Homely feelings - ready for Christmas

Winter is a lovely season for snuggling down, lighting the fire, baking with children, making marmalade and writing letters. Just as you're thinking about dusting down your Christmas card list wouldn't it be nice to get in touch with old friends, cheer up your schoolmate/child away at University or remind Grandma/Mum that you think about her more often than she thinks.
We've just designed our new Everyday Stationery set that will be on sale for the first time on Sunday at our Open Studio Sale. Ideal as a gift or as a little treat for yourself - and for getting back to a little bit of snailmail.
Other gifty ideas on sale will be our Comet mugs, dog and cat notelets, badges, studio pegs and our new Jam Making Kit which now has sticky labels. We also have some delightful Christmas cards, featuring Jonathan's wood engravings and all hand-printed by him on his letterpress in the shed.
Black Pollen
And not to be forgotten our lovely prints, limited edition wood engravings and larger silkscreen prints, which make lovely presents and are all 20% off for Sunday only.

And now we've ordered our turkey from Stenton's and booked our annual ice skating trip to Hampton Court, we feel we can get in the Christmas mood with mulled wine and mince pies at the Studio Sale. We do hope you are able to come along.

(And we're very pleased with the new photos Catherine Gratwicke has just taken for us)
