Cardiff City Craft & Hobby Show

Thought I'd share with you a few photos of the Cardiff City Craft and Hobby show we attended last weekend.  It was a two day event and the first "show" of its kind that Cardiff City Stadium had hosted.  It was geared a lot towards card and jewellery making but we were invited to be the "fabric" presence on the day.....and a presence we were!!

Hours were spent folding, sorting, packing and ordering extra stock.  Many a late night was had making sure everything was organised as there is nothing worse than being unorganised at a craft show!

As it was the first big show we'd attended, we had no clue as to how it was going to go, but thankfully, for us at least, it was a huge success!

Lots of people passed through the doors, people not only looking for beautifully handcrafted items and gifts, but also who were looking for inspiration themselves.  Lots of people spent money on fabulous supplies (not only from us but other stalls too!) and a good time was had by all! 

We are looking forward to the next show which they are hoping to host around October/November time.  Im already looking at Christmas fabrics and supplies!  (am I mad, is it too soon?!).  I'll leave you with a few photos of my stall from the day....

Lots and lots (and lots and lots) of fabrics!

So many people loved our fabrics...and bought a lot too!  We are currently in the middle of re-stocking as we sold out of quite a few lines.  As always, the Summer Garden range was a huge favourite, as it is online!  Closely followed by the Vintage Teapots.  We will also have a few new fabrics and haberdashery items coming soon, so keep an eye closely on the shop!
