This year I’m holding a stall at the Craft Country Fair, which is at the Greytown town hall on Saturday 15 December. This will be the first time I’ve had a craft stall so I am a combination of excited and petrified! Sewing–especially hand sewing–is how I relax in the evenings. Over the years I’ve made a lot of handmade gifts for my friends and family, and … well … I think they might be getting a sick of it. My mother’s kitchen looks like it’s been taken over by my sewing room. I applied to do the fair in order to have an outlet for my craft, and to fund the next round of crafts. I hope that everyone can come take a look on the day.
As well as the upcycled wool cushions I’ve been making for awhile (at the fair I will have cortina, robot, and waxeye designs), I will be selling washable fabric ecolids, which are great for taking salads to summer BBQs in style, or covering food in the fridge, hand stitched apples and pears for wee gifts or brightening up your Christmas tree, and some environmentally friendly fire starters. I’ll also be selling my collection of poetry. Here’s a sneak peak of a few of my wares:
