Get Stitched!

Ladies of Brighton, listen up! Vintage emporium Beyond Retro Brighton, is joining up with the Brighton Festival and will soon be having an embroidery tattoo parlour! Perfect for those who love tattoos, vintage and retro designs, or even those scared of needles, here is your chance to spruce up some clothes with some old school goodness!

 

Talented Jenny King has worked for many high fashion brands such as Erdem, Stella McCartney and Mary Katrantzou. Her website shows some of her amazing work, www.jennykingembroidery.com. Using her sewing machine, she practises an original 50's technique to embroider your choice of old school tattoos onto a favourite piece of clothing or something you have purchased from Beyond Retro. Choose from a classic swallow, horse shoe or her array of retro designs. You can choose whichever you like, and can even personalise them!
 
This will be taking place on Saturday May 11th at Beyond Retro from 10am to 6pm. It is free to get in and designs start from a mere £5!
 
I will definitely be making a visit with a suitcase of clothing to be stitched!
 
Beyond Retro is located at 42 Vine Street, Brighton, BN1 4AG
 
With lots of vintage love,
