Make it a handmade Christmas and come shopping at my studio building, Makers’ Yard, where you can buy from the other tenants in the studio building as well as me. I’ll have a lot of samples for sale (cushions, bags, scarves, brooches etc), as well as discounts on books, fabrics, sewing tools and gift vouchers for sewing enthusiasts.
Please come along to the exclusive evening event with mince pies and mulled wine on Friday 15th 6-9pm or any time on Saturday 16th November 10-4pm when there will be additional artists and makers selling their work too.
I am delighted to have be accepted to show two pieces of new work at this lovely craft gallery run by my good friend Jennifer Collier in rural Staffordshire. I’ve exhibited and taught there several times and it is a truly magical place to visit. Not only is there a great gallery with changing exhibitions, there are four studio spaces which you can nosey around!
