Kirstie’s Handmade Fair

Last weekend I was lucky enough to work in the Coats tent at the first ever Handmade Fair at Hampton Court. It was a beautiful setting and a really fun weekend- if a little tiring!

OurΒ tent hosted up to 100 people for half hour/ hour long taster workshops. We had a wonderful group of tutors and designers on the stage, including Sarah Hatton, Jane Crowfoot, Stuart Hillard, Mr X stitch and Sharon Brant. I was part of the team of ‘knitting fairies’ making sure everyone was okay and giving one to one help where needed. Teaching a tent of 100 people to crochet in an hour requires extra help!

There was a lovely atmosphere at the show and you could really tell that all the exhibitors had been hand-picked. My favourites included Lou Brown Deigns, Toft Alpaca and Sew Over It.

I can’t wait for next year!
