Spotlight on...

Whoo hoo! We are fully paid up for the craft fair - the last payment and booking form arrived today. To say I'm nervous is an understatement!
We have such great stallholders that there really is nothing to be so nervous about really.
Today the spotlight is on Sarah of Patch Unique. Sarah makes gorgeous items in lovely colourways. See here for her Facebook page.

Sew Gorgeous
The countdown has begun to the Big Day-amazing to think there are just 4 weeks till the Christmas Craft Fair takes place!
Today we are featuring Sew Gorgeous-and as you can see from the photos all her makes are totally gorgeous! What a lovely selection of cushions-you can never have too many cushions.
Looking forward to seeing the Broadwater Parish Rooms full of tables laden with beautiful handmade and vintage items!
See you there....

Fully Booked

Can you believe it? A couple of weeks ago I was worried we'd only have a couple of stalls for people to look around and now we're turning people away (well, adding them to a waiting list anyway)!
We will have a wide range of goods for sale, including
Jewellery (and a jewellery making workshop for youngsters)
Christmas decorations
Ribbons, Buttons, Notions
Books (craft)
Painted pebbles
Mounted prints
And more...
I hope to be able to show you some of the things we'll be selling soon.
Jane and myself are SO excited and determined to make it a success for both sellers and buyers. The venue is perfect for the look we want and Jane has been valiantly making bunting, accosting crafty types and giving out our business cards!
Only five weeks to go now...

Graeme Telford Photography
Not long now to the fair (I actually have butterflies in my tummy as I write this!) so time to begin the best bit - focusing on the stallholders.

First up is the talented Graeme Telford who takes really super photos, below are a just few from his portfolio.
I especially love the picture of the sheep.
Graeme will be selling cards and prints of his images.
You can contact Graeme here.
I have fallen in love with a photo of a deer in a bluebell wood (two of my favourite things!) that I shall be treating myself to if I make a profit at the fair (where better to spend it?!).
Look forward to seeing you on the 17th November Graeme.
(PS. Graeme is exhibiting some of his work at Green Cuisine during October).

For Research Purposes Only (really!)...

Here we are in October already - September has been a very busy month -who’d have thought there was such a lot to do to try and arrange a Craft Fair?!
I have travelled far and wide visiting Craft fairs and Vintage Emporiums -greatly enjoying myself in the process getting lots of ideas for our fair and making some wonderful purchases too!
 I travelled by train on Saturday to Chichester to visit the Vintage and Very Nice Vintage Market Bazaar - Suzanne had visited it in July and I couldn’t wait to visit it myself - I was very impressed with the selection of stalls and stallholders - even gave out some of our posters and business cards!
Looking forward to this month getting ready for our first fair - as Autumn has arrived it feels time to start thinking “Christmassy” in the craft sense at least!
