The Show...

Wow…what a crazy couple of weeks it has been! The Stitches and Craft Show was brilliant! I had such a great time…spending all day surrounded by such fun, talented, interesting, inspiring people! My ruffle clutch bags sold like hot cakes. I accidentally sold the one that my sister desperately wanted for a wedding…oops! I have to make her an extra special one so she will forgive me!

The clutch in question...

My stall set up...

The absolute highlight of the show for me was meeting Kate from Little Bird at Elliot…a shop in Port Elliot, SA that sells beautiful indie designed pieces. Kate has made an order with me and soon my bags and belts will be in her gorgeous shop…just in time for Spring! I am so flattered, amazed and super excited about it!

Over the next few weeks I will do a write up of all the beautiful stalls that really inspired me from The Stitches and Craft Show…stay tuned!!

The first inspirational stall holder I will feature is Lisa from "The Red Thread" Lisa had the space next to me. Her set up was beautiful! She was selling the most gorgeous vintage inspired doll kits and hand printed fabric pieces you have ever seen! Lisa also creates quirky, one of a kind art works that are just DIVINE! She has a great blog too… . I highly recommend you check it out!! Thank you Lisa for our lovely chats, your great advice and making the week extra fun!
The Red Thread's stall set-up...gorgeous!! (sorry about the not so gorgeous photo!)
