How is everyone? We hope everyone is staying safe after Storm Denis and Storm Ciara. As we look out of the window we can see blue sky which is a breath of fresh air!
We thought we would just take a moment to sit down and take in 2020 so far for Crafts and Giggles! As we said in a previous blog we had a good feeling about 2020, but we had no idea just how busy it was going to be! We are so grateful for everyone’s craft party enquires and booking so far!
Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves that we get to do what we love the most for a job! A lady at one of our recent Corporate Craft Workshops said "you are so lucky to be doing a job you love" and she is so right! We get so excited about every single enquiry and every single Craft Party we host!
Katie made her dream a reality back in 2011, when she set Crafts and Giggles up. She is so proud of what Crafts and Giggles has achieved, and continues to achieve. It couldn't happen without our talented freelance workshop providers, and crafty clients, so thank you!!
If you are interested in booking Crafts and Giggles for your party or event get in touch! We would love to help!
We can’t think of anything more enjoyable than crafts alongside a yummy afternoon tea! On Saturday one of our craft hen parties did just this! We organised afternoon tea at The Slug and Lettuce in York alongside a quilt making session for them!
We spent time liaising with The Slug and Lettuce to ensure the hen party's requirements were met, from their dietary requirements to a great spacious table. We wanted it to be just perfect!
Sophia hosted the Quilt Making session, and arrived at the venue before the hens arrived to ensure the crafts were set up beautifully.
The hen party enjoyed sewing the quilt squares alongside eating what looked like the tastiest afternoon tea! This is what they said about it "we had a fantastic time thank you - Helen (the bride) absolutely loved it! Sophia was wonderful and we've said we'd like to do another one of your workshops at some point. We will definitely recommend you again! Thank you very much"
Thank you very much to the hens for having us, and to the Slug and Lettuce for hosting us! If you are looking for a fabulous Craft Hen Party, get in touch! We would love to help you!
Yesterday we were lucky enough to be invited by The White Chapel Building and Derwent London to be a part of their time to change campaign with two Ceramic Painting Workshops. They were offering a week of mixed activities to encourage the staff to take time to talk, and to take care of their mental wellbeing within the work place.
It was such a wonderful afternoon, and extremely rewarding for both the participants and Katie who hosted the Ceramic Painting. The staff took time out of their busy working day to sit down for an hour and be creative. Everyone each painted a mug and coaster. The designs were fabulous!
The feedback from doing the corporate crafts was amazing! One lady said “I have an extremely stressful job, so being able to sit down and do this is lovely and so needed, thank you” another lady said “thank you, this is the best thing I have ever done” This feedback means the world to us, but it was also important to hear these words because it proves just how important creativity is for mental wellbeing.
Thank you so much for having us and allowing us to be apart of such an important campaign. We had the best time and engaged with some amazing people. If you are looking for some crafty corporate fun for your staff get in touch we would love to help!
Here at Crafts and Giggles HQ we have had the pleasure of speaking to hundreds of hen parties so far this year! We think that 202o is the year of the wedding, and what a great year to get married?! A brand new decade and brand new married life!
(Did you know that Astrologists believe that February 20th 2020 is the best day to get married because key planets for 'commitment, emotional stability and sacred contracts' will align)
We have been inundated with Craft Hen Party enquiries. From Unicorn Headdress Making to Flower Crown Making! 2020 is looking like it will be full of Crafts and Giggles for many hens! We can't wait to meet all of our wonderful brides and their bridal shower!
