The Best Children’s Advent Calendars?

Are we the best? Well, the people at the British broadsheet newspaper The Independent think so.

Memory Thread Co. was been featured in The Indy’s 2015 Best Kid’s Advent Calendars selection as one of only fifteen featured calendars to be enjoyed by children. Of course the Little Beanie is also in their main image, too!

This doesn’t mean that older children (adults?) can’t enjoy our advent calendars. After all, they’re now officially the best. Browse the full collection of Bow Beanie’s Quilted Advent Calendars here

Cave
I really need to badger NPower to connect me to the national grid. Hand-cranking a sewing machine has left me with an overdeveloped right arm

Next year I’m going to start preparing for Christmas in April. You see, working in the dark of my cave, with only a head torch for light, really tires my eyes and I need to take frequent breaks. Not to mention that this cave is actually in Fife, it takes a fair amount of time to commute to work each day.

In spite of all that, preparations for Christmas are coming on apace and I’ve roped in the techno wizard that is Mr Beanie to aid me in showing my Christmas goodies to the world.
