Hello again! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the break. I often forget that Ashbourne and the Peak District is a holiday destination and many holidaymakers find their way to Betty’s, commenting of the beauty of the area. Today a couple from Berkshire (randomly they were from a village near the one I lived in until I was 4 and we shared the same doctor!) ANYWAY they were singing the praises of Ashbourne how clean it is and the friendly folk here.. it’s good to hear some positive feedback at a time when it’s all doom and gloom and way too many hairdressers.. . and of course everyone likes Betty’s 😊
Any way I’ve been updating workshops – Just when you think there’ll never be a cushion workshop again – 3 come along .. Jacqui has run one already this summer, which was a real success and she is putting another on, and Kath Perry who makes the beautiful cushions we sell in the shop, is coming to share her secrets and make the hedgehog cushion cover. Sophia returns with her wonderful crochet workshops and I’m going back to my arty roots with a sketchbook course and more printmaking… hopefully there’s something here that’ll interest you. We are having another Liberty Evening, bring and show your makes, share some fizz and nibbles and bag some discounts off liberty and courses.
A few of the Betty’s Elves have been busy with their studies, we’re really proud of you – Katie achieved a Distinction in her course and Penelope did amazingly well in her GCSEs. Sophie-Rose is off to University and Emmy starts her GCSE course – I have two words for you ..
