Crafty thinking

I’ve not had much time in the last week or so to do much crafting. Changing my working hours to accommodate my daughter and her nursery, now means a new routine to get used too.

I have been able to start investigating the possibility of a craft stall at a market or event as I’d really like to get out there into the world. Finding an event has proved rather difficult. There are lots of major craft shows like the one last weekend in Manchester, but local ones seem to be few and far between. Speaking to other local crafters, they also comment on this and the difficulty in getting a stall if you do find an event.

So I’ve started to think about a suggestion from my Mother-in-Law about hosting craft parties. I’m thinking I’d like to have a few hours one afternoon in November maybe with a few Christmassy nibbles and wine and then have a stand of all my cards and gifts. If it’s successful then it could become a regular event and could include other local crafters.

What would you want from an event? And would you stay to buy cards and gifts?

I would really like to know your thoughts on this idea. Please leave me a comment.

Happy crafting
