Crafty Summer Time! Shropshire Handmade Craft and Food

20170707_150449Hello 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.

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/

Making new cushions for Spring…..Vintage Flowers and 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.

Handmade Christmas Shopping…From the Comfort of your own Home!

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!IMG-20151202-05797 (1024x1024)IMG-20151120-05758 (1024x655)IMG-20150920-05578 (1024x796)

Made in Shropshire Fair in the Square, Saturday 8th August

IMG-20150613-05289 (497x640)A quick post to remind you that it’s Made in Shropshire arts and food market this Saturday, 8th August. It’s the usual time and place – from 9am-5pm in the main Square in Shrewsbury town centre. I have some new goodies and will also be running a little summer sale, so I hope to see you there!

At last…I’m doing a market! Made in Shropshire, Saturday 13th June….

It’s been a long time since my last post.  In fact, this is my first of the year. Sometimes life gets in the way. It’s been getting in my way, but now I’m back on track and getting down to it again. Another first of the year, for me, is this Saturday’s Made in Shropshire market in Shrewsbury town square. I have some lovely new goodies to share with you, so it would be fabulous to see you there! As per, it runs from 9am-5pm. It’s also Carnival day, so remember that the town centre is closed to traffic between 1.30 and 3.30pm, while the parade passes through. So come in early, or go home later!

I’m going to post some pictures tomorrow, so come back and take a sneak peek! I’m looking forward to Saturday….I’ve missed my days in the square and hope to see you there!

IMG-20140928-04610 (1024x815)This is just a reminder about the Chronicle Christmas Market in Shrewsbury’s town square this Saturday, the 20th December. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed this year! This is my last market of the year, so do come along and see what you can find on my stall for your Christmas stockings and gifts…..A nice, big event, with over 50 stalls with crafts and delicious local food……I hope to see you and wish you all a Merry Christmas 2014! Squirrel and Owl say, ‘Happy New Year’ too!
