Mini tour of the South

The past month has flown by. I’ve been busy printing fabrics for both wholesale and retail as well as printing for one of my print services clients, in total over 100 metres of fabric has left my poor little 8 metre printing table. I’ve also run two printing workshops, bought a ‘new’ printing table (which meant a round trip to Edinburgh for my husband and his brother) and I travelled down to the south of the country twice in one week.

One week to my next fair…

It’s only one week to my next craft fair – Love Craft and only two weeks until Spring Fling – and usually at this point I’d be running around printing like a crazy lady and getting ready but I’m not – it feels so strange! I’m still preparing myself for the possibility that I might… Read more »

First fair outside Sheffield…

I’m all booked in for a fair and it’s my first outside of Sheffield.  Isn’t that strange?  I can’t believe I’ve never been to a fair in another city before!  I was always put off the idea because I don’t drive and thought it’d be too difficult to get anywhere. For the moment I’m sticking… Read more »
