Cornwall Day



On a very gloomy morning, we crossed the Tamar Bridge, yesterday,

 on our way to the Eliot House Hotel, Liskeard.




Some time ago, I was invited by a very nice lady called Ellie,

 to take my vintage fabrics to something called, 'Cornwall Day'.

This is a grand get together of West Country Embroiderers

but I soon found out that not only were there embroiderers

present but many patchworkers as well!




Ellie had chosen a variety of stallholders for this event and so

as well as my vintage fabrics, there were beads, threads, ribbons,

sewing accessories, modern fabrics, wool etc etc.

I was glad to be able to sell the 'vintage flavour' to the

very large crowd of keen crafters!




At this event, there was a guest speaker from Norfolk :

 very talented patchworker, Yvonne Brown.

She talked about her life and her work and her, 'show and tell'

was fascinating.







I sold plenty of fabric, had a lovely day and so,

all in all, it was well worth the trip 'over the border'!!





On Saturday, I will be at The Vintage Bazaar's Giant Rag Market

 at the Cheese and Grain,  Frome.

This promises to be a fabulous event as are all of Lizzie and Clare's

well organised 'dos'!

Hope to see you there!

;-)
