Do you have someone on your list who likes crime? What about concrete ? Maybe some silk ruffles to beautify a Zoom background? I’ve got quite a selection of unusual gifts in my online shop mainly under £50. A lot of my shop has been hibernating since I moved, so if you spot something that says ‘coming soon’ just drop me a line and I’ll see if I can find it for you! I’ll be posting until Monday 19th December so there’s plenty of time for UK shoppers.
The fantastic Selvedge Winter Fair is coming up next week! I have visited the show a few times but this will be my first time exhibiting. The fair is always amazing. Chelsea Old Town Hall is a stunning building and the main hall, side rooms and corridors are crammed with textile gorgeousness. There are designer-makers, antique textile dealers, sellers of exquisite haberdashery, hand-printed fabrics and so much more. It really is like the magazine brought to life. Wonderful stuff. It will be hard not to spend every penny I take!
My recommendations for this years show include Asa Parsons, John Gillow and Linda Bloomfield. There are loads of people I don’t know too, so I know it will be a treasure hunt – finding new and exciting things. I like the look of Anna Ray, Avani and Parna.
I’ll be showing my smaller works, perfectly suited for the home. I’m hoping to have new trapunto quilting kits as well (fingers crossed!) and I will have little bits too like a new range of postcards and handmade greeting cards.
