Say Hello to Us at the Handmade Fair!




We're going to be at The Handmade Fair... come say hi!

The Handmade Fair is a three day celebration of craft and creativity, hosted by TV's Kirstie Allsopp and set in the lovely grounds of Hampton Court Palace. It started last year and I know I'm not the only one who was mightily impressed with the upbeat, colourful atmosphere, wealth of inspirational talks and workshops on the programme, lovely people and amaaaazing crafty shopping. Ooh and let's not forget the prosecco van!



Last year I was teaching workshops pretty much non-stop for three days in the Janome sewing tent (and pretty star struck to see my mug on the flyer alongside Kirstie, Cath Kidston and Annie Sloan, omg). This year I'm so excited that we've booked our very own stand in the Shopping Village. The Shopping Village! We get to play shops! You can come and say hi to us, chat sewing and of course buy our gorgeous sewing patterns and book. We'll be at stand E4 in the East Tent - THE place to be.

It runs from 18th - 20th September 2015 at Hampton Court Palace. You can get your ticket here, and if you use the code ‘EXM27’ at checkout I believe you get £2 off. The ticket price includes access to a certain number of talks and workshops - check the website for the full deets.

It'd be so nice to meet you!

  1. Ooh I'm tempted to attend as I've never "been to the palace" before! Does anyone know how much access my ticket will give me to the grounds/palace/gardens? Wish on you lots of luck at the fair!

    1. I *think* the ticket is for the event only. It's at the back of the palace so you get to walk through the lovely grounds and see the outside of the buildings, if that's any consolation :)

  2. That sounds like a lovely event. Outdoor, and on the ground of the palace!

  5. Just booked my ticket, so see you there! It was great fun last year!
    I tried to reply to 'teatimer', but it wouldn't let me! Sadly, the only access will be to the bit of the grounds where the fair is held, but you do get a glimpse of the palace!
