TWIG Craft Cafe

Today I hosted the first Craft Cafe for the lovely ladies at TWIG ( Toulouse Women's International Group ) where we came together to share our handmade items, to discuss the crafts we've tried, the books we like and the things that we'd love to make. It was very inspiring and I can't wait until the next workshop on 16th May.

Spring Fair - the day after

What a great day we had at the Spring Fair in Fonsorbes yesterday. We'd like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support on the launch of our new site.

Walking around the fair it was clear that there are lots of talented people making some beautiful products and just how much preparation and hard work goes into running a stall ( and how much your feet ache the next day! )

Mums Love 2 Make Website Launched

logo135wAfter several months in planning, we are finally online! We wanted to create a site which showcases the work of local hobbyists, designers and artisans and provides the links to buy and sell beautiful hand crafted and homemade products.

As so many of our friends also have children we wanted to create a site that would promote arts and crafts for kids. 


There is no charge for you to advertise on our site. All we need is your basic information and an image that promotes you or your products.

Why not join us TODAY?


So what next ... well, we are already working on creating an online shop so that you will be able to buy products all in one place. We are also developing a partnership page to promote other local successful businesses who are 'making it in France' offering travel, accommodation or health and lifestyle services.
