Tea, anyone?

We wanted to share some pics from the ‘A Tea Cosy Love In’ with Loani Prior. The event held as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival. Many of our Sydney staff members mingled with the Queen of the Tea Cosy, Loani Prior herself and their photo taken by guest photographer Mark Crocker with their woolly hand made items. Such fun!
