I will be manning the till at Sew Vintage today and we are having a sale. I have already bought myself a lovely bright rug for my spare room and have got my eye on a pretty mug….and a bowl… that’s today wages gone!

Could really do with more customers coming through the door. It’s tough having a shop in such a small place, another shop,a general store,  is closing in a week (not surprising though, with a Spar shop offering better quality it could not compete). There are more houses being built here and there seems to be more younger families so fingers crossed there will be more people popping in.

Don’t forget that I shall be at the Quay in Exeter tomorrow 10 til 5, so please come down. The weather is full of sunshine and showers but we are undercover 🙂

As well as my work, I shall also be selling some Sew Vintage items including handmade bags and embroidered vintage linen. If there’s space I will have a few picture frames made by another friend.  Worth a look!

See you there x


Exeter Here I Come!

Sunday May 3rd is getting closer so pop it in the diary, Inside Outside Craft Market down at the quay! As well as my crochet there are another 29 stalls including my friend Cher of SiaSar, who makes very sweet childrens clothing. There is also jewellery, cards, candles, soaps, textiles and art…not forgetting the live music and face painting 🙂 It is under cover so come even if its a bit wet and support your local crafters.


But wait… another small, yet still worthwhile event on May 2nd in Okehampton is happening at Rockin Beads, a shop that sells fab beads and lots of lovely yarn, definitely worth a look (I hear there is cake too :))

If you do come to the Exeter fair, please say hello, would be lovely to meet you 🙂

Another Fair Confirmed

Very excited to have a pitch at the Inside Outside Craft Market in Exeter on the quay, Sunday 3rd May! It does mean I have to get hooking a lot as its very near and stock levels are a bit low so am going to have to put my sewing machine practice on hold for a bit.

Exeter is a lovely small city and the quay is full of interesting shops selling and making on site including an ironmonger who makes lovely garden ornaments (I have some), antiques, furniture and various crafts. There is also a number of cafes, Lutzy’s being my favourite – very popular and fills up quick! There are also lots of activities that you can get involved with. Canoes and kayaks are available for hire as well as bicycles. The quay now boasts the South Wests largest climbing wall if you are feeling a bit more adventurous. More info here at Exeter City Council

The craft market is in the Transit Shed which is actually not a shed but an open sided buliding which was once used to store goods when unloaded.


Lets hope the weather will be like the photo!! 🙂
