Film set dancing adventures!

Flo-jo's been busy this week what with talk of Lorraine from breakfast TV interested in showing our kits and the local papers coming round to see us to include us in their business pages. All flowing on nicely from my dancing with Hollywood A listers last week. Yes i know name dropping's a bit naff, yes i said that too, but hey you don't get to dance right in front of Cameron Dias ,Colin Firth and Alan Rickman to often now do you? I was hired as a Lindy hop dancer for a few scenes set in the gardens of a country house in the remake of the film Gambit. We were at a Venitian maskerade ball ,i even got to sit in a real gondela for a while! Glamour and glits aside it was rather cold and tiring working outside all night but we had such a fab time. Just having what felt like our own band to play swing music for us dancers was brilliant. Many thanks to Guy Barker and Ben Castle for being so good and keeping us smiling.

25 hens,1 royal wedding,1 real wedding and a camping trip party bbq!

Wow ..plenty of things packed into a beautifully sunny double bank holiday weekend!
Erika and I had two knicker making hen parties booked both with Cox and Baloney. With the first group we were a little bit anxious because of the space and numbers we had to work with...17. There really was no need as the day ran smoothly with the hens juggling tea, coffee, cake,and shopping with learning new sewing skills to create their own pair of pants, finishing off with a babysham in Grandma's best china.
Everyone went away with a beautifully made pair of knickers all different and individually decorated.
Our second group was smaller, a little calmer, they had more time to put into their designs, we were rather impressed with the final products..well done ladies!

We're really pleased at how the space lends itself to our workshops and look forward to doing more there.
