Morning all! As some of you may know, I'm taking part in Creative Connections CRAFTfest for the second time.
It's an online craft fair over 48 hours in November; in September there were over 140 stalls = hundreds of handmade and unique goodies!
This time each stallholder has been allocated a team leader to help them co-ordinate their advertising, for support and just a general chit chat! Really chuffed to have been asked to head up a group and of course I went with the pink group!
So here are some of the brilliant stallholders included in ym group...enjoy!
A scouser who loves to sew! My aim is to sew and craft items from recycled materials. I try to create things from remnants of material left over from other projects. I also love to scour charity shops and car boot sales in search of things I can upcycle! I hope by doing this that my fabric stash will deminish whilst creating unique one off items to sell.
My name is Emma (aka The Sparkly Fairy), maker of handcrafted cards and jewellery. I have been selling at local craft fairs for a couple of years now and to friends and family. I also have shops on MISI and Folksy. I have a blog which I regularly post to as well as Flickr, Twitter and Pinterest. I love the vintage style and as the name suggests often try to add a bit of sparkle to! I live and breath craft! and look forward to participating in November's Craftfest.

I am Linda and my shop is Uniquely Yours.
I make Unique Accessories for Unique People. Everything I make is from my own designs as I don`t follow patterns, mainly because they look so complicated.
I buy yarn and ideas for what to make just flood in. I don`t see why practical items can`t be pretty too.
I have been crocheting and knitting since a child and love seeing my ideas transferred into something wearable. I get great satisfaction from seeing an idea from my head, grow in my hands.
