behind the scenes Contemporary Craft Festival Fabric New new collection Textiles

Hello!

Well it's been more than a little while since I last managed to post here, but time has been flying by, with so many exciting projects in progress, nearing completion and in the pipeline, that there has been little time to dwell and reflect! We're gearing up for a launch of our brand new collection at Home & Gift, Buyers Festival in Harrogate in a few weeks time, which we are unbelievably excited about - I think this collection is my favourite so far, full of bright popping colour and new prints!

We had a soft launch for the range at our favourite retail show of the year - the Contemporary Craft Festival in our hometown of Bovey Tracey, and oh my, what a weekend! Despite some iffy weather, the sun broke through eventually and a marvellous time was had by all! If you've never been to the festival before, it comes highly recommended from everyone who visits - hundreds of stands showcasing BEAUTIFUL contemporary crafts of the highest quality, demonstrations, workshops to learn super cool new skills, plus amazing food and entertainment - it is sooo worth a visit, either for the day or the whole weekend (if your bank balance is looking healthy - I can promise you WILL part with your hard earned money!).

We were also featured in this lovely blog post from madebyhandonline which is full of glorious pieces of work from very clever people indeed - definitely worth a read!!

Here's a few snap shots from the weekend, and of our new collection, which is entitled 'Cadiz'...

I was so nervous to show this collection to anyone - it really is a strange thing to design fabric and product in your own little bubble, and to be really pleased with the results, but then to not know if anyone will actually like it or buy it! Thankfully I need not have worried, the reaction to the new range was more positive than I could have ever imagined with lots of pieces selling out so now I'm super excited to launch it properly next month! Eek!
For now, I must get back to my prep for Harrogate but I promise I'll be back a little sooner next time, hopefully with lots of beautifully styled professional photos of the new range from the all round superstar photographer, Holly Booth!
