First I must thank the lovely people who came and saw me at The Lightbox Christmas Craft Fair on 19-20 November in Woking. It was great to be able to catch up with you all and show you my latest creations!
If you missed the fair but are looking to do some shopping from lovely local makers, I also met some fabulous stallholders and thought I would share them with you.
First up, the lady next to me, "Twinkle Twinkle Jewellery". She hand makes all her beautiful jewellery from sterling silver and Swarovski crystals, and it's so sparkly! You can find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TwinkleTwinkleJewellery/
Across from me were the ladies from "Sew Crafty" who run an online haberdashery store. My friend Victoria Tay - Stylist, who popped along to give me a hand with my stand, got very excited about their zips with lace edges, so they might interest you too! They can be found here: http://www.sewcraftyonline.co.uk/
Down at the other end of the room was the lady from "Chunky Row", who had gorgeous chunky yarn made from real shetland wool. She had the cutest little sheep bag pompoms too! http://www.chunkyrow.co.uk/
Diane Staniforth Jewellery was also there with her lovely handmade and wire wrapped creations made from silver and gemstones. https://www.facebook.com/dianestaniforthjewellery/
The very friendly PepperPots Pottery Painting (try saying that three times in a row!) were opposite me too, with a great array of pots and other homewares all painted up and ready to take home. They also run pottery painting parties and are based in Bagshot. http://www.pepperpotspp.com
It was also lovely to catch up with Caroline Thomson hand made silver jewellery, and to see her fabulous work. I've been in the same room as Caroline in previous years and it's always a pleasure to look at her stand as it's beautifully set out and really shows off her jewellery. You can find her at http://www.carolinethomson.moonfruit.com
A couple of other highlights from around the fair were:
My colleague Linda Banks Stained Glass https://orchidstainedglass.co.uk/. I bought a little peacock pin from her, which I'll post a picture of once I've picked it up from her.
I'd also like to say hello to my colleagues at Ochre Print Studio who were just down the corridor. They had some gorgeous prints and also some beautifully finished items made from reclaimed wood. I now have a lovely stand for one of my glass pieces which was made from an old skirting board! You can find out more about their work and screen printing workshops at http://www.ochreprintstudio.co.uk/
Also new on the scene was the lovely Bear Clause Designs, who makes lovely designs composed entirely out of triangles! https://www.facebook.com/BearClauseDesigns/

Thanks to all my lovely colleagues and visitors for a great weekend at The Lightbox. See you again soon!
