Poppy Treffry New Christmas Collection
Poppy Treffry Christmas Collection 2011
Poppy Treffry has launched a new Christmas collection. Her tea and egg cosies have figures from the Nativity, including an angel, shepherd and kings. Poppy reveals that "the inspiration for this new range came from my own childhood memories of setting out the nativity scene at home each Christmas".
The tea cosy is red and the egg cosies are available in assorted colours. To complete the set there is also a Nativity stocking. Egg cosies are £14.50. Tea cosy and stocking both £48. Poppy’s distinctive cosy designs are all hand made in her workshops in Cornwall.
A great idea for children is the Christmas Card Nativity postcard set. The images on each card can pop out to be made in to individual stand up figures that can then be used as part of the festive decorations around the house or in a child’s bedroom. Each set is £4.50. Poppy has put other designs on to paper with a range of new Christmas cards too. Like the cosies these little figures can become part of the family decorations year after year.
This summer Poppy started her craft courses to teach the basics of freehand machine embroidery and come away from the day with a completed project. Each course runs from 10am to 5pm and includes lunch, £95 per person. With Christmas in mind the two courses in December will involve making a stocking. It’s a good idea to book early, dates to be confirmed.
