Christmas is coming…

Wow, what a year… since my last post which was inexcusably long ago, As the Crow Flies has been very, very busy! New outlets at the Leeds Craft Centre and Design Gallery, 20/21 Gallery in Scunthorpe, Platform in Cleethorpes and Found in Dunbar have kept me very busy with my order books, add to that the crescendo of Christmas market madness over the past month and computer-related work outwith the studio has been at a bare minimum.

I’m looking forward to two final markets in ATCF’s Bristol hometown – first up is this Saturday, 12th December, 10am-5pm, for Christmas at the Orangery. Pleased to see this shot of my doilyware being used as a promotional piece:

A really lovely selection of fine local makers at one of Bristol’s best known Christmas fairs – Christmas at the Orangery is taking place in Henleaze at the Bradbury Hall. Very excited to be taking part for the first time, and to see the Doilyware range featuring in a lot of local publicity:

Hope to see lots of local Bristolites there! Or if you can’t make that one then our final date will be Whiteladies Road Farmers’ Market on Saturday December 19th from 9-2pm. Have a wonderful festive season!

Stroud Goodwill

This winter in Stroud has been a lovely one – ATCF has been gracing the main square at the Farmers’ Market over a few dates in the lead up to Christmas, culminating in last weekend at the Goodwill Evening on Friday 4th and the Produce Market on Sat 5th. Thanks to the market team and all my lovely customers in Stroud – it’s been well worth the effort of foraying out from Bristol.

Had an entertaining moment at the Goodwill Evening when a photographer from Stroud News and Journal stopped by to comment on how unusual the wares were and feature me in his pictorial of the evening. Thanks to photographer Simon Pizzey who took the time to stop for this shot:
