I hope all is well with you and yours.
Well, a week has flown by since the close the The Contemporary Craft Festival
After 6 months of preparation, the Festival is all over in a blink of an eye.   I think the best part of the show was meeting up with old friends, making new friends and chatting to visitors.   I was up against the most incredible competition.   So much stunning and very desirable contemporary craft.
Here is my stand, that my current husband created for me.   I was really pleased with the look of the stand, as I wanted an English, month of June, garden theme.   The only change I would make if ever there is a next time, would be to spend the money and hire a much bigger stand.    The weather had been very changeable with heavy downpours, so visitors arrived laden with rain coats, brollies, bags unfortunately, the 2 x 2m stand would only accommodate a couple of people at a time.   All a rich learning curve, I would say.

Other Exhibitor links may already know, but whose work is to me, is exquisite.
