ToDryFor Design Competition 2011!

This year we’ve decided it would be fun to run our very own design competition, giving everyone a chance to submit their artwork for possible inclusion on a ToDryFor tea towel.

The winning design will become part of our ToDryFor range, earning the winner ongoing commission and international promotion and recognition. Oh yeah, and you'd get to work with us (so we'd send you emails with pictures of our cat, and chat about what you're planning to have for tea that evening, and that sort of thing)! Woop!

There's lots more info, including the design spec, terms and conditions, and prize details etc. over on the website. So... pop the kettle on, get your thinking caps on, doodle a bit, and then procrastinate until the closing date! You've got until Thursday 31st March to enter...

Good luck!!

Eek! Jonah's been eaten by a whale!

Wow o wow!! We are super excited to be able to show you the latest tea towel in our ToDryFor range. May we introduce Jonah, designed by supremely talented artist, Peter Slight.

We're sure that Jonah is quite happy, sitting there in the whale's belly. They're probably having a chat about sailors, or they could be discussing the finer merits of shrimp v plankton.

Jonah is priced at £9.95, and is available from ToDryFor here...

Tea? Nice biscuits? Yes, please!!

We've got some fun new tea towels over on ToDryFor, including a very lovely chair design, encouraging you to sit down, take the weight of your feet, and imbibe/ingest the following...

Tea? is designed by Kay van-Bellen; we love all these characters, especially the cats!

Nice to be Nice is designed by Hazel Nicholls; with so much sugary goodness, how can you go wrong?

Why not have a gander at all of our latest designs...

Corgi-tastic fun!

The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity! We're taking part in a Canadian documentary, produced by CBC, all about the build up to the Royal Wedding. We commissioned the super-talented Gemma Correll to design a commemorative Corgi Royal Wedding tea towel for the occasion, and ever since then life has been a little crazy!!

On Monday we spent the day with our UK printer, watching a cacophony of corgis going through production.

Today we've been filmed in our shop, Comma, talking all about tea towels (what else?!)!

It's been loads of fun, and now we just can't wait to get the tea towels back from the printer (expected 14 Feb)!!
