The Grateful Thread will be participating in KiosKiosk this summer. The concept behind KiosKiosk is to provide a venue for creative makers/designers to sell their wares. The Kiosk
is located next to the Mayor's office and the Design Museum on Queen's Walk (closest tube London Bridge or Tower Hill). We will be selling Saturday July 25th, and Saturday August 8th. Stop by and say hello if you have a chance! For more information on KiosKiosk, a list of the various exhibitors, or how you can get involved check out the website,

PULSE tradeshow 2009

So after much anticipation and preparation, we finally took part in our first big trade show. Pulse is primarily for gifts and design led products and was a good one to choose because it specializes in new product launches. We were pretty nervous at first, but we got a great reaction to our products and the look of our stand which made us feel pretty good. We had several orders for small boutiques around the UK and met some really interesting people. Overall it was a really great experience for us, and has really helped to give The Grateful Thread that extra push into the public eye. For a list of retail shops now selling our goods, please visit our website.

Baby Blocks!

I have a lot of friends having babies lately, and I'm always stuck for ideas of what I can get for them. It's nice to do something a little personal if I can squeeze in the time. I made these little baby stacking blocks for my friend's beautiful little girl Lena. Hopefully the different textures and the bells I put inside will help entertain her. This is a really easy project and took only a little time, but I really enjoyed it.
