    Try Something New - Quilting

    Joyce writes for us about her journey into the world of quilting.

    "When I had first moved to the USA, I struggled to meet new friends, it was school summer holidays, and all the school-mum type things were on hold for the break. I got really fed up, and one day went for a browse in the fabric store, the shop assistant said she had just the thing… Quilt In A Day.

  • Samantha Gets Recycling & Upcycling

    Samantha Gets Recycling & Upcycling

    We received this lovely email off a very crafty mum out there, called Samantha, and wanted to share it with you...

    "First off I'd like to thank you at ExpatWoman for all of the help, advice and comfort you've given me over the last 8 years

    As a local artist I have over the years created many pieces of art and installations for the local community and recently I was asked to refurbish a piece of furniture and document the process as a favour for my son's school.

    Having done this I realised that I could share this process with all of the mums out there (and non-mums) who were enviromentally conscious and needed something to do with the 27th hour of their day :-)" Here she gives up step by step instructions with photographs of her amazing upcycled bureau.

    "I'm loving napkin decoupage at the moment... The results are amazing and it's much quicker than doing an album so nice to have a little break!
