I recently had a stall at a local craft fair, a local primary school called Trannack. it was their first ever craft fair and it was very successful. I shared my stall with my sister Melody Ryder, a very talented textile designer. Between us we had a very colourful, varied stall consisting of my buttons, calendars and cards and her bunting and felt lamps.

This was the first craft fair I have actually done on my own, and I feel it went very well, and was an enjoyable experience. I would love to make our stall look even prettier next time with plenty more stock and a pretty tablecloth....but these are details and I can work on these.
My other sister Emslie Mills, is a freelance make up artist and beauty therapist and she holds a stall at craft fairs selling a local, organic skincare product.
My mum is a Childrens Knitwear designer and will also be involved in selling her wonderful knitted hats and bears at these events. She has been a successful knitwear designer for many years, and he gorgeous designs can be found in shops in London, Bath and Cornwall. you can now buy online @ Knicky Knitwear, or check out her Facebook page to see what she's up to!
