Talent for Textiles

Yesterday was the Talent for Textiles fair in Ilminster.  A great event in a wonderful venue.  The stall worked out fine and the boxes worked a treat.  The table was a bit longer than my desk, thank goodness so I was able to improve on my mock up. 


 


It is always so lovely to see my customers at these events as I only communicate with my customers by email or phone usually, which is the downside to having a mail order business.

The next event I will be at is the Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury. I know many of you are coming to sell and to buy and I am really looking forward to meeting a few people who I have known for some time but have never met!




For those of you who can't come don't worry I have added listed loads of new fabrics to my website and will continue to add more so that you will not miss out. Pin It

Your stall really looked fab, Donna. Am salivating over seeing it in the flesh. Feeling knackered though, with all the preparations!

Can't wait to meet you for real Donna,

Looking forward to seeing you too. Your stand looks lovely! Mine is going to look a right old mess, to much stuff not enough space and I cant fit one of my shelves in the car with all the rest of it so dont quite know how its going to work out! Yes I packed the car today and it took about an hour to work out how to get it in, hope I sell a lot as it might not go back in again!!!! Jane xxx

Amy said...

Your stand looks fab as ever. Hoping I might get to see it in the flesh sometime soon x Good luck with all the fairs x

Your table looks amazing. So wish I wasn't so far away that I could come to these fairs, we are sadly lacking on the West Cost of Scotland!
