Tamara Maynes Custom Helvetica Workshop in Melbourne

You may remember my interview with NSW-based crafter extraordinaire Tamara Maynes back in July last year (WOW time flies!).  Tamara creates unique handcrafted pieces for many high profile stylists, and more recently has also taken on the role of craft editor of SOHI magazine (blogged here last week!).

Tamara is always conjouring up amazing new creative projects for SOHI or for her gorgeous Six Week Boutique... and her latest lovely creation is the Helvetica cross stitch kit!  To launch these cute embroidery kits, Tamara is holding a unique cross-stitch workshop in Melbourne very soon!

The most EXCITING part of this little workshop, is that Tamara will pre-customise each participant's kit ready to be stitched on the day!  Just tell her what you want to say in Helvetica, keep it short and sweet and so it shall be!  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cross stitcher, it's set to be a super fun day where you will learn handy cross stitch tips and tricks, and spend the morning meeting lovely crafty new people!

Tamara's workshop is scheduled for October 23rd and will take place at the Footscray warehouse studio of her friend, amazing interiors stylist Glen Proebstel.   It'll be an intimate gathering with only ten spots available!   The workshop costs $80.00 which includes each customised kit. Tamara will need a week to customise your kits so if you're keen you must book your place by this Friday.  Book online here!

Tamara’s Helvetica cross stitch kit comes with charcoal and ecru thread and your choice of yellow, red or tiffany blue. The kit is also available instore if you can’t make the workshop... though you will need to customise it yourself!
