Let's meet yearly roundup

It's coming to the end of the year and not only that but it's the last few online shopping days to get items in time for Christmas and so we thought that not only would we do a round-up of all our great "Let's Meet" interviews this year, but also it might help with those last minute present ideas.

So, to start in January, we had the Sewing Directory, with not only a great website resource but a book too that might work well for anyone who wants to start their own creative business in 2016.

Next in February, is a firm favourite of H's and is Wolf & Moon.  They also now stock in asos, exciting! aswell as their own great website with all the stock you could want.  So pretty.

In March it was Hello DODO's turn with their great prints and t-shirts.  They sell on Etsy and Not on the High Street and so plenty of options to find a last minute present.
Starting spring in April, was Floss & Mischief with these amazing cross stitch patterns, making cross stitch cool again, they stock in Liberty's too, so they must be good!

May time and it's the start of Wedding season, so it seemed appropriate to say hello to Oh Squirrel with her great Hen Party, wedding and just about anytime ideas, love these fabric labels!

It now comes to June and Frilly Industries was our interview this month.  These girls make such cool jewellery that we just had to feature them.

July's interview came about from a craft fair visit - the best kind of designer/maker finding territory!  This month was Lucy Alice Designs, both of us came away with purchases from that fair!
In August we showcased London Craft Club and their great classes they offer.  Another great idea for presents are experiences rather than one off gifts.  I have got a pottery course to look forward to in the new year for one of my Christmas gifts, but this concrete jewellery class is firmly on my wish list too.

September gave us the opportunity to talk to two ladies who run East Wick, a favourite of Sammy's.  They make these great smelling candles and they last so well too, perfect candle behaviour! And I can tell you from a summer working to test candles, that long lasting candles are a good thing!

Now, lastly but by no means least in October we talked to Fran from Fall for DIY about the We Make Collective subscription boxes that came out just a few months ago.  The gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!

Well, I hope that might have helped with some last minute present ideas, or maybe just reminded you that you wanted something off the lists!  Looking forward to sitting down for a chat with so many more people next year, if there is anyone that you would like us to talk to, just let us know in the comments below and we will get in touch with them.
