Hawthorne & Heaney for London Craft Week Part 1

For the past 3 years, London Craft Week has become a highlight of the creative calender with all sorts of exciting workshops, demonstrations and talks taking place across town. These celebrate the most unique and interesting craft skills London has to offer. Ranging from whisky tasting to watchmaking to weaving there is something to interest everyone. This year, we have been invited to take part in London Craft Week and are excited to be hosting two workshops in the studio to showcase our own skills.  In these workshops we will be teaching one of our stable skills, monogramming which we regulally use on shirts,  suits and accessories from our tailoring clients.

You can join us to learn the delicate art of monogramming and leave with your own monogrammed handkerchief or cufflinks at the end. Follow the link to secure your place as spaces are strictly limited, tickets are £60 plus VAT and can only be bought directly from the London Craft Week Website.

Hawthorne & Heaney presents Typography

Hawthorne & Heaney have expanded our machine embroidery options and introduced a new range of fonts to our stock this year. We now offer a much more extensive collection to chose from, which are separated into 6 families.

Block and Serif fonts are perfect for monograms and initials. Block fonts tend to create a more clean cut, simple finish that looks great on a pair of jeans, whereas Serif fronts are more classic, perfect for a shirt or the lining of a suit jacket.

The curved, overlapping lines of our Script and Fancy Script fonts make for much more elegant, luxurious finishes and look beautiful when arranged as a half-drop design, as seen in the ‘fancy script’ example.

Our ‘handwritten’ selection of fonts are perfect for making something personal, and look fantastic when used for small messages and names.

If you’re looking for something bigger and bolder, then our Varsity fonts are just that! These American inspired letters look great in all sizes, and are fantastic for small initials, and large, punchy words.

At Hawthorne & Heaney we aim to provide a wide variety of typography options to chose from that are both modern and classic. For a full list of all our available stock fonts, please get in touch.
