New Fish and other news

I've had a very hectic time!.. Three fairs/exhibitions in 3 weeks! The YFM exhibition went very well and it was easy with all enthusiasm and support from all group members, I wrote about it in previous posts. Then on last Saturday I was on craft fair in local village (which was an utter failure) and this Saturday is a small craft fair in York's StJohn University. It's a bit too much for me but it's just happened this way!
I worked very hard, neglected the shop in York to keep everything going. It's not about sales I just wanted to have a decent display on my stalls and not let down organisers.
I could not deplete my ETSY shop entirely because apart all above I've applied to two large craft events and my ETSY shop was a reference site. I was rejected by one and ACCEPTED by another!
I'm thrilled and scared!
It's a new craft event called Craft in the Pen and it follows very well established art show Art in the Pen which run successfully for 10 years.
Because it's new the majority of applicants were accepted apparently. It's at the end of November (21&22 Nov 2015), very good time for Xmas sales. Anyway it's an entirely new experience for me! I'm heavily relying on my husband's help and will try to find help and advice from as many friends as possible.
I'll keep you posted.
Wish me luck!
I've missed posting this fish it seems, so a bit late:

Felted Fantasy Fish

Large Felted Fish


  1. Good luck, my fingers crossed.

  2. Sounds like you've been really busy. You'll have plenty of time to get lots of work together for the new show and hopefully it will be successful. Best of luck!

    The new fish is really cute :)

    1. Thank you Ruth! Yes fortunately there is time to get ready!
