Hopefully our next Craft Fair on Saturday 27 July will be busier especially as alot of people seemed to be on holiday in June.
Getting busy writing poems as orders and hand finishing them before framing. I have so many different ones now, I'm running out of room on my table when exhibiting them.....so many designs and types of frames etc - spoilt for choice
Check out the website for some idea of how they're breeding

Ellen, the organiser, Who has lived in the Village for more than 20 years, said that the Village hall was the perfect setting for a regular fair for local crafters to showcase their goods. Ellen, who writes poems and frames them said: "We have only been going for a year, and already there is Waiting list for stall holders. The atmosphere is very good and the quality of goods is very high. What we don't want to do is to have the same stalls, we want the stalls to be different."
The money raised from the events goes to the upkeep of the village hall, Which is part of the Methodist Church, and there is a musician to add to the atmosphere. Volunteers at the church help on the day and open the cafe for Visitors. Ellen said: "We are now looking for stalls Which are used to being outside.The atmosphere is really good, and the quality of goods is very high. There are unusual gifts on sale, and the stallholders want to spend time talking to visitors about their craft, regardless of whether they buy the goods or not. Ellen said that the church volunteers played a huge part in the success of the fair by helping out on the day"
