Friday July 5th - 9am - 5pm
Put the date in your diary NOW as you won't want to be anywhere else than on the Beautiful Things Bus to Crafty Heaven!
First stop on the Beautiful Things Bus is the fabulous 'Shedquarters' of Blooming Felt. An absolute treasure trove of everything felty, ribbon, trim and lots lots more. Sarah will be welcoming us with a cuppa and a demonstration of needle felting techniques and then you will get a chance to look around and shop.
Back on the bus and this time we are off to FABRIC REHAB!! Yes that fantastic on-line supplier of amazing fabrics actually has a shop. Usually only open on Tuesdays and Thursdays Fabric Rehab has agreed to open EXCLUSIVELY for us so we will have the whole shop completely to ourselves for a whole hour!
After all that shopping you will be ready for lunch and we have a table booked on the riverside at the Boathouse Restaurant in Dedham. If it's a sunny day we will be dining Al Fresco and if the sun decides to hide we will have the best 'indoor with a view' table. Enjoy 2 courses (starter and Main) included in the price of your ticket. A menu will be available for you to pre-order from a couple of week before the trip.
After lunch it's time to catch your breath with a short 5 minute walk to the Dedham Art and Craft Centre. Enjoy a leisurely hour looking at the work of some of Essex's finest artisans.
Then meet up again in the in-house tearooms to enjoy a cream tea (also included in your ticket price)!!
Then it's back on the coach for the drive back to Beautiful Things HQ, arriving back at approximately 5pm
Tickets cost £48 per head including*, travel, lunch & cream tea.
*lunchtime drinks and any purchases in any of the shops we visit along the way are at your own cost, I will not be held responsible for crafty supply shopping!
