I first came up with the idea nearly a year ago and it’s been lingering in my brain for a while and evolving over time. I mentioned the idea to Nick Hand who is a co-founder of and runs The Letterpress Collective after meeting him at 2014 Do Lectures where I was a speaker (see the 20 min video of my talk here). I thought it could work really well to stitch through card that had been letterpress printed and these two old traditions of letterpress and embroidery combined to make a contemporary kit would not only celebrate these two crafts but also tell a new story.

 

The gang who made it happen right to left: Megan Krawielitzki (on work experience helping lay and print parts), Sarah Corbett who designed the portrait dot to dots and came up with the idea, Nick Hand who runs the Craftivist Collective and suggested the collaboration, Ellen Bills Nicks apprentice and right hand woman, Dave Thomlinson with 50 years experience in letterpress who did most of the printing, plus friend & supporter baker Tom Herbert you might recognise off Channel 4's The Fabulous Baker Brothers show

I’m going to be honest and say that I really hope we win. The prizes look really useful and include a choice of mentoring, coaching, website analysis or photography tuition from the super-skilled Blogtacular team, plus  a feature in Mollie Makes.

 

Wish us luck!:) We find out at the end of this week eek x
