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!


New Outlet

I popped into Dartmoor Chapel Crafts yesterday to collect my work. We have closed for a few weeks and will reopen on the last wekkend of October then stay open each weekend til first or second week in December. Until then my crochet will be available at Kooky Nook , a lovely new shop just opened in Okehampton. It was The Artful Rodgers – who also sold my work – but they ceased trading due to other commitments. I came straight from the chapel to this shop so had all my crochet with me. Took it all in so Kate, the owner, could have a rummage and pick out what she would like to sell. Well, she wants it all!! Great πŸ™‚

The only problem is that I don’t have any animals available, but I will make one for Kooky Nook as a demo then I can take orders for more. Where I am going to find the time is another issue!!

Meanwhile, its a beautiful morning and am waiting for a text from husband to go and pick him up on Dartmoor – he has been camping the last two nights. Rather him than me, its pretty cold trhought the night now.

Don’t forget, its a total eclipse of the moon and also a supermoon – so the moon is passing through the earths shadow and will turn a blood red and it is also at its closest to the earth so will appear much bigger. Shame we will have to set the alarms for 3am Monday to see it! Next one isn’t til 2030 something so try and see this one πŸ™‚

Craft All Weekend

I will be manning Dartmoor Chapel Crafts this weekend from 12 til 5, the weather is looking good so why not plan a lovely walk on Dartmoor and pop in say hello and have a look at our local crafts.

The makers of Moretonhampstead based Green Shoes are now selling their beautifully handmade shoes in the chapel, take a look at their website here. Tempted to buy a pair for myself!

There has been a steady flow of people coming through the doors since it opened and we are now wondering if we should keep it open during the Autumn. This would be great for me as I can then make and sell scarves, cowls and mitts, which have always been popular. We may be having a Christmas opening too, will keep you posted.

Well. now I have to concentrate on todays tasks – pruning wisteria!

Have a great weekend πŸ™‚
