The journey of a new designer-maker. A City and Guilds qualified felt maker, I love the magic of turning a pile of fluffy wool fibre into beautiful and functional fine felt and exploring new textile techniques.
I attended my first craft fair as a seller today. It was the annual Christmas Fayre where I do my day job. I approached it as a marketing opportunity so was pleasantly surprised by how much of my work sold (about 10% of the stock I took with me).
It was lovely to chat to the people I normally work with about crafting and had one person sign up to join our arts and crafts group which was a bonus :o)
I'm afraid the pictures I took are a bit rubbish but hopefully this will give you a flavour:
