SELVEDGE SPRING FAIR - STROUD - 16TH MAY

 

It was the final stop for the Selvedge Spring Fair tour and this time it was in Stroud, Gloucestershire. How very refreshing to be out of London! Hosted at The Subscription Rooms, surrounded by wonderful people and met lots of wonderful people too. Got to explore some sights before and after the fair too. Thank you, Selvedge!

Couldn't resist! A new ring by Rachel Eardey Somerset. An eidelwiess cut from a 1988 Austrian coin. Talented.

Couldn't resist (again!). The Basket Room bag now belongs to I! A beautiful social business celebrating basketry from Kenya and Ghana.

A stroll around the countryside surrounding Stroud... ahh, bliss...


BUST CRAFTACULAR - LONDON - 17TH MAY

Headed back down to London the next day it was definitely a busy, albeit fun-weekend. What a great array of stallholders in the airy and spacious York Hall of Bethnal Green London. Sharing a stall with Rodology, we all had lots of fun it seemed! Familiar faces from previous Craftaculars and other fairs and new faces too. Lovely. Thank you, Bust!
