The last few outings of Best Pressed distro have been great. We did zine making workshops at Neighbourhood in Camp and Furnace. I made a zine about zine-making and the idea was that people who wanted to learn to make one could learn how to bind it together and design the cover so they would leave with a personalised ‘how to’ leaflet. I still have some left so get in touch if you missed out and you want one. We also had a zine library for folks to browse and a load of great stuff for sale.
The only downside of the day was that one of the people who came to make zines with us thieved a load of drawing pens. Everyone seemed nice so it’s a shame that one person was just out for what they could get on the day from a DIY event where they were getting a bunch of free stuff anyway.
On a positive note, I’ve got quite a few new things in the distro. Crafts brilliance in Sugar Paper http://sugarpapergang.blogspot.co.uk and also indie pop fun from Candy Twist http://candytwistfanzine.blogspot.co.uk
Also, new stuff from Emily and Anne. http://www.emilyandanne.co.uk These are adorable.
