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.
