As well as a regularly-updated events calendar and a weekly 'What's On' guide, we bring you coverage of festivals, exhibitions, shows and fairs, plus views, previews and reviews of magazines, books and blogs.


As well as my own adventures in making and mending, expect guest posts from amateur and professional craftspeople, and any tips, tricks and resources I find along the way.


Profiles of artists, writers, creative businesses, projects and organisations and glimpses into their lives, work, motivations and creative processes. We love green living and finding new uses for old things, so sustainability and thriftiness provide a running theme.
