Handmade Fair exhibitors I can’t wait to meet…


It’s exactly 39 days till the Handmade Fair starts, and although I have an absolute ton of things that I should be doing (new product lines, hello?!) I thought I would share some of the other sellers I am particularly excited to meet!

Tilly and the Buttons

I’ve loved following the Instagram of Tilly and the Buttons, finding inspiration for new sewing projects and gaining the confidence needed to really delve into dressmaking. I can’t wait to drop by their stand to pick up a few new dress patterns and get sewing a new wardrobe for the Autumn!

Nikki McWilliams

A creative force to be reckoned with, I have loved Nikki’s work since the day I first laid eyes on her digestive biscuit cushion! Playful, tactile and full of joy, Nikki’s hard work and dedication to the love of the British tea break has earnt her a long list of top notch credentials, including recently winning the Established Business award at the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards. I highly recommend everyone to drop by Nikki’s stand for biscuit related goodness.

Punto Belle

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Lois of Punto Belle at a few craft fairs up and down the country, and now we get to do it all over again! Lois is one talented lady, not just for her insane bag making skills but also for all those bespoke prints she creates for her accessories! You literally will not see her designs anywhere else and her stall is not one to be missed.

Izzi Rainey

As soon as I started browsing through the shopping section of the Handmade Fair site and spotted Izzi’s work I fell in love! Based on a farm in the heart of Norfolk, I love the use of colour and shape in Izzi’s products.

Myself, you’ll be able to find my stall in the West tent, W36 and if you still haven’t grabbed yourself a ticket there’s still time to take a chance and win a pair of tickets for yourself and your buddy! Take a look at my giveaway post to see how you can be in with a chance of winning a pair!

Enjoy the rest of this gloriously sunny august Sunday!
