The Funky Friends are OFF to Holland!

Aug 23, 2016 | A day in my life, Blog, FFF News

I can’t believe it’s actually happening! I have been invited to go to the Netherlands to teach a toy making workshop, in the Stitchee shop in Oud-Beijerland, a village in the Dutch countryside.

Well, to be honest…

I kinda invited MYSELF!!!

It’s true! 😀 I have known Erika for a long time as she is one of the oldest Funky Friends Stockists. We have become friends over the years so when she told me she is celebrating her shop’s 5th birthday in the first week of September and asked if I could donate some prizes for a giveaway during her week long celebrations… I said for sure – and maybe I can come to the party?

So I will be teaching a workshop in the shop on the 1st of September and we will be making my Fifi Fox Toy Pattern

… in DUTCH!!!!

Hopefully I will be able to get by with the Afrikaans I remember from my school days??? 😀


If you are going to be in Holland – please come say hello!!!

    This is about an hour drive from my house, too bad I can’t come that evening, would have been great to meet you! If you have any free time left while in Holland and would like to meet, just say so. Have a fun time in Holland and happy sewing!

      Hi Mireille, It was such a fun time in Holland but it was gone in a flash. I hope one day I can go back… so maybe you can come say hello then! 😀
