Christmas Market Dates

Its November already!! Eek, got a lot of crocheting to do for my stall at Castle Drogo’s Christmas Market on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November – 3 weeks away!! Details for the event here

If you haven’t been before, Castle Drogo is near the village of Drewsteignton, between Whiddon Down and Moretonhampstead, about 15 mins from A30.

There will be lots of stalls selling craft, food and drink, locally made. Well worth a visit πŸ™‚ Theres a really good large cafe and lots of lovely walks, we often go there to walk our dog. Don’t forget the castle too!! Come along and support local makers.

If you do come, let me know you read it here and I’ll give you a little thank you gift.

Its the season to be giving afterall!

Getting Busy With The Hook

Not had a lot of free time recently, as you can tell by my absence! Work has been full on, which is great. Am also seeing my personal trainer twice a week and am weirdly enjoying it.

Never been one for exercise (which is why I need a trainer, to keep me going!!), so suprised myself when I realised its sort of fun. It does help that Jamie is brilliant –Β  patient and calm with (thankfully) a sense of humour! I would highly recommend having a go. He works at a gym which is part of a physiotherapy centre. If you are in Devon and in the Tavistock area heres where I go – Tavistock Physio Clinic

I have had some time to get on with crochet. After booking a space at the National Trust Castle Drogo Xmas fair in November, I thought I’d better crack on with some stock. I made some fingerless gloves last year and they sold well so am making more!

I have also made a lovely chunky cowl using pure wool with a big button fastening…

Both available in my Etsy Shop

It is laste Sunday afternoon and having been out in the pouring rain with the dog, I think its time to relax….with a hook and some yarn πŸ˜‰

 

Saturday Fair

I have three more days of frantic crocheting before the Chistmas Food and Craft Fair at Castle Drogo, Drewsteignton, Devon. I haven’t been to this fair before, so not sure what to expect, just hoping for lots of customers!

I think I will have enough stock – animals, blankets, brooches, gloves, scarves…..I have also made up some gift sets in jars which include a facecloth, cotton pads and soap from my lovely friend at The Dartmoor Soap Co.

Also managed to get another two crocheted pals finished. Anyone need a cuddle?

The weather is supposed to be turning colder so am hoping to sell lots of cosy gloves and scarves πŸ™‚

If you are coming along how about popping over to Chagford where the annual Wonderworks Contemporary Craft Fair will be, Β on both Saturday and Sunday?

Don’t forget, if you see anything on my blog or fb page, just get in touch, can ship anywhere πŸ™‚

Craft Fair

There is a craft fair at Belstone this Saturday (7th) in the village hall. Though I will not be selling myself, my lovely friend atΒ The Dartmoor Soap Co will have my face cloths and cotton pads for sale as they compliment her fabulous soaps πŸ™‚

I am trying to get more stock ready for the fair at Drogo and once thats happened I will be getting back to selling on Etsy as well as getting on with a few commissions from friends.

If you haven’t already done so, please like my facebook page, when I get to 100 likes I will be giving away a small token of appreciation to one lovely liker πŸ™‚ Link is here at Loopy Lou

Time for me to go open up at Sew Vintage. There’s lots of new stock so will take some pics to tempt you!
