First Craft Fayre

On Thursday I did my very first craft fayre at Dobbies in Stirling.
I fretted for weeks prior to it. First of all I didnt have transport through as hubby has the car for his work in the evening. When he did agree to give me the car and take the train to work I worried about it being dark and driving on the motorway. But thankfully my cousin came to my rescue and offered to drive me through.
I think she had a whale of a time at the craft fayre as she tried her hand at spinning wool on a spinning wheel and she also did a wee bit of basket weaving. She bought a knitted chicken as a present for her mum (my aunty). It was very cute with its little skirt on! My sister came with us also to the fayre. We had a good old chin wag, we laughed and we had a few sad memories about our dads who are no longer with us. We finished the evening off with a bottle of wine.
My other worry about the fayre was that I didnt have enough jewellery to take with me so I was amazed when I managed to cover the whole table with what I had made. I was keen to promote my wire wrapped jewellery so I made 5 new pieces.

It was a very positive experience. The staff at the garden centre were very complimentary about my work and the other crafter's were very friendly. So I hope that this will not be my last fayre.
