A year has flown by since I exhibited at City Hall last year. After months of frenzied making & developing some new products, set-up day arrived! As usual everything took lots longer than anticipated and I spent the whole day getting the stand ready. The organisers had done themselves proud again by drawing a good crowd to the iconic venue. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by a diverse group of lovely makers: Hattie Kerrs Knitwear, Jane Kenney Jewellery, sculptural ceramist Sue Hanna & illustrator Fi Powers of Fiink Design, which made the event particularly enjoyable! Made By Hand offered the opportunity to launch a range of handbags – a new addition to my repertoire; it was brilliant to have 2 snapped up over the weekend.
