The Selvedge Fair At Pendle...(Pinch me, am I dreaming!?!)

A couple of weeks ago I took part in the Selvedge Fair at the beautiful Pendle Heritage Centre.
I was very nervous indeed and couldn't actually believe that I had my stall there!
I had a mixture of paintings, prints, cards, embroidery and mixed media for sale.
You might recognise some of these characters from previous blog posts!
It was amazing to meet so many internet friends and folk who read this blog.
(Thank you so much for coming to chat if you're reading this!)
It was really busy, full of very happy textile-lovers.
I just had to photograph these amazing boots!
All the artists and stall holders were lovely, here's the beautiful work by Dear Emma...
And I love the aprons by The Stitch Society...
And just look at the magical world created by Karen Shapley...
Lilac Pearl's customised garments were so delicate and beautiful...
And there were so many treasures to tempt you at Magpie Maison...
Corinne Young's textile art was stunning, just look at all the detail!
I was also thrilled to meet Priscilla Edwards, as I've been a fan of her work for a long time.
It was a brilliant day, full of kindred spirits and creativity.
I'd like to say a huge thanks to Corinne, Fiona and Selvedge Magazine for organising such an amazing event, and for inviting me along.

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.
