Lucky Dip Club 'Crafternoon'

'MORE CRAFT?!' I hear you cry. I think it's the time of year; staying in and keeping busy is my lifeblood! Some of you may remember my reviews of Lucky Dip Club boxes from many months ago. I raved that you should all sign up (which I hope you did) and asserted that I’d keep getting the boxes, which I have. I can say with ease that the boxes get better and better every month. Jewellery, crafts, trinkets and keepsakes all come in the little brown box which I have come to look forward to receiving so much.

In addition to the brilliant the boxes are Leona, chief creator and lady in charge at Lucky Dip Club, has also become someone I’ve chatted to over the internet for some months now, mainly about emoji’s and Instagram. When she released tickets to her first ever ‘Craft-ernoon’ I knew I had to go.

The event was held Velvet Marie in Dalston; a newly opened, super cute café just around the corner from Dalston Junction. Massive hot chocolates, an incredible array of tea (the best caffeine free selection I’ve come across for some time), and proper homemade bakes and treats where on offer all afternoon and it’s somewhere I’d visit again and again. Go, you’ll like it!

Leona had put together packs, with crafts from previous boxes in, and we were left to it! To chat, drink tea and most importantly, get crafty! I personally had a really super afternoon, London can be an incredibly isolating place sometimes and getting out and chatting to like minded girls over drinks and sewing was really lovely. Meeting Leona was also an absolute treat; I’m so please for her with how well the boxes are going and her ever-expanding business. This was the first crafternoon but she vowed it wouldn’t be the last. Make sure you sign up to the Lucky Dip Club newsletter so you’re in the know and maybe even treat yourself to a few bits from the shop whilst you’re there.

(Apologies for the picture quality! Guess who forgot to check if the batteries on her two cameras were charged...)
