Grandma Chic will be doing a workshop for the lovely people at COW (Creative Open workshops) upcycling, customizing and reinventing old frocks, jumpers and whatever else comes to hand! Still a bit nervous about it, but that's probably a good thing. It's all rather exciting! You can find out more about the workshops (there's some lovely things on offer! ) at http://www.creativeopenworkshops.com/

In the meantime, here's something I customized as an example....(left = before, right = after)

Here are a few more photos of the vintage fair Grandma Chic was at, taken by myself, they are mostly of our little stall....

Oops! Next time I will display the jumpers much more tidily!

Birmingham Vintage Fair

Thank you to all who came to my stall at Birmingham Vintage Fair last month. I had some lovely comments and it was great to receive such support! There was a great mix of stalls and really friendly atmosphere. A lovely day was had by all and hopefully I will be doing the next one in February. Visit http://www.birminghamvintage.co.uk/ to find out more and take a look at the other stall holders (who were very supportive and lovely). The photographs below were taken by Keith Bloomfield of Hardluck Hotel who kindly let me use them. You can find more of Keiths work at  http://hardluckhotel.co.uk/ . Stay tuned for more magic....
