Anne-Marie Shropshire, The Shrop’ Shop…

“My Mum taught me to sew when I was about 10 – and I’m still sewing! I have tried most forms including dress making, embroidery, cross stitch, tapestry, applique and ran a costume business for several years.  Married to a farmer and with a day job, needlework, in its many forms, is one way I relax.  This is my first time as an exhibitor at a craft fair and I’m looking forward to sharing my love of fabrics by bringing bunting, bags and a whole host of cushions – all shapes and sizes – from glow-in-the-dark unicorns to beautiful animal prints, patchwork diggers to union jacks! Piped, pom-pom trimmed and plain.  I really think a new cushion is an easy way to brighten up a piece of furniture or a whole room.  From £15 each, do come and have a look!”

Blooms in Felt…

“I’m Daisy and I am a Primary School teacher in Suffolk. I have always had a passion for arts and crafts, and studied textiles at A level, and it’s an area I’ve been wanting to get back into for a while. I started to make felt flower vases and wreathes as gifts for family and friends, and after some kind words of encouragement (and a giant leap of faith), I have recently developed this hobby into ‘Blooms of Felt’: a small business which I run in my spare time. Making felt flowers and experimenting with designs and different colour ways is a real passion, and I love to come up with new ideas and watch them take place as the wreath builds up. I have a variety of colours and styles to sell, and I am more than happy to take custom orders to suit a customers particular colour palette. I’m really excited to be selling at my first craft fair in Sudbury, and I hope that people enjoy seeing my designs and sharing in my love of felt flowers. I don’t currently have a website, but I do have an Instagram page ‘bloomsoffelt’ for people to follow my latest designs or DM any product requests. Or I am also contactable by email on bloomsoffelt@hotmail.com. “

“My hobby is in the making of small trinkets in Stained Glass, having taken extensive instructions in this field, 14 years ago. I use the Copper Foil System for these small items , which include birds, boats, tractors,lighthouses, stars, and in Christmas themes, angels, snowmen, Santa’s and Christmas trees. In attending Fairs at various times in the year, I donate all my takings to 2 local Charities and so leave room to make more. The items are priced around £3 to £5 with some mounted on wooden blocks, a little more expensive.”

Tim Whitelock…Canal Art

“Tim trained at the London College of Furniture in the 1970’s, as a Furniture Designer/Craftsmen specialising in contemporary design of the time. After a few years working as a Technician in the Building Department of Hackney College he went back to college and trained as a Design & Technology teacher. His first teaching post was in East Bergholt, Suffolk before moving to a school at Brentwood in Essex where he progressed to specialised in Graphics and second in charge of a Department.

Tim’s interest in canals and associated subjects started in the year men first walked on the moon and led him to joining the Inland Waterways Association. He took up Canal Art as a hobby, nearly thirty years ago and offers one-day and weekend courses at various locations as well as attending craft shows.  

Tim’s interest in photography goes back to the same time when he won a competition with a black and white photograph of a lock on the River Avon. He offers a variety of talks which link his interest in canals, railways, London, history, the countryside, etc. with his interest in photography.

WEBSITE

Tim is currently putting together a new website which is hoped to be up running in 2019. It will be called ‘flicknclick.co.uk’. The flick represents painting and the click is the camera shutter.”

Susie G Art…

“I live in Suffolk and love to travel. My work is greatly influenced by my love of everything Australian and I choose to work in colours of the Ocean, beach or bush. My use of dot art in almost everything I do, stems from an appreciation of aboriginal drawings. 
 
Some examples of my work. My prices start from £5.”
