new to handmade

The craft fair at the university the week before last was great, it was nice to see lots of handmade regulars selling alongside reetsweet's crafers. Two girls new to handmade were selling at the fair, and will make their handmade debut on Sunday at our Christmas fair. Luckily I've got a few snaps from the fair to share...

The first is Jodie Anna, who makes pretty jewellery using lovely vintage patterns and images of whimsical delights. I love her sewing machine brooches.

And secondly is Rebecca Slow, who makes a huge range of handmade goodies. My favourite items on show at the fair were her jam jar covers, which is such a great idea, and badges and brooches using vintage fabric.

Our Christmas fair has a poster, at last! Starring a christmassy finger puppet made by me, and put together by Hannah Ramley, who'll be at the event selling her own wares alongside some creative pals.

Hope you can make it! And don't forget the 2for1 tea and cake (details in a previous blog post!!)

Craft "sister" reetsweet has now got a shiney new website. You go girl! It's super cute and I look forward to checking it regularly for all my craft news! I've just been going through the gallery smiling and getting giddy about TOMORROW'S fair at the uni.
