If only I could go back in time to my early teenage years and tell the dorky girl that one day her project would be featured in Cross Stitcher. She’d probably do a little squeal with excitement, before casting a disbelieving glare.
But it would be true because this month, the premiere mag for all things crafty and cross-stitchy has been kind enough to highlight the arcades project, in particular the wonderful Claire Grove Buttons.
I’m always incredibly grateful when I receive press attention for the project, as it helps boost its profile, as well as highlighting to new audiences the fantastic arcades themselves. Here’s hoping the nation’s crafters will be winging their way over to Claire Grove for a slice of button action!
This issue of Cross Stitcher will be on sale from June 14th in all good newsagents, check out the Cross Stitcher website (part of the ever fabulous Making Spot network) for more information.
