They have invited me to have a craft stall again. I will have a selection of enamelled copper jewellery, accessories and gift items as well as a few items from Palletwood Stuff and Eve Marshall Artisan Felter.
The first Stamford Diversity Festival was held in my lovely little town on 30th August.
Recreation Ground, Stamford: 30th August 2021
The Festival was a celebration of World Music, Arts & Crafts, Food & Drink.
A Free, open-access, family festival organised by Stamford Anti-Racism Group, with funding from local council and support from the Town Council, various local councillors, businesses and volunteers. A truly joyous day!
Eve Marshall and I had a shared stall and we also took a selection of work by Mr A (Palletwood Stuff). Our stall was very well received and we had an amazing day of selling and making new friends. Already eagerly looking forward to the 2nd Stamford Diversity Festival. Very hopeful there will be more!
Event Coordinator Yvette DM has been working tirelessly since 2020 to make this festival a reality. It is her hard work, forward thinking and resilience that was the driving force for all the volunteers who worked with her.
Yvette invited me to be stall coordinator for the festival and together we worked on the layout of stalls & activities, who to invite to be stall holders and some social media posts.
Really proud to call this amazing woman my friend 🙂
Date for the Business Summer Fair: Friday August 20th
Venue: The Falcon Hotel Uppingham, The Market Place, Uppingham, Rutland LE15 9PY. In the Garden Terrace.
10am-1pm, Free entry
I have been invited to this little business fair organised in support of 6 local small businesses by Vikki who organises local entertainment and events and is helping her friend Louise launch her new business.
I am making brooches because don’t have many in my online shop. Only one at the time of writing this post! Such a popular piece of jewellery, I really don’t know why I have not made more of this lovely accessory in the past.
Well that is definitely changing this week. Work is in progress to get an enamelled range crafted this week. Peterborough Artists Open Studios starts at the week-end and I think that will be a good place to introduce my brooches to the world. And next week I will get them added to the online shop too.
