Introducing CHALLENGE 7's SPONSOR!!!!


LISA
Hi I am Lisa from Lilli-Lou Vintage and I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember. My mum patiently taught me to hand sew when I was about 4, even though she herself was not a crafty person. From there my gorgeous Nanna set about introducng me to knitting, and machine sewing. I was hooked! But of course it didn't stop there. I loved to draw, and paint and soon found myself trying every and any craft possible.

The two crafts that have found a permanent home at my craft desk are paper arts (scrapbooking and stamping) and sewing, and I just can't imagine a day without them.

My long time love of all things vintage, antique and grany chic started taking over my small cottage home almost 12 months ago. And it was time to develope a small, personal business to share my goodies with. Lilli-Lou Vintage was born. Lilli-Lou Vintage stocks vintage clothing, paper goods, handmade lovlies, and gorgeous vintage laces and trims. We are starting with a small line, and will be explanding in the new year, I am so excited and bursting with wonderful ideas.
