The Modern Makers Fair

Just a few pictures of my stand at The Modern Makers Fair: I've got a lovely large space with a floor-to-ceiling picture window of the view overlooking the sea!

The Fair is arranged over 3 floors of the hotel, with dozens of exhibitors selling all sorts of beautiful handmade things. It's not too late if you're in Cornwall and fancy coming along; the Fair is on again tomorrow from 10am till 4pm. Tickets have not sold out so you can just turn up at the door; entry is free. The Bedruthan Steps Hotel is at Mawgan Porth on the north Coast about 15 minutes from Newquay.

 Nice to be making cushions again! I love to match all the delicious colours of my old Sylko threads to the fabrics I'm using,
 including this beautiful length of French curtain that I recently bought from Sue Meager.
 I'm making for a fair that I'm doing for the first time, The 'Modern Makers Fair' at the Bedruthan Steps Hotel near Newquay this coming weekend, 23rd and 24th April (see side bar). There will be over 50 contemporary designer-makers from Cornwall and further afield selling their work. Tickets are free but must be downloaded in advance via the website, by clicking here.
As well as cushions I will also have a collection of my shell collages for sale, both large and small, and plenty of handmade cards. 
I am on a 'demonstration' stand, so I shall be attempting to recreate a little corner of my studio and doing a bit of stitching and arranging so that visitors can get an idea of my working methods and what inspires me. Hope some of you can make it along! x
