A Great Northern Success
Last weekend's fair at the lovely Spinningfields in Manchester was a great success. Along with large numbers of the public who came to visit the fair it was great to see a few old friends who popped in the say hello and see what the press has been up to recently. The photographs above are deceptive, seemingly showing the only quiet moment of the four days we were there.
Along with meeting new friends through the public during the fair I spent quite a bit of time wandering around the other stalls and meeting the stall holders. Favourites included Samantha Bryan's wonderfully illustrative fairies, Catherine Hammerton's exquisite wallpapers and Helaina Sharpley's illustrative wirework. Still exhausted after preparing and participating in the fair I am now working hard to fill orders made and commissions given, and replace stock in time for upcoming Christmas fairs - all nice jobs of course though!
