Full Tilt Nanna. Full steam ahead.

Let’s face it - we all have a bit of Nanna in us. We secretly sneak Nanna type rituals into our daily lives - Nanna naps / a shot or two of cheap cooking Sherry / a shortbread bikky with some milky tea / or perhaps a snuggle with our favourite multi-coloured square, crocheted woollen blanky as we watch re runs of “Donahue". With this in mind, I would like to introduce to you our latest Artist as she goes FULL TILT NANNA!

Introducing - Anthea Abell! Anthea’s label, “Full Tilt Nanna” is everything you would expect it to be - crocheted goodness wrapped up in the form of kids toys and accessories, as well as her famous personalised Fortune Cookies and Tooth Fairy Pillows - a MUST for any toothless / gappy primary school kid! Anthea is here to teach you the basics of crocheting just in case your Nanna rep needs some revival! So without further or do, cue the gramophone - let’s get this soiree started!

We will be providing you with your colour choice of t-shirt yarn on the day, but please also bring an old T-shirt or two to practice making your own yarn. Please indicate your preferred yarn colour choice when during checkout and we will do our very best to accommodate your choice.
