Its been a while!
The last 3 months have been amazing! I have been brilliantly busy and now need to take Christmas time to decide Spring Lark will go in 2013.
At the end of last month I did the Country Living Fair in Harrogate. I have never done a large retail fair before and the thought of it was far more daunting than the reality! I met lots of new customers and had great feedback. The stall looked just as I had planned it and I am already tweaking it for next year!!!! I had lots of follow up orders from all over the country following the fair, so it was all very positive and worth all the late nights!
I plan to make new products in 2013, many of which will have come from feedback at the Country Living and other Fairs I have been to. I have had lots of requests for Owls and Campervan iPhone covers! Also many of my Camper van cushions and iPad/kindle cosys were bought by people as gifts for people who had either had one or would like one. I had a couple which were bought for people who had campervan’s as their wedding car!
Also the Bob Bob Bobbing Cushion, I had lots of lovely comments from people who remember singing the song as a child, and several bought as gifts for uncles/husbands and brothers called Bob!
I will try to come up with new designs in the New Year taking objects, songs or images that people can relate to – any ideas always welcome!!!
I am working towards the British Craft Trade Fair in April now which is my next adventure, I’ve not done a trade fair before so lots of planning necessary!
But for new, I’m off to spend Christmas with family and will be back sewing in the New Year!
Merry Christmas everyone!
