Hello! Purlesque have been busy this month! Along with making new stock for the shop we have been running stalls for two local club nights. Firstly, 'Geek Chic', set in the stunning Racquet club, held a teadance, everyone came elegantly dressed and a good time was had by all, we particularly enjoyed the tea cocktails! Watch out for future events http://www.clubgeekchic.co.uk, their next night is rumoured to be having an 80's theme, so get your puffballs out! Last night we were at the Martini Lounge, which has become a regular night for us, we love it! http://www.myspace.com/tallulahsburlesque, They always put on a great show and last night we were particularly impressed with Anna fur laxis' tribute to Betty Paige, brilliant! http://www.annafurlaxis.com/home.html. Anyway, here are some pictures of the stalls jxx

The Plinth

We thought Sue Martin did brilliantly on the plinth. You may have noticed that on her skirt said make doing mend. We used Sue going on the plinth to launch our new campaign make doing mend to promote the health benefits of making things. Purlesques focus is on knitting. Sue Martins focus is on positive thinking for more information on what Sue does go to this website www.positivethinkinc.co.uk .
We are very excited about this collaboration and will keep you up to date.

Thank you to everybody who got up early to watch her! If you missed it you can watch here
