An opening at Dunelm


This week, in my capacity as editor of Homemaker magazine, I was invited to join The Great British Sewing Bee Judge Patrick Grant and the Mayor of Lowestoft in opening a new Dunelm store in the Suffolk seaside town. Here’s me with them looking very small (I am wearing heels – they were tall men).

I had a lovely day and was really impressed with the hard work all the team had put into getting the store ready for opening day. It reminded me of what it’s like to make a magazine – everyone has to pull together and attention to detail is paramount.

Here’s a sneak peek of Dunelm’s Autumn/Winter 15 collection, which features some of my favourite pieces from the store’s new ranges…
