This week bloggers in the Manchester region were invited to our Trafford centre showroom for the very first Betta Living Blogger Event.
Welcomed by the Betta Living team, the bloggers were given a grand tour of the showroom with a glass of bubbly in hand and a vintage inspired tea party.
After introductions were made and networking in full swing, the guests were invited to chat about their previous sewing experience before the detailed tutorial from the lovely Sam at Love Me Sew.
Bloggers ready to get crafty were Pippa from Red Rose Mummy, Gemma from Dietian without Borders, Jess and Heather from The Bead Shop, Jen from My Mummy Spennies and Jenny from Lets Talk Mommy.
Material flew and sewing machines whizzed as the enthusiastic bloggers got stuck into making duvet sets in vintage and quirky prints for family members and themselves.
Each blogger was in the driving seat of their own machine and were guided through the process from the knowledgeable Sam. A multi-tasker throughout, Sam was able to show the bloggers the step by step process of creating your own bedding, whilst the team helped by ironing and pinning where needed.
Post event the bloggers were able to get snap happy, photographing the wide range of Betta Living fitted bedroom range in the showroom and of their stunning bedroom creations.
Thrilled with their designs Jenny from letstalkmommy.com was seriously impressed “I can’t believe we got to make an entire duvet cover and matching pillow in one night. I never thought that would be possible. Even better to take it away and put it up in our own homes to display our handy work.”
Crafty inspiration for a cold December evening, the bloggers left feeling content with their designs, full of knowledge… and maybe a little cake.
