Handmade Fair 2015

I managed to get some early bird tickets to the Handmade Fair for the second year.  Last year’s Fair inspired me to do more crafting and not to be afraid to try new things. It does help that my friend Miranda has been with me for both years too.

There were a heap of people who’ve benefited from things that I’ve made since last year or gift wrapped or received cards.  So I was hoping that this year’s Fair would introduce me to some more crafts and reinspire me further.

I do hope that next year they run some more intermediate/advance workshops or perhaps extend the time (currently 45mins) so that people can get their teeth into some crafting and come away with something finished.
