Craft Fair Alert!

Just wanted to post a quick note about an event I'll be attending tomorrow: it's the Summer Craft Fair being held in the Village Hall at Crantock near Newquay, Cornwall from 10am to 4pm.

If you're in the area, drop in - it'd be great to see you! Hopefully pictures will follow soon.

If you have a local arts and crafts event in the South West to promote, let me know!

Mary Portas: Handmade needs you!

Social networks are buzzing with excitement as designer/makers get behind UK Handmade's campaign to enlist the help of Mary Portas (Mary Queen of Shops) in our quest to bring our handmade goods to the masses.

She is the 'Chosen One'... a modern day 'Jim'll Fix It' if you like, but with considerably better hair and far more style! Will she help us? We're counting on it!

For more information on the campaign and how you can help spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and on the Mary Portas forum, see the UK Handmade blog.

headbands for vintage goodwood

armcandii are busy making headbands for vintage goodwood. one complete and one in progress. they will be worn by shaz and amy, the cocktail waitresses at the silver rocketeer trailer bar!

the bar is a converted american airstream trailor restored to its former speldour and will be a sure 'must visit' location at vintage goodwood.

of course armcandii hope that their headbands will also make an impact. we'll let you know ....
