While Hannah and Thomas were jet-setting off to a wedding, I swung out to The New Dowse for Craft 2.0 to meet some lovely crafters, sell some magazines and console those who had just heard the news that this beautiful new issue will be the final one. When I see Hannah and Thomas on Tuesday, I’ll be passing on all your lovely messages of thanks, congratulations and just how many people will be missing their quarterly hit of crafty goodness.
Craft 2.0 was a great hit – I met lots of beautiful people, some of whom had never been before! There were so many amazing stalls – I was almost glad I didn’t have my wallet with me – I think I would be broke or seriously in debt if I’d been seduced into buying everything that took my fancy.
There were moments of being absolutely swamped with enthusiastic makers, and those who stuck around too long had to check out my awesome hand modelling poses from my experiences with the photo shoot. (Check p. 27 for my ‘hand’iwork.) I hope you all had a great day out there, and thanks to everyone who stopped by.
In other news, after compiling the Magpie’s Nest for the latest issue, I’ve found that Giles Speeden, who creates the book carvings, has now got a blog site to show off his works – check it out here.
