One day until the fayre...

Only one day until the Creations Christmas Craft Fayre!  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there and all the lovely things which will be for sale.
If you are unfamiliar with West Bergholt look out for the yellow direction posters around the village -  the Orpen Hall is on Lexden Road (next to the football pitch/ tennis courts and children's playground).

Meet the Stallholders - Christmas 2011

Pauline from Knitcro
I crochet and knit anything from bed socks, baby wear to adult cardigans, jumpers, tops to blankets, throws and so much more.
I do about 10% of my work without a pattern, following customer requirements but mostly I work from patterns knitting and crochet, that customers have chosen from my selection or bought themselves.

Nicola Morse
I will be selling jewellery including necklaces, bracelets and earrings created from my own handcrafted polymer clay beads.
I work with polymer clay (Fimo) to make my beads which are baked to harden. These beads together with other spacer beads made of wood, silver, bronze and copper are used to create my jewellery.

Meet the Stallholders - Christmas 2011

Rebecca from Poshyarns
I love working with gorgeous linens, Liberty of London Tana Lawn prints and dipping into my huge jar of vintage buttons whenever possible.
I use these materials to create a variety of textiles including children's clothing, soft toys, decorative home items, phone cases, brooches and other accessories.  Unable to part with even the tiniest of scraps I try to incorporate every precious item of fabric into my work.

Meet the Stallholders - Christmas 2011

Karen from Needful Things
I studied dressmaking and textiles and grew a passion for seeking out gorgeous fabrics, especially those with a linen content as it is a pleasure to cut and sew.  Beautiful cushions, funky bunting and padded hearts are created with beauty and quality in mind.
Many of the cushions are a 'one off', some have been made using designer fabrics.  Everything is individually crafted and finished with care.
I'm sure you will find your needful thing!

Hannah from Little Knits
I make a variety of handknitted items from cowls to baby hats. I use high quality yarn which is always very soft and luxurious.
My items are unique and I love to experiment with different designs and textures. I have been knitting for a number of years taught by my mum at a young age.

Meet the Stallholders - Christmas 2011

Kirsty from Captivated Magpie
We work with all types of beads and materials from semi-precious stones to steampunk charms and a mix of natural textures to make our jewellery.  There will be a range of styles and textures for sale at the fayre, from delicate jewellery to more chunkier styles.  We will also have shamballa/ macrame bracelets which are very popular at the moment.
As well as having jewellery to purchase on the day we will also be taking orders if you would like to buy a design in another colour.  These can be made and delivered within 2 weeks or sooner.
