Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated!
Should I bother apologising for my extended absence? Would anyone believe it? Is there anyone still bothering to check this blog? lol
I have been so unutterably busy for the last few weeks that I've been having to check my diary to see if I've booked in any time for sleep!
Last weekend saw me trolling my wares at the Hidden Art Design Fair at Godolphin House. It was a lovely venue with a very professional layout and a proper shell scheme. Although I can't claim to have made my fortune I now have a massively extended database of potential customers, a new gallery to supply and a couple of enquiries from magazines wanting to feature my work. I also managed to secure 2 dates for providing workshops for some local textiles groups. All very positive. The stand looked the best yet - here's a pic
And my new 'ranges' of work seemed to attract lots of attention (and a couple of orders)
Here's the new style bags
And a random shot of a stripey coffee cosy and mug cosy set :)
I'm off to Fibrefest on Friday - no rest for the wicked eh? There's 11 weeks between Fibrefest and the next show (Eco Design Fair in London in November) so I'm going to treat myself to 2 weeks off to catch up with some much needed design work and finding out if my friends remember who I am. Buying them coffee and cake usually does the trick - lol.
There's a very exciting development potentially in the offing which (if it happened) would mean lots of spondooliks and quite a bit of recognition but I don't want to talk about it in case I jinx it (rolls eyes @ self)
So, my lovelies - if any of you are coming to Fibrefest please pop by and say hello (Faerynuff - looking forward to seeing you there :) )
