Happy New Year, we trust you had an excellent rest over the festive period? So, January, not much fun, or glamour to it is there? Well for a bit of brightening up, we thought that throughout January we shall be posting our top picks and previews for the Feb event in Leeds on Feb 2nd.
To get us started we thought we might give your appetite for sexy craft a little tease with a look at some returning makers who have taken part before in the last 3 years who will be with us in Feb....these folk represent the very best in handmade and they epitomise what reetsweet is all about!
Bec Gilray from 'Doyoupunctuate?'
Letterpress obsessive, this lovely lady makes all manner of printed goods, cards, stationery, gift wrap, all with a unique and refeshing tone, we love her.
Sarah Fordham aka 'Magasin'
Mental crosstitcher the likes of which can either delight or confuse, (we frickin' love her humour!) she handstitches badges, earrings, cufflinks and even makes crosstitch boobies! One to watch! We love her giant crosstich brooches the best.
Has blossomed from being a part time jewellery designer in to a top class independent full time maker, an incredibly popular blogger and stationer.. there doesn't seem to be much she can't do and every event she has new ideas and seasonal items!
