Sale Arts Trail 2016 Christmas Bazaar
Christmas came early yesterday as I took part in the Sale Arts Trail Bazaar.
Over 40 designers took part including a few new friends like knitwear designer

There was a good steady flow of visitors. Sadly, I only had a brief chance to literally whiz around the other stands, but I did admire the work of furniture designer Neb Abbott. His lighting display had some wonderfully patterned structures to them.
This was my Fishink stand, great to have a bit extra wall space (thank you Sophie) to really show off my larger pieces. Thanks to a couple of friendly, regular clients, giving me new commissions to make for them, I had a good show. If anyone else would like something special making for their walls do drop me a line.

A couple more familiar faces here and there, and a cleverly co-ordinated stand from Bronwen Simpson who works from Marketplace Studios, Stockport and makes beautifully steamed, ladies felt hats and pure wool scarves. She looked very dapper with her pheasant-feathered hat !
Thanks to the organisors/exhibitors for their company and support yesterday, and to everyone who came (including Craig and Annette) and purchased something to help support local small businesses …what a pleasure to work within such a great designer community.
