Hermione Alicia Thomas AKA my daughter got the opportunity to learn how to cue in records and do some scratching. This was after she discover that records have 2 sides and couldn’t believe her luck when she discovered songs on the other side too!!After all she’s been used to playing CD’s her whole life. The wonderful Dan Brody and Lauren Hubbard treated us to some wonderful tunes, whilst we ate homemade cake and drank mulled cider.
The new Studio is divided into areas for pattern cutting,workshops,knitting lounge,sewing and shopping. There is also artists space and a small kitchen area at the back of the studio behind the door. It’s like the Tardis. Good friends of mine Amelia Quiamboa and Leon Grant who run the label ALQ Associates sold from their exclusive range of clothing on the night. Artist Elke Pollard brought along her pencils and watercolours to amuse and amaze with impromptu guest portraits.
