The other day I had the delight of receiving a little email from one of our readers explaining where her Spoonfuls were going to live in Holland…
This lovely reader, Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris, has started a visionary little craft store filled with beautiful handmade items from people she meets or hears about.
Sarah explained that her Spoonfuls would be placed inside her magical little store to “encourage friends/customers to sit down & chill with a cup of Annet’s ‘Aandacht’ (attention) tea & hopefully get inspired to pick up some materials themselves”. We thought you guys would be as fascinated as us in this gorgeous little shop’s new beginnings and so we asked Sarah to do a little post for us… so here she is!!
My name is Sarah, I am an artist, calligrapher & designer who sells fine handmade work in my little shop made by people I know or hear about – including my husband’s and my own :) At the heart of my little shop is the caring attention that comes from making something beautiful with our hands.
I want people to walk in and feel how much good it does our souls to be surrounded by well-crafted objects- things that are connected to a story, a face, and a place.
I hope that friends and neighbours will stop in for a while, pull up to the ‘Inspiration Table’, leaf through my new Spoonfuls , drink a cup of ‘loving attention’ tea from Annet’s teapot…and (buy something!) then tear outta here, crazy to get some materials in their hands to make something themselves! Craft evenings and courses are in the making too – it is exciting times!
* At our store, we make a point of NOT adding on a percentage in the cost of items. We want to support artists/craftspeople, and encourage people to buy and use durable, gorgeous things.
Currently featured is textile artist, Sandra Jongedijk. Her purses, wool covered stools, etc. are making the craft space feel so warm and cosy at the moment.
Also featured is conceptual artist, Annet de Vries, who made the wonderful attention pouring teapot!
