The show is set in the main foyer of the Hanson st studios and starts at 11am each day – there is also a great little cafe for coffee and soup. Come along and meet the artists themselves! Come and buy handmade , unique gifts this year for your loved ones!
Here are some images of the show last weekend – this weekend there will be even more things to choose from! There really are some fantastic bargins to be had!
My computer went down my sewing machine has bust! – it feels like the sky is falling on my head!
on a positive note I phoned Invercottage and they definately are going to place an order for their exclusive Maclachlan tartan scarves in Jan so that is positive! Also Maison Cadeaux is going to take some sale or return! Things are going up and down here! I really felt as if I had my arms cut off when the server was down though!
I got some black watch tartan at a good price so I was going to make a black watch check scarf for Saturdays craft fair – I’ll have to see if I can borrow some one elses machine!
The craft fair I am doing is ‘Made in the Shade’ at the light house GlaSGOW 10.30 til 5.30 this sat 25th of October.
last sunday me and tootsie went to a farm called knowetop farm I think…thatas the right spelling…its in the middle of a housing estate in dumbarton. Its a charity community run and was brilliant for the kids
There were lots of animals in huge fields though they all came running to get food and loved being petted by the children
Its free entry, they have a cafe, a soft play area, shop to buy food for ducks,goats,pigs, a barn full of guinea pigs and bunnys. The shop is full of charity items and hand knitted clothes. It was great fun! We’ll be going back soon!
