    Breezy boats - sketchbook to catalogue

      Our new breezy boats fabric started life as a series of sketches, drawn whilst sitting on Maenporth beach in Falmouth watching the Tall Ships parade on 31st August 2014. Breezy boat sketches From the sketchbook a selection became embroidered boats in full sail... Breezy boats embroidery And from the sewing machine to a test series of printed fabric designs... Breezy boaty fabrics Where the final pattern was chosen, screen printed onto canvas fabric, and made up into lovely bags, purses, pencil cases and wash bags - just for you! Breezy boaty purses Carried to St Ives in a huge suitcase of PT products ready for their close up... Catalogue photo shoot And immortalised in our 2015 catalogue...

    Behind the scenes on our catalogue photo shoot

    On Monday 2 March we took over the delightful Porthgwidden Beach Cafe in St Ives for our 2015 spring summer catalogue photo shoot. We left hailstorms and a forecast of gale force winds in Penzance for our old fashioned Cornish seaside holiday-themed shoot - just a few miles away in St Ives. Luckily for us, St Ives seems to have its own special weather system and the sun shone all day long! A curious seagull even joined us for a bit of modelling on the beach. Also luckily for us, the cafe is closed on Mondays in the winter, as we arrived with a huge suitcase of samples, moved all the furniture around, took pictures off the walls, filled the place with Poppy Treffry products, and generally made ourselves at home for the day. Porthgwidden Cafe Product samples Matt Jessop, our amazing and fearless photographer, balanced precariously on stairs, up ladders, and on the edge of a raised concrete walkway to capture the shots we needed. He even tried to rescue our mermaid birthday card as she flew out to sea after a failed attempt to take her photo on the beach. And we got to review the photographs almost instantly via the wonders of modern technology.

As the sun set, we walked through St Ives and captured some lovely pictures of the harbour and our shop in the evening light.

We plan to go back soon and sample that salted caramel chocolate pot on the menu - mmmm mmm! Porthgwidden Beach Cafe Porthgwidden Beach Cafe
