We have lots of events booked and arranged for March so many that I thought I'd write a blog post but we will also have leaflets in store for you to collect.

Thursday 1st March
St Davids Day: Lots of yummy cupcakes in store some decorated with daffodils and dragons for all our welsh customers

Saturday 3rd March
Emma from Small prints will be back in the parlour from 10-4 she can take prints of your little ones fingers or drawings which are put into silver and made into pretty jewellery, cuff links etc. Great for Mothers day Presents and a lovely keepsake.

Monday 5th March

Wednesday 7th March
10.30-11.30 Knitting and crochet group. Please pop in to our knit and chat group, you don't need to book just turn up have coffee cake and learn a new skill or help teach others - great fun and no charge.

Thursday 8th March
7-9 pm
Each month we support a charity and this month is Oxfam Women's International Day. We want to raise lots but can only do that with your help. I promise it'll be fun. Women in third world countries do not have the same opportunity as we do in Britain and just £86 can buy a sewing machine for a lady to start her own business so that she is able to feed and educate her children. 
We are doing a cake swap, bring along a cake and recipe of how you made your cake we will then all swap recipes and cake slices yum!! As well as this we will be having lots of fab ladies in business with tables showing their amazing products so plenty of opportunity to buy for mothers day. There will also be an exhibition by Derek , a local photographer who has a collection of amazing women who have done jobs that you least expect a lady to do or women that are the first to do something...for example first lady in space. His work is beautiful. We have women artists and photographers also displaying their work for you to come and see. We have a lot of press interest so is sure to be a great night. If anyone would like a ticket please come in the shop to buy one they are £3. And if you can make a cake too that would also be fab. Please Please help support our night.
In march our collection on the counter will be donated to Oxfam.
