Shepton Goodies.

 The craft fair at Shepton Mallet yesterday wasn't brilliant, each year there seems to be less and less stalls but still managed to spend a little bit of money but not a lot.

A couple of dies a small stamp and  some stepper cards and some Cosmic glue, also bought other packs of cards for our raffle prizes at Club night.


I did enjoy a little sewing workshop we did making a Celtic design using fusible bias binding which I hadn't seen before and we were aslso taught how to make Suffolk Puffs or Yo Yo's as they call them in America... Obviously only having an hour this is all we had time for so need to finished the project off but will show you when its completed.  I also purchased a mini iron for patchwork and some more lovely binding....

Hopefully I will have a card to show you tomorrow..

I have looked at those mini irons before so I will be interested to hear your opinion of it. I was very tempted to go but the list of exhibitors was not very inspiring and I think I have forgotten how to make cards. Hope you have fun with your new dies. xx Flora

Enjoy your new stash. Unfortunately the show that comes here to Belfast twice a year is not worth going to anymore.

Can't say I've seen the fusible binding and I work in a quilt shop, sounds like it could be fun. Have you used the Hot Fix ribbon? Love your design and Yo-Yo's are a lot fun to make, they have hearts and butterfly's as well. Have fun with all your goodies.
hugs, Ruth Ann

It's always fun to visit craft shows. I never did go to any in the UK, but last year I found the Mega Meet in Novi - it was fab. And I'm going to this year's show on 9th and 10th May - can't wait. I'm taking some classes and will probably come home with a few bits and pieces!!

Enjoy playing with your stash. And I must say that I do like the celtic design you created.

Your little workshop project looks lovely, quite impressive for an hour. It's better on the purse if there isn't quite as much there!

I know what you mean Anne, our local shows aren't what they used to be... I suppose internet shopping has killed off the bricks and mortar places!! Nice little haul and the celtic design looks a fun technique :0)
