Cotton, Cake & Cloth ...

Hello .. I have just climbed back on the wagon to tell you about the next Vintage & Handmade Textile & Fashion Fair which is on this Saturday.. yes.. that's Saturday the 4th of June. Go and get a pen and make a big cross on your calendar now before you forget. I speak as one who has to write everything down in triplicate these days.
The fair will cater for all of you who have a fabric fetish or fascination with vintage fashion, who like to collect cotton reels or twiddle with colourful twines and threads.. It will be heaven for all haberdashery addicts and is sure to satisfy those who love sewing.. Clothkits will be there.. I for one am a big fan and still own my very first Clothkits cat that my mother made for me back in the 1960's.. We have the company of Handmade Living a new exciting magazine which combines craft, cooking and home style etc.. There will be our regular lovelies such as Sal's Snippets with her vast collection of vintage feed sack fabrics.. Lizzie The Washerwoman with wonderful French brocante and vintage fashions.. Viv from Hen's Teeth with her gorgeous embroidered purses...Sarah Hardaker with some super fabrics of her own design. Beautiful antique fabrics from Phillipa Bowes, Donna Flower whose display of haberdashery items are simply a work of art. You will have to come along and see for yourself.. so the important thing to know is the fair starts at 10 a.m until 4.00 p.m and is held at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall. We look forward to welcoming you and hope a jolly time is had by all!
P.s If textiles and fashion is not your thing.. then maybe we can tempt you with some fine tea and cake in our tea room.

Glad to see your back on the wagon!! So looking forward to Saturday, have lots of new treasures and there are boxes piled high in the conservatory as we speak ready to be rummaged through. Have a great week and see you on Saturday.

Ohhhhhhhh...just reading Lizzie and Hesta's comments should be enough to send a tingle of excitement down any textile lover's spine...certainly has mine.
Can't wait. x

Thought I might make this one, but hisband has just announced that it clashes with a music thing of some importance. Bother. I can't stand my ground as I was out last Sat and it is his birthday this week.

Oh one of these days I will make it along to one of your wonderful fairs. I feel kind of left out that I've never been. What with a very busy little boy and a very iminent house move going to such delights is just a dream for now. Maybe in a year or two I will arrange a weekend at my Mum and Dads when one of your fairs is on, leave hubbie and little F with them and pop down to Chipping Sodbury(a little nearer from their place than High Wycombe!)for an afternoon for vintage fabric loveliness. I would so love to catch up with you again. Seems hardly a minute since that miserable day in Chipping Norton Town Hall but so much has happened since. Hope this weekends fair is a success. Fiona x
