Hello Makers and Mothers of Makers…
For all of you who have felt completely unproductive in January with all the kids around and about, (like me) then relax, because February is the new January anyway! The kids are back to school…and we are excited about the year ahead at Our Little Caravan and Inchmeal Cafe.
The next 5 months are very important, as we work hard to create a viable social enterprise, that can re-sign a lease (at the end of June) for a further three years. You can help us continue to get the word out by telling those you know about Our Little Caravan, or like us/share us on social media. We don’t want to be a “hidden” gem anymore!
Here’s what’s coming up!
My Little Caravan has 5 party bookings already in Feb! (if you’ll remember, it’s the shortest month of the year!) We also have a steady stream for the future months too. Please remember to allow plenty of time regarding a party date, as we can only take one party at a time in My Little Caravan, and weekends are the most popular time to celebrate.
We are holding our first of five Artisan markets for 2017 on Saturday 11th Feb, from 11-3pm in partnership with the Notting Hill Neighbourhood House. This will again run along the shop fronts as well as in the Neighbourhood House grounds. We have over 20 stalls and an ice-cream van!
Every Wednesday beginning at 10:30am in February we are holding a Mum and Me class, open to anyone, but especially for those mums looking for a special activity to do with their Foundation Year aged school child who may have Wednesdays in February off. $25 includes morning tea for one grown up and one child, and a different craft each week in February. Wednesday 8th Feb: dancing ribbon rings, Wednesday 15th Feb: weaving art and Wednesday 22nd Feb: seashell collages. All activities are excellent for developing fine motor skills, which is an important requirement when you are a school beginner.
We are still welcoming new stall holders in 2017. Do you know anyone who’d like to join us? Tell them to come and visit. The terms and conditions are very generous, as we are a social enterprise dedicated to supporting micro businesses. We like to think of ourselves as a “brick and mortar etsy store”
We will continue to run a regular “drop in and craft” for grown ups on Tuesdays during our trading hours. Join Jac (the Crochet Queen) as she crochets (she will even give you some tips if you ask) Only $7 to use the OLC HQ space, includes a regular coffee from Inchmeal Café. BYO craft project of any type to work on in the company of others.
We look forward to seeing you at Our Little Caravan&Inchmeal Cafe soon.
