in memory of Jane Rose. Jane was a patient at both Cookridge and then Yorkshire Cancer Centres in Leeds for many years and many of her friends will be supporting this event.

Can you please help Michelle to maximise this fundraising initiative by providing a gift or suitable prize for the Grand Raffle which will take place on the night?

The Yorkshire Cancer Centre at the St James’s Institute of Oncology is the biggest purpose-built cancer centre in Europe. Our £10 million Appeal will further enhance facilities in this 21st century cancer treatment centre, ensuring that our Yorkshire cancer patients receive world-class care. All funds raised from this appeal is will be used directly to benefit patients at the Cancer Centre.

The Appeal will fund:

*Specialist Radiotherapy Medical Equipment -
IMAT (intensity modulated arc therapy) that delivers accurate and high dose radiotherapy to the tumour site whilst preserving healthy tissue.

*Research and development -
that will ensure we are leading the way to prevent, diagnose and
treat cancer.

*‘Home from home’ comforts -
that make such a difference to patients on wards and in other
departments when they are undergoing treatment.

*Patient environment through the Arts and Gardens project -
therapeutic projects that will uplift, calm and have a remedial effect on
our cancer patients.

I think we can all agree that this is such an important charity as cancer has effected many of us. I'm really honored that Michelle as asked me to get involved with the event,  it's such an amazing & admirable thing she is doing & it's really moving, she's an inspiration. So I'm going to drum up as much support as I can in the next few weeks to help support the charity too!

It feels a bit like autumn today, I actually wore a coat for the 1st time in ages... so I thought I'd share on the blog today one of my autumn/winter designs from an existing collection.

Hope you like it:)

Product Line

My little product lines keeps expanding... I seem to get lots of requests for new product from stockists & customers, I try & take everything on board (I really do appreciate all your honest comments & feedback)

I just trialled my Etched Floral design in black & white & it's proven to be really popular! so I'm super excited to announce that in the next month I'll be launching the matching apron & oven mitt in this design too as part of my autumn/winter collection (more to come on that soon). You can buy the B&W range from my online shop & from a number of select stockists in the UK.

Happy Monday everyone!

I thought I'd share some designs that I recently added to my online site. They were created a while ago for a design studio that I regularly freelance for. I thought it was time to start updating my online portfolio. I have tons & tons of patterns, so I always find it really hard picking designs to show online.

Hope you like them!?

I recorded my 1st ever podcast recently arranged by my lovely PR company happy4pr.com. It was quite fun to do, the podcast is about my 'Stitched' exhibition which is currently running at The Butterfly Rooms

To listen to the podcast & view the gallery slide show just click here It's quite funny & strange listening to your own voice! I sound very young & probably say 'erm' a bit too much. Hope you like it!?

Here are some images taken from the podcast.

Gorgeous Ceramics!

I thought I'd share some photographs that I took of these gorgeous ceramic cups from habitat. I'd bought the larger mug myself & my lovely mum got me the super cute cup & saucer for my birthday. I just love the print, the gorgeous use of colour & placement of the design too.

Thought they would provide a bit of inspiration for everyone:)
