At last the new stencil venture 'For Queen and Corgi' has an online shop.
I am in partnership with my friend, ex colleague and 'super stenciller' Sabina Rose. Our stencilled Jubilee inspired bags are the first items to be uploaded because they are limited edition, have been much admired...and the Jubilee festivities will be upon us in June.
Actually, I think everything we create will be a limited edition because we can only paint one at a time, I have a full time job, Sabina has a full time garden and there are only 24 hours in a day.
Until today we have sold our Jubilee souvenir bags exclusively at The Stencil Library shop in Stocksfield or from people seeing Sabina or I carrying one. Recently, we have started a For Queen and Corgi Facebook page and now we have an online store at Folksy.com
I was a busy uploading product images last night. We invent and stencil new designs as the mood takes us, so there will be more uploading to come... but that will have to wait until next week when I return from demonstrating stencil techniques for Country Living Magazine at their annual fair in Islington, London. I should be there tomorrow until Sunday.
The organisers are hosting workshops on several different subjects my students are learning how to stencil fabric bags. Soon they may be in competition with me! The participants will be using the 'Dogs Stencil' featured in the Stencil It book
I will be signing copies of 'Stencil It' by Helen Morris which is for sale on The Country Living stand. If you have a few moments please visit me at the fair, the 'For Queen and Corgi' Facebook page or Folksy shop. It is early days for our new sideline and we would welcome comments...we would welcome orders too!
