I can't believe how quickly the time goes - I think it's a feature of growing older.
December disappeared as usual in a rush of orders for Christmas, not to mention our own family preparations; January is a month for reflection and planning, and February onwards has been busy producing stock for shows and shops, coming up with new designs and planning for an exhibition in the Autumn.
Some shows we will be at:
16th - 17th May: (Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Powys). Green Horizons - an event at the Smallholder Show showcasing sustainability. http://www.rwas.co.uk/en/garden-festival/
21st - 31st May: Look out for a collection of our clothing at 'The Great English Outdoors' in Hay during the Hay Festival. www.greatenglish.co.uk/
30th August: Ludlow Green Fair www.ludlow21.org.uk
14th - 15th November: Weald and Downland Museum Christmas Fair, Singleton, West Sussex www.wealddown.co.uk/
(1st weekend in December, tbc) Castle Green Christmas Fair, Hereford
The exhibition in October is 'The Real Colour Show' at the Minerva Arts Centre, Llanidloes, Powys. It is being masterminded by Jim and Di Gaffney of Textile Techniques and will be all about colour from natural dyes, including talks, demonstrations and workshops. www.textiletechniques.co.uk/shows.asp
