This year is flying by! Almost time for us to empty our studio and embark on new adventures.
As most of you will know by now, I am soon going to be taking a year "off" from Sparklewren to make time for other interests.
During that time I will be turning out perhaps one couture corset per month (pre-made over the next couple of months and embellished during the year off).
So that means that all I will need is a small amount of room and a collection of my favourite embellishments! I certainly won't need *all* my fabric remnants, lace, beads, feathers, books, equipment, and older sample corsets...
Therefore, our Summer Party (29th August) this year will be a little different to usual! We will be selling all sorts of stuff nice and cheap, possibly giving some bits away, and arranging to put our favourite equipment out on "loan" for a year.
The loans are mostly arranged now (I will be contacting the relevant people about this soon), but everything else will be up for grabs.
So whether to nab a bargain or just spend some time socialising, please do come along :-)
People are welcome to bring cameras, to dress up, to bring their own corset designs for informal feedback, or just to chat and ask questions. I appreciate that we have had to say "no" to a lot of intern requests this year, so you're all very welcome to pop along to the party to have a nose around.
Please do let us know if you're coming so that we have a sense of numbers! This is an afternoon shindig, but champagne will still be on the cards ;-)
See you there,
