I’ve been busy making some new goodies that I’m going to be taking to next week’s Christmas Fair at Shrewsbury High School (this year on the prep school site, Old Roman Road, 5pm-8pm on Friday 24th November). I can’t quite believe that we’re here again, that Christmas is just weeks away! It’s unbelievable. Anyway, here’s a quick peek at my new felt swan decorations. Available in white, pink and blue, these are entirely sewn by hand, with pretty beads, white netting and hand cut gold crowns. They have proved rather time-consuming, but are really quite nice to make. I always enjoy a break from the sewing machine to get back to some old-fashioned hand sewing. Here’s a pic! I’ll also shortly be listing some of these in my Etsy and Folksy online shops. Adieu for now!
Hello again at last! And apologies for the lack of posts of late. It’s easy to get swept up in life and, online-wise, also be distracted by social media and neglect your actual website! I’m here today to remind you it’s Made in Shropshire in Shrewsbury town square this Saturday 8th July. It’s my first outing there this year and I’m really looking forward to it! Lots of colourful loveliness to show you! See you there! As usual, 9am-5pm.
Don’t forget to make a visit this weekend to Brompton Cookery School’s first ever artisan Christmas market. Come along and meet the wonderful makers and purveyors of high quality food, arts and crafts! It’s on Saturday and Sunday, the 3rd and 4th of December, between the highly civilised hours of 12 and 6pm on both days. Free parking and lots of refreshments to enjoy. I have a bundle of new things on offer, so do come and say hello! Here’s a link to the school’s website, for directions and information – https://www.bromptoncookeryschool.co.uk/
Tomorrow I am happy to be attending this fun event in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It’s at the Wightman Theatre, next door to Carluccio’s, off The Square in Shrewsbury. Doors open at 11am and the event runs until 4pm. Lots of lovely children’s clothes, local pop up shops and craft stalls, activities for children, cakes, lemonade and splendid raffle prizes….including my own friendly fleece fox! Hope to see you at this worthwhile and fun-filled day!
I’m back in the square! Made in Shropshire this Saturday, the 9th July. Shrewsbury town square, 9am -5pm. I have an abundance of flowery, summer brightening homewares and treats. Like this cushion, festooned with yellow pom poms!
These fun pillows are now available in my online shops at Folksy and Etsy. I’ve made them with a gorgeous, 70’s green flower print cotton fabric, teamed with a glorious orange and white spotty cotton….and trimmed with pom poms. They’ve cheered me up! And I hope you like them too.
Don’t let the cold snap put you off our lovely fair tomorrow, in the main Square in Shrewsbury town centre…..9am-5pm. I have new things to show you, including little plush elephants now in the softest cuddly plush, in pastel shades just perfect for spring; opal mint, lavender and cucumber….They look adorable and feel just amazing. Some nods towards Valentine’s Day, including cards and hearts and ideas for Easter and Mother’s Day too. So if you’re about, then do come and see!
To get you in the romantic mood, here’s a vintage fabric elephant – in pink. Happy Valentine’s!
These super sweet, floral Easter bunny lavender sachets are new to my Etsy and Folksy shops….I’ve updated them so that they now have cute pom pom tails and ears that point upwards to let you know that they are happy! I hope you like them.
I’ve started my online sale today! Use your coupon code at checkout in both my Etsy and Folksy shops to receive a 30% discount off everything! Yes, even items that are already on sale! So that amounts to big savings! The code you need for both shops is XMAS15. Don’t forget to use it!
Happy New Year to all my customers and handmade friends…..and see you in 2016!
2015 is almost over….How did that happen? Can it really be Christmas AGAIN? I’ve somehow done quite a bit of my festive shopping, much of it online, so some part of this truth must have dawned! And I might put up some decorations this weekend, and jolly the place up. This year has been a bit of a struggle, healthwise, and consequently I’m not doing my usual round of fairs and markets. For one thing I’ve had to cut right back on my making. But you can still shop with me, by visiting my Etsy and Folksy online shops! There are links here, on the right of the page. Or shop locally and visit Urban Folk in Shrewsbury (the cute place just up Grope Lane, for the uninitiated. It’s adorable; you have to visit). I’m going to be adding new items online and posting right up to Christmas. So have a peep and make life easy, by shopping from the comfort of home and knowing your order will be packed up and shipped to you super quickly…..Handmade and technology heaven!
