Cancer Research UK - knit a pink scarf

A lady by the name of Rachel Speight visited our stall at the Harewood House VW Festival this weekend and told me about their plans to knit a super long scarf to wrap around the wall of York.  Proceeds are in aid of breast cancer and will go to Cancer Reasearch UK.
If anyone would like details on how to join in Rachel's web site is at: http://www.donatetobreastcancer.org/raw-knit-the-york-wall
Thanks to everyone who visited us at Harewood and especially to Bob and Janet who rescued us when our van broke down just outside of Otley!

Thanks to all who visited Snug in a Dub at CamperJam 2010

I just wanted to say a huge "THANK YOU" to everyone who visited my stall at CamperJam this weekend.  I've had some lovely comments which have been well received so thank you again for those.
For anyone who was looking for a VW "Are we nearly there yet?" T-Shirt for their little 'uns, I'm hoping to have a new batch out soon and in smaller sizes so I'll post on the blog again once I've got them in stock.
As for those who are interested in bespoke blankets and bunting, please keep an eye on the website over the next couple of weeks as I add pages with information on how to place an order and prices.
Thanks again
Best wishes

Shabby Chic Crochet Blanket in Cath Kidston Style Colours

Well, it's taken hours in the making but I've finished another retro vintage style crochet blanket. This one has squares bursting with summer colours, very Cath Kidston! I'm sure this will cater for a multitude of uses. So, whether it's a summer picnic, a cosy wrap, a throw for the sofa or perhaps for a girly bed blanket, I'm certain it will find a new home!

Are any of you Volkswagen fans off to Camperjam 2010? We're setting up a stall there this year. I'm betting there will be a heatwave as we've chosen to sell blankets, hot water bottles etc! Still, plenty of retro vintage melamine, modern picnic sets, BBQ's & lanterns plus T-Shirts and hopefully many more goodies besides! http://www.camperjam.co.uk/ See you there!

We have a competition running to win one of our VW themed T-Shirts. Check out the "T-Shirts & Togs" button for our current designs.

Friends at http://www.ramjamretrocampers.co.uk/ are running a competition to win a 3 day break in their campervan "Ermintrude". Ramjamretrocampers are based in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales - go on, give it a go!
Well hello there! This is new territory for me so where do I start? Snug in a Dub is a new venture which came about following the purchase of our 1967 Splitscreen Camper Van. We've had the van for 2 years but there is still a lot to do including a new gearbox and a camping interior.
Snug in a Dub is our contribution to making life in your old V-Dub just a little more cosy. We've found you a mixture of handmade, retro, vintage and modern items including granny blankets, hot water bottles, melamine dinner ware, lanterns and bbqs. We would like to share our ideas with you. Of course if you would like to make any suggestions for items you would like to see, let us know, we'll see what we can do.
Thank you!
