What an amazing story!
The BBC's series on tweed was excellent but sadly no longer available. This video is lovely though! :)
On the subject of tweed: some Scottish friends recently told me about Studio Gnu. Isn't it beautiful? I'm a zoologist by background and I love the way Studio Gnu combines taxidermy, tweed and ethics into pieces of art. One for the wish-list.

Strawberries made by Bath's very own Eirlys Penn feature in issue 2 (and on the cover!) and this video is filmed in Bath's The Makery. Feeling very blessed to live in this bit of the world.....
It's a lovely publication - and a snip at £5 for the first 3 issues ♥
Keep eyes peeled for formal strawb workshops with Eirlys coming up soon (more details here when they are firmed up) - any finished strawbs can be added to the Flickr group (love the steampunk one!)...
Butterflies in a specimen-case, crochet and a community project...what's not to like?
Aren't these superb?
