A couple of weeks ago we asked our newsletter community to tell us about the projects they were working on.
The idea was that four times a year we'd dedicate a newsletter that celebrates the projects run by you (the people who support us).
We had hundreds of entries, ranging from new businesses, new albums, the books you're writing, plays you're producing, knitting projects, restaurant openings, up-cycling ideas, starting degrees and completing PHD's, opening new stores, coffee shops and bars, editing TV shows, making cookware, launching new agencies, building communities, building breweries, releasing podcasts, tufting, and so many great charitable projects.
It really hit home how lucky we are to make for such a diverse and interesting group of people.
While we couldn't share every single entry in this newsletter, if you enjoy reading about what everyone else is up to, there'll be another call for entries at the end of this summer for the second edition.
Here are ten of the projects that really piqued our interest, and hopefully, yours too.
A HOUSE IN WICKLOW

A seven year self-build project in Wicklow, Ireland. It's a beauty.
High performance distance running socks. They've become our go-to running socks.
Personalised sculptures of the female form. Mads makes modern heirlooms, designed to be displayed with pride, whether you are capturing a pregnancy or celebrating a milestone birthday.
A newsletter about the wild, winding, lesson-filled lives of fascinating people.
London based womenswear that proves there's an alternative way to build a sustainable luxury brand, using end of line fabrics and a modular approach for longer lasting clothes to celebrate in.
E17 MARKET STORIES

English hedgerow vermouth. Use it to make the best Negroni.
BODIES OF WATER

Thanks again for all of your submissions. We're looking forward to sharing more in edition two at the end of the summer.
Until next time,
Huw & Becky
