Mega crop giveaway X Kirstie’s Handmade Fair

Mega crop giveaway X Kirstie’s Handmade Fair

 

It seems a very long time ago since I visited Ragley Hall’s Handmade fair, and won a bottle of Toffee vodka for being part of Sunday’s best dressed, met Patrick Grant in the VIP tent and gave off stalker vibes to Mr X Stitch.Β  Needless to say the Vodka is now history, but the memory lives on as does the memories of hanging out with some awesome people.

 

 

What also lives on is the Mega collection of merchandise I managed to swag to do you guys a bumper crop giveaway! admittedly it was designated for right after the event, but with one thing and another it has been an odd year and now is the only goodΒ opportunity I have had to share the wealth….. that or really I have been holding onto it all hoping it can all be mine!

 

I don’t want to over excite you all BUT LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY THINGS! I thought it would be appropriate to introduce each company who kindly provided some goodies so let’s start do this alphabetically so no one can acuse me of having favorites…..

Β 

I know right. YOU NEED IT ALL!!! That is exactly what the winner will get. Everything in the picture. So how do you enter this giveaway? Well as it’s such a biggy I thought I’d offer a few ways of being entered into the priza draw.

There are some extra ways of getting some entries into the hat buy doing the following. These are not mandatory, but will give you another entry into the giveaway.

Be sure to tag the company in the picture too so they know we love them. The more photo’s of unique companies the more entries!
  2.

  • Sneak peek of my @mccallpatternuk dress for the @eveappeal Sip and Sew initiative. I'm working with ALL THE tricky fabrics but bullied them into submission. Also thanks to the lovely Brenda of @vlieseline_uk I did away with stay stitching the neckline of my liquid satin (it usually distorts it) and used some of their staystitch interfacing! Worked an absolute treat... I'm 100% converted! Where can I get a whole roll guys? @vlieseline_uk 😍.

  • For those of you who missed the sarcastic undertones in my last last, I DID NOT make that beautiful seahorse. That was all @englishtailoress work. I did however learn to how to lace up the frame and the fundamentals of tambour beading ❀️ @englishtailoress has a 3 day course running in London to learn how to create the seahorse. Anyone want to put me up? πŸ˜‚.
.
Apart from my tambour beading investment I made two sensible purchases that I needed. Some exquisitely heavy corduroy from @hollandandsherryapparel of Seville row and some green jersey (rach got the blue version) for a seasonal cardigan from @doughtysonline .
Loved seeing so many people over the weekend. ❀️

Maybe my dream of a tambour beaded wedding dress are just dreams...

  • Doing the thing. Arriving super late today but I'm staying over tonight so I'll see you all Saturday! Anyone fancy meeting up for a hug before we all leave tomorrow? Thinking maybe at @thefoldline (stand F8) as it's near the entrance/exit. Nothing that gets in the way of workshops/shopping. Maybe around 4? Anyone up for it?

  • I've had a few handmade holidays, but this dress was definitely my favorite. 2 years ago when I went to Ny/Fl I needed a dress for the Halloween πŸ‘» horror nights that I wouldn't get told I could not wear.... (no costumes) but was costume enough to be Halloween. I decided to try a neon sugar skull reversible @byhandlondon Anna dress! It worked perfectly. I wore the blue side to sneak in and then did a switch-a-roo in the toilets before heading out into the fright fest. Got SO MANY compliments about that dress that the tactical lining was worth every hand stitch.
