Hot on the heels of their publishing debut with Printmaking and Embroidery, Brighton crafters Super+Super have released another pair of books with original projects on Crochet and Paper Cutting. And we have one of each to give away!
The Super+Super series, created by Claire Culley and Amy Phipps, centres on the idea of crafting with friends, with tutorials to help creatives of all levels inject originality into their wardrobe, home décor and gifting repertoire.
Crochet and Paper Cutting each contain 20 illustrated tutorials showing readers how to create items such as tablet and phone cases, a wine holder, birthday cake toppers, bunting and garlands and much more using widely-available materials.
Our favourites are the colourful crochet necklace, stool cover and vintage fruit bag. And the paper masks are bound to go down a treat at weddings or any event where there’s an opportunity for photobooth fun.
Each project is fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, a list of all the tools you’ll need and techniques that are described in detail.

Cath Kidston has launched a range of clothes and accessories based on Brighton postcard prints. Inspired by the British summertime, the ‘Brighten up your Day’ collection includes a sundress and skirt, chunky bangle, bags, stationary and more – all featuring sketches of the city’s best-loved landmarks.
Because we love the festive season almost as much as second-hand stuff, we’re on the hunt to find Brighton’s best vintage shop Christmas window, with a fantastic promotional package for the winner!
We’re looking for stunning Christmas window displays from vintage, second-hand, repro and charity shops in Brighton & Hove and will be putting all submissions to Vintage Brighton Facebook fans to decide which is the most enticing. The winner will be awarded a promotional post on www.vintagebrighton.com as well as one month’s free side-bar advertising on the site during January to help give business a kick start in 2014.
All entrants will also be featured on the Vintage Brighton Facebook page and the best, as judged by Vintage Brighton editor Jo-ann Fortune, will be featured in a round-up post on the site.
If you want to show off your window display, simply e-mail a photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Christmas window’ in the subject line by midday Sunday 8 December. Your image must be at least 575 pixels wide and you must own the copyright.
While her school friends’ bedroom walls were plastered were pictures of Duran Duran in the 1980s, owner of The Picture Emporium Sam Hart “had a weird collection of Victorian grannies” on hers. Easy to see then, how over two decades later she can be found selling vintage prints in Department Flea Market.
