winter market dates

I definitely have a problem with piles at the moment... piles of music garlands, poetry snowflakes, little golden crocheted snowflakes, tree decorations, bags, everlasting spruce wreaths, ribbon, tissue, card, labels... on the table, on the floor, on the ironing board, on the chairs, windowsills, shelves and on top of still more piles of fabric, magazines and boxes... all these are gathering together in my artroom for last-minute assembly and packing up.

I'm really pleased to say that I have been accepted for two winter craft markets in South Manchester this year, as well as having the opportunity to present a selection of gifts and pretty things for sale at my friend Anne's gardening classes. I'm really hoping that these wintry offerings will sell well and help to fund art and craft materials over the next year. I would absolutely love to see you if you live nearby and are able to come to either of the markets... details are below.

I'd love to see all the things on your stall - the tasters you've given look beautiful.

Hope the markets are a great success.

i know what you mean about the piles! I'm drowning in piles of china! Good luck with the fairs - your things are lovely; I'm sure you'll do well. I used to live in Stockport as a child!

I love that star inside the pine-like circle!

Must try to get to one of the Fairs, the Whitworth sounds best!

Wish I lived near enough to come. I have made some little crochet decorations like yours though mine are without the ring of evergreen which I think sets yours off beautifully. Good luck with the sales.

Again, really lovely. Did you make those boxes? I've been looking for some but they were too expensive.
Your pictures give me a lovely tasteful Christmasy feel. Maybe I should ditch the gaudy 'every colour there is' scheme!

What "beautiful things for sale"! I envy those who will come and buy something to decorate their homes with! Elegant and stylish as always! I try to imagine the artistic "mess" in your house that isn't that unpleasant, is it? Congratulations on participating in the Christmas fairs!:-))))

I can't come to the markets but I love what you've made for them. the silver crochet star is very charming. I'm sure you'll do well.

Oh I love that little wreath and crochet star. I would buy that in a flash. Are you selling online at the moment?

Frances said...

Oh Sue, I do envy those who will be lucky to see all your wares at the fairs! All that you've shown us have your unique touch.

I foresee full funding of all your projects, and more. xo

Your crafts are gorgeous.I think having piles of things about are an inevitable result of making things! I hope to come to one of the winter craft fairs you mentioned, am really looking forward to it.
