makers at home

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been busy preparing for an event dreamt up by three friends and myself. Here’s how it started:
‘Remember how our mothers before us used to disappear for the evening every so often back in the 70’s and return home laden with Tupperware? We were chatting about that over coffee a few months back and how it was really an opportunity for our Mums to meet with other women, have a glass of Babycham, a few sausages on sticks, spend a little of the house-keeping and talk about grown up stuff.
Now, of course, we’d favour sauvignon over Babycham, crudities and dips over sausages but other than that, we still enjoy treating ourselves to a little something and chatting with people about subjects other than the price of nappies and the best way to deal with teething issues.
And so that, really, is how Makers At Home started. With the four of us each running small businesses that produce and sell lines of clothing and accessories, we thought that it would be great to gather in one of our homes and invite friends and their friends along for the evening to, chat a little, spend a little, drink a little and share a little plate. Good idea? Well, let’s try it and see how we go…’
We love the idea of finding new ways to sell our handmades to people who enjoy shopping responsibly in our beautiful rural community. We’re all terribly excited. I’ll feedback to you after the event.
