It’s now in its 9th year, but we still haven’t made it down to the Contemporary Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey!
It’s happening this weekend, 15-17 June 2012, in a beautiful setting in the Devon countryside. We know a lot of people, both exhibitors and buyers, that attend and they all say how wonderful it is.
As well as all the fantastic contemporary craft that’s on show and for sale, there are workshops, demonstrations and a live music. It’s definitely in the diary for next year!
We picked up this vintage sewing box at a market last week. It’s made of wicker with blue plastic lid and weave detailing. We neatened up the interior with some matching floral fabric from the same 1960s era.
These boxes are perfect for sewers & crafters who love a bit of vintage – you’ll never waste hours looking for those elusive needles, threads or pins ever again!
They always prove popular in our shop. The little montage above shows a few of the boxes that have recently passed through our hands or we currently have in stock.
Aren’t these roses beautiful? I bet they’re dead easy to make… I only wish that I paid more attention and showed a bit more interest when my mother tried to teach me to crochet when I was young!
