Made in Weston

Continuing my recent habit of only managing to post things when I have an event to tell you about here I am again to let you know that I'm going to be spending Saturday 26th at 'Made in Weston'. I'm sharing a stall with my friend and former class mate Lucy Adams. We decided it was time to dip our feet in the waters of the Weston-super-Mare craft show scene (traditionally very uncool) and see if this new fair might be the place for us.

Here's a bit about the ethos behind Made in Weston:

Many of the products that visitors to Weston take home are made in China and already travelled further than the tourists. But this town is home to lots of talented people who are very capable of making quality products much better than the mass-produced “gifts” you find in a lot of the shops. So we decided to get as many of them together as possible to sell the fruits of their labours under one brand – Made in Weston. The ethos is to promote Weston as a thriving arts and crafts town as well as give all these talented residents an easy outlet for their products. We also promote a green element to the products by reusing materials wherever possible.

So come and join us between 9am and 5pm at The Winter Gardens.

who will buy my beautiful fabrics?
More posts will happen soon- now the academic year is over I will finally have some time and space again!

Was so lovely to see you both today. I hope it went well. Looking forward to seeing you again - maybe with needles in hand next time?

Really sorry we didn't manage to get to WSM today. Hope you had a lovely time and showed them what crafts were really all about. Hope to see you soon.
