reetsweet sheffield: march 10th previews
on wednesday me and the bessie went over to sheffield for a spot more of promoting the next event (march 10th - sheffield millennium gallery people!). we were utterly blown away by some of the hang out spots and shops we found, so much going on - a plethora of independents which is awesome to see. anyway, i'll be blogging about it as soon as the bessie gives me the photos back - and we'll give you a rundown of all the best spots to see when you are in town for our next fair!
I am delighted to present to you many new makers for the sheffield fair, including 'Darn it collective' (cool name yes?)....
'Needles and Pins at the ready DARN IT! are here to get your creative blood pumping, whether it's making baking or cheese caking we're taking craft to the next level. Hop on board...
Jen Hedley and Jilly Hargreaves formed Darn it! Collective in Newcastle in 2006 after coming together over a love of vintage fabrics, gem sweaters and mashed potato. Their craft is based around fun illustrations and textile design made to make people smile.
Jen studied Fine Art at Leeds and Barcelona and currently spends her days drawing, printing and sewing.
Jilly studied journalism at university and discovered her love of craft later in life designing clothes and homewares and coming up with mad ideas. The pair currently beaver away their hours at their sewing machines, running workshops and set designing for events and festivals...'
More to follow previewing this event - it's getting exciting!
