Christmas Craft Fair...

Last Sunday I went to a wonderfully festive Craft Fair at The Ropewalk in Barton.
As well as lots of beautiful stalls, the resident designers' studios were also open.
Here's the studio of hand weaver/ designer Janine Knight.
Janine makes the most beautiful creatures...
Just look at those ears!
Here is the fabulous studio belonging to Reginald Swinney Illustration:
I loved looking at the inspiration wall (I think perhaps I am just a little nosey!)
I also loved the quirky stall belonging to Carolyn Short.
Just look at these brooches!
Look how funky this Christmas fairy is!
I also had the pleasure to have a chat to Gillian Hobson, she makes the most beautiful glass pieces in her studio.
Nicky Dillerstone also had a stall at the Fair.
I have admired her work for a few years now, and she has a wicked sense of humour.
It was a lovely morning, and I left full of Christmas cheer and bagged a few presents to boot!


  1. I love the inspiration wall too - it's a piece of art itself!

  2. Those art dolls are wonderful, and the glass makes me very happy. Looks like a very good do, Mrs B! xxx

  3. Now that looks like it was a really interesting fair full of interesting makes and set out originally too, certainly beats some of the ones I've been to. x

  4. Thanks for commenting chucks.
    It really is a wonderful Fair, all the stalls are beautifully displayed with fab wares x


Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
