Happy Monday All! Well I’ve got a very busy week ahead planning for my first show in 5 years!! I’m exhibiting alongside 5 other Designer/Makers and Artists at the beautiful Bedern Hall in York, in the Inspired group’s annual Christmas show. There’ll be Jewellery, Textiles, Ceramics, Painting, Printmaking and ‘lil ol’ me with my Art Prints, Stationery and possibly some cheeky little textile numbers if my sewing machine behaves this week! It’s also going to be York’s huge St Nicholas Christmas Fayre too this weekend so it’ll be very festive with plenty to see and do.
I used to exhibit at craft fairs, design shows and trade shows a lot but as I began focusing on purely the pattern design side of my work more, I decided to have a break from them for a while, which turned into a good few years! So, when my very good friend Jo Bagshaw (who’s an amazing Jeweller by the way!) asked me to join their Inspired group this year with my new range of products I jumped at the chance! Well, if I’m honest, I was a little nervous as it’s been so long but it didn’t take much persuading! They’re such a friendly, fun group who I used to exhibit with at Christmas so I know at the very least it will be so nice to catch up with them all again. But with my business hat on, it will hopefully be a great opportunity to get my new products out there, get some feedback and hopefully make a few sales!
So if you’re about in York this weekend please do pop by and say hello as it would be so nice to meet you. I’ll be there all weekend and there’s even a cafe at Bedern Hall too so you can grab a cuppa and a bite to eat. We’ll also be staying open till 8pm on the Friday evening for late night shopping and a glass of wine…..now are you tempted?!
Wish me luck and really hope to see you there!
