Letter Lounge - latest addition to The Crafty Fox

Letter Lounge will be making an appearance at the Crafty Fox Market too! When you need a little break from browsing over 30 stalls full of handmade and vintage treasures and taking part in crafty workshops, pop up to the 1st floor to grab yourself a lovely cuppa, a slice of cake and write a little letter to a loved one. Claire, the brains behind the Letter Lounge, is here to explain..

'Basically, everyone loves finding a handwritten letter from an old friend on their doormat. This is true. The best way to get one is to send one. The thing is we're all so busy living our lives in a flurry of Twittering, Facebooking, and emailing to ever find the time to put pen to paper, let alone walk to the post box. So I thought I'd try something to change all that, a little occasional event called Letter Lounge - a space where you can come along to write the letters you never have time for and enjoy a bit of a social. We'll provide paper, pens, envelopes and stamps. All you need to bring is the address of the person you're writing to and a sunny disposition. We even take the trouble to post your letters for you. And Letter Lounge is free. I'd just like more people to send each other lovely handwritten letters.'

Letter Lounge has a very beautiful website and you can also find Claire on Twitter too. Don't forget to bring addresses of all those long lost friends!

  1. Hey,
    Great to meet you at the print workshop on Saturday. I am still nursing a sore finger!

    Hopefully will see you on the 16th. Good luck with all the organising. Let me know if you need any help with anything, I'm just down the road after all and as we discussed need to get stuck in!:)
