Mums and dads have playgroups, geeks have Warhammer evenings and Upcyclers have #PrelovedHour with Preloved (www.preloved.co.uk) on a Sunday night over on Twitter!
Preloved Hour is a weekly chat running ever Sunday between 7pm and 8pm and was first held in September 2015. #PrelovedHour provides a fabulous platform for all you budding upcyclers and restorers to showcase all the fantastic things you have made to wider audience. It is also a great way to catch up with people who share your passion and get some tips on producing some amazing stuff!
Here is a preview of the amazing things that you can discover there, seriously there are some impressive things!
@karynromeis made this out of drinks cans for her embroidery flosses
@PurpleFinchUK This poor pretty bee perished in her sunroom. out comes a burnt bulb, champagne cork, & wire to make this cute curiosity
@marinebluemakes - Took a lovely table with a badly scratched top, to give it a new life using bottle tops and resin! Amazing!
@remadeinbrit- Found an old vintage chair, completely upholstered it using an array of fabrics! Adore all the colours
@dollydiditLDN Upcycled this table using monopoly card! Don't throuw away those old sets!!
I was also lucky enough to be asked to take part in Preloved's National Second hand day in April which is a fantastic way of celebrating all that is preloved and upcycling it into something new :)
So, if you are at a loss of things to do on a Sunday night, why not join me and lots of others on Twitter :)
