These range from platters and dishes from 10cm square to 40cm square, coasters, wind chimes, soap dishes, spoon rests, brooches, trees and tea lights. I also make special occasions presents, for wedding anniversaries, birthdays, engagements, retirements and other milestones in life. I have a range of seasonal specialities for Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. If there is a particular cultural or religious festival where beautiful glassware is needed I can design and make something suitable, in consultation with my Client.

About my business and myself:
“My name is Kim. I have started making pop up cards since I was a little girl as a hobby. I started my business about 2 years ago. My handmade pop up cards are a great idea to surprise your family/ friends and put a smile on their faces. They are designed to go completely flat. We have different styles for many different occasions such as for birthdays, newborns, weddings, thank yous, get well, ect or when you just want to send a card. Our cards have never disappointed anyone. They are also such lovely gifts and keepsakes to bring back memories. We also offer a handwritten message on the card then send it straight to the recipient”
 
Also, I am selling face masks and face shields. I have given to NHS £2000 and donated some face shields. But each of us needs to protect ourselves and the community as well, if you know anyone is looking for face protection, please recommend me. Thank you very much.

Claire Hayes…

A little bit about me…“ My name is Claire, and ever since I can remember I loved making things! I am a mother of 3, my youngest has recently started school so I now feel able to delve into my passion for crafting full time. My favourite keepsake to make are box frames, these can be personalised if requested.

Curvy’s Creations…
 
“Hey, my name is Catherine. I am the crafter behind curvys creations. I got into resin a few weeks before lockdown started and there is no going back. I have learned a lot through resin and I started with the small items like keyrings and jewellery then moved on to coasters wall decor and signs.  Crafting with resin helps to keep my mind active. I suffer ptsd and making resin keeps my mind calm and keeps my side effects at a minimum. Can’t wait to see you all at the craft market.”

Carly’s Homefronts…
 
“I’m an embroiderer and I make key fobs, badges, framable pieces, and recently, masks. I’ve made over 3000 of them since the COVID-19 lockdown began and I’ve donated as many as possible to medical professionals and key workers.  I’d say my focus is anything fun! A little magic, a little silly, a lot sarcastic… I try not to take myself too seriously.”

Baarmy Crafts…

“I started making my handmade cards for family members two years ago and, after receiving such a great response, decided to try my hand at a couple of Christmas craft fairs…I now not only make cards for any occasion, but hand folded paper bunting, paper posies and hanging decorations. I love working with paper and pride myself on individuality and quality.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pictures and descriptions of all my products can be found on my website: https://www.baarmycrafts.com
 
Creations from my shed…
 
“Since studying silver-smithing (2000 – 2004), I have been quietly working on creations from my shed ever since, at weekends and in the evenings.  In the last year I have started to sell at craft fairs and it is great when someone wants to buy something you have created.  Sterling silver and beaded jewellery is my first love, but I have also dabbled in copper foil stained glass, mosaics and some leather work.  These need some fine tuning before being launched on my stall.    Here are some samples of what will be available.”

1000 bead necklace in turquoise glass miyuki seed beads, finished with a magnetic clasp – £25

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also available in silver tone miyuki seed beads – £25

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of my popular seed bead “squid” earrings with sterling silver ear wires – £15 a pair

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Air bead necklace – £20

Hundreds of glass seed beads threaded onto a fine filament and crocheted to form this light and incredibly strong necklace – perfect to dress up a tee shirt or more formally for an evening out.

Peter Herridge…
 
” I have a passion for wood, the colour, texture and the way nature and time creates it own images. My photography often reflects these images and when I work with a piece, I try and keep it is as natural as possible, using wax and oils to bring out the beauty of the wood. Much of the material used is reclaimed and upcycled, alongside driftwood found along my local seafront. I can be found on Facebook, Flickr, Etsy and craftfairuk.”

I have attached some pictures of the work I will be selling.
