In a mad rush, I received a call from the BBC Look East news team wanting to come in to chat to me - immediately. Catching wind of a special shoe I had just finished making for The Bridewell Museum.
The museum is holding a pop up event all this month in celebration of Norwich's historic shoe trade. The exhibit features shoes created by a cross section of women, with a special Milly J shoe sculpture which will be permanently housed in the Bridewell shoe section.
If you've not visited the museum, it has a magnificent room dedicated to John Newstead, a local pharmacist who received an MBE for his services to the pharmaceutical trade. Collections of quaint and curious artefacts from the Victorian era fill jars and shelves and my - it is a sight to behold! Inspired by this, the shoe scuplture created was in homage to this.
I will reveal the shoe properly soon.

To bring in the Christmas Spirit, Milly J hosted an afternoon tea and shoe clip making workshop at The Maids Head Hotel. The rooms were decked with classy decorations, our teacups were brimming and bellies full of scrumptious treats. The hotel did us proud.
The ladies who attended had great fun chattering and creating festive shoe clips to give as gifts. Streams of ribbon, bouquets of faux flowers, buttons, embellishments and more were offered to help create their wonderful clips. I took the ladies through demonstrations and then guided them through as they made their own.
As a partner with The Maids Head, England's oldest hotel, we are pleased to be hosting more of these in the future.

Earlier this month I was invited to Marshland High School in Wisbech as a speaker and award issuer. Congratulating the GCSE recipients with their certificates and awards for achievement. Joined on stage by the Mayor and Mayoress of Kings Lynn, the event was full of pride and high achievement. However, not all students will achieve the grades they or their parents desire, but this in no means stops them from paving their own way towards success.
Thank you for the beautiful bouquet of flowers!

As a local Norwich lady, Milly J Shoes is very pleased to have been invited by one of the county's leading museums to create an exclusive shoe for their collection. The Bridewell Museum has an impressive shoe section which houses many of the areas leading footwear brands. Norwich of course was once known as one of the footwear capitals. So, to bring a shoe into the 21st century for them is a real pleasure!
