It's nearly time for the Beyond Measure Open Weekend!
It will take place on the weekend of 15, 16 and 17 November - full details about opening times and directions at the end of this post!
But what can you expect to find?
Well I open up my rather industrial unit to the public so you can come and browse and buy my goods direct. There will be the full range of website products on display, plus some gorgeous new things for the winter.
This will include some of the winter limited edition products by Cohana:
Some gorgeous new festive paper items from Jurianne Matter
I also have a bit of a clear out, so there will be a few end of lines, prototypes and samples at special prices. And there will be tweed fabric pieces available for you to rummage through!
And some new threads from Paint Box Threads:
Plus I'll be having a bit of a destash of my own book and fabric collection too!
For our refreshments this year, my friend Roshan will be making some delicious cakes, including some vegan options. All the proceeds from the cakes sales will to Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced People. Roshan has spent some time volunteering in Leros and Calais and this has led her to realise the importance for displaced people of having access to a phone for emotional and practical support.
I do hope you will come along for a chat and a look - it's always good to catch up!
See you next week,
The open weekend will take place on
Friday 15 Nov 10 - 3
Sat 16 Nov 10 - 4
Sun 17 Nov 11 - 3
We are located at Unit 15, Quality Works, Old Fire Station, Rochdale RD, Todmorden OL14 7NA
By foot or car from the centre of Todmorden - follow the Rochdale Rd for about a quarter of a mile, Morrisons is on the left hand side. Just past Morrisons on the right, you will see a large mill type building with a clock tower. We are in this building. Go to the far end of the building where the sofa sign sticks out. Go through the large green gates and you will see some double wooden doors that say Old Fire Station Quality Works. Enter the building here and go up the stairs to the first floor and through the door on the right. Turn right and Unit 15 is straight ahead.
It can be cold - wrap up warm!
You can park on the main road (please do not park in the area inside the green gates as this is for tenants only) or Morrisons have free parking for customers only.
We are a maximum of 10 minutes walk from the train station and town centre.
We are on the main train line from Leeds (about and hour) and Manchester (about 30 mins) and you can also get direct trains from various Lancashire stations.
- I will have a card machine operating but wi-fi can be patchy so please bring cash if you can, especially for smaller amounts and the raffle. There are several cash points in the town and at Morrisons.
- The works space is situated in an industrial building with uneven floors, so please take care. Sorry it is not very wheel chair accessible but please contact if you have special access requirements and we will try and help.
- All are welcome but children MUST be supervised at all times and not allowed to wander around the building unaccompanied. Entry to the building is at your own risk and Beyond Measure or the building owner are not liable for any damage to people or property.
- Sorry no pets
