Craft Fair at Eden Court

This weekend I spent three days exhibiting at a craft fair at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness. Eden Court is just along the road from my home and studio, so is the most convenient craft fair that I do.

I had products from across our range - small velcro-closing purses through to large wallhangings, Christmas decorations and scarves.

Visitors to the fair got a sneak preview of our new product - the "Hebridean Hood". Details will be available on the website in the new year. It received a lot of favourable comments and several people tried it on.

The red scarf you see in the foreground of this photograph was another hit. This is a new design in our range of flared-ends scarves - "Celtic Flame". I will need to make another similar scarf because I only made this last week and didn't have a chance to photograph it. I was particularly pleased with this one, so I do want to feature it on the website.

The large wallhangings received a lot of interest and the green/gold one you can see to the right of the mannequin sold half way through the fair.

As might be expected for an event billed as a Christmas Craft Fair, the Christmas decorations were popular with Tartan Hearts being bought to be sent as presents to destinations around the world and Shetland Angels flying out of the hall.

I have to spend the next few days making more hats and scarves to fill orders for shops and then it will be another round of packing up and setting up my stall at the next event - the Victorian Craft Fair at Brodie Castle.
