Beach party...

Issue: 79 | Category: Issue 79, Pattern, Preview

Get set for summer fun with issue 79 (on sale now)!

A staff favourite this month has to be Kath Webber's Southwold garland which has captured the essence of the British seaside humour in its cheeky, beachy motifs, and would look adorable adorning a beach hut. We especially love the bucket and spade – a wonderfully innocent symbol of the childhood holiday.
