Craft Show catch up

Just a quick catch up.  A few of us from The Coven went to the Shepton Mallet craft show on Friday (much better than a day at the office).

The last few shows I have been to have been a bit of a let down and I have come away with very little.  This show is a nice size though it did seem like there were quite a few of non stitch/craft stalls.  I don't know if this is because of the cost of stalls or some other reason but I did struggle to find many of the items on my list!  For example, there was lots of cross stitch but no tapestry.

Luckily Siesta were there so I was able to get my tapestry frame, leather needles and quilting ruler (I find their stall has lots of goodies and their team are really knowledgeable about the products too).

I also bought a text embossing folder, some cork camera embellishments (I intend to paint these) and a large roll of washi tape.  There was also a fabulous company that sold food grade silicon moulds.  I have been trying to find a decent wine bottle stamp for some years (still no luck) so when I saw these little wine bottle moulds (there is even a mateus rose bottle complete with the raffia bottle!!  Oh that takes me back) I couldn't resist.

The only other thing I bought was some fat quarters.  I did promise myself I wouldn't buy any fabric but these were lovely so I relented!

So not too big a haul, no papercrafting bargains but still a lovely day out.

Happy crafting


  1. sounds a much nicer day than a day in the office!!

  2. Way more preferable than my Friday! I like the little mould, expect you'll get a lot of use from that. I haven't done tapestry for years...hmm. You make me think......

  3. Just started my first ever one shop bargain...£2.50 for the kit!

  4. Haven't been on a stash shop in sooooo long. Liking the look of that ruler :)
