Busy weekend

Just recovering from a great but tiring weekend in Manchester at the Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, it's a while since I have done a design fair so I have forgotten how demanding they are, but I have had a wonderful time. Makers are such lovely people to spend time with, it's very isolating working from home so it is good to spend time with other creative people. I also decided I needed a treat for working so hard so I bought a bangle from Julie Mellor who had a stand next to mine. I think I need more to go with it so I'm saving for more!

Unfortunately now Manchester will have to become a distant memory for another year as I have to catch up on all the things I have neglected for the last few weeks and all the washing up and jobs my family have kindly left for me!

Talented Designers

I have only one day to of the Northern Contemporary Craft Fair and I am tiered and looking forward to going home, but as usual it is full of fantastic designers selling all sorts of lovely original crafts and I have met lots of designers who have been great fun to spend the weekend with. Working on your own can be very isolating so it is great to get together with other designers to share ideas with. If you haven't been yet come along it's great.

Northern contemporary craft fair

Although I very busy preparing for the Northern Contemporary Craft fair which is on at Spinningfields Manchester 20th -23rd October, I have been forced to stop and tidy my studio before I can go on, the chaos is too much for me now and a sort out can no longer be put off. However I'm just going to pop to my friends for a cup of before I can face the task!!!
