Table Plan!

Taaa Daaaa!!

Here is the table plan for April the 25th! Ive managed to fit everyone in and there should be some space for people to group and chat.

Rather annoyingly it is the wrong way round here...and very small...but if i haven't already emailed you a copy of it just let me know and i will send it straight away(it will be bigger that way as well....i think!)

Its not long now...just over a month. hope the preparations are going well for you all. i have suggested meeting up on the 30th of march in case anyone wanted to see the room and me....and everyone else doing the fair. I'm not sure why but i thought it might help if we knew what each other looked like???

anyway let me know!!

Take Care and Happy Stitching!

Tables and New Pictures

I'm back with the table sizes...the larger ones (of which there are 4) are 49" by 30", the smaller ones (of which there are 4) are 30" by 30". the only fair way i can think of when it comes to allocating these is on a first come first served get in touch quick!!!!
Also... i have some new pictures from another confirmed stall.
The lady is called Liz and she makes lovely beaded jewellery and also cards and gift boxes, they all look great (might have to hold on tight to my purse strings on the day!!)

Well my loves, that's all for now, i will be back soon with a floor plan.ohhhh how exciting!!
P.S. i thought i might as well add this onto here...this is what i have emailed the local univeristy about the craft fair, they said they would put it up on the website. its quite useful if you were wondering what the fair is all about...

200 words for Lovely Little Cheltenham Craft Fair.
Thanks to the increasing popularity of craft blogging and the creation of websites such as Etsy and Folksy crafting has stopped being something you hide from others. Conversations like “Ohh you craft…that’s quaint…well good luck with that” spring to mind. Now you are more likely to hear “You made these things?…And you sell on Folksy?….That really cool!“ Crafting is becoming something which you can show off…..and maybe even brag about a little.
This is the ethos which I have tried to put into the Lovely Little Cheltenham Craft Fair at the Strand (Cheltenham, High Street) on the 25th of April. Its not a fair where you have to pay fifty plus for a stall nor is it a fair where people will turn their noses up at the items you make. Instead it will be a craft fair where people who have a passion for creating can meet and chat. A fair where people are welcome to browse the stalls of talented craftsters. A fair where the stall holders don’t have to worry about how much they sell but instead enjoy the atmosphere and company.
So if you are interested in more information email, or just pop along on the day doors open at 12pm!! Everyone is welcome.

The Plans are Ticking Along Fine.

Hello again.
thought i would pop by with a progress report. Ive spent the last week emailing people about the craft fair and making enquires about advertising as a result the local university have confirmed that they will run an article on the craft fair on their website...which is very generous of them. I'm waiting to hear back from a few other places. Ive also emailed the people in charge of the great British craft tour and asked if they are interested in coming over...i think they are local fingers crossed.any other suggestions will be greatly received!!
People have steadily been confirming their interest in the fair and i am pleased to introduce you all to Cara Joines. This lovely lady sells girls dress,lavender bags and wire fairies. here are some pictures of her cute makes....

The dresses look lovely...i cant wait to see them out on the table.

Speaking of Tables i will be posting the sizes of the tables up early next week so watch this space. i will email the sizes of the tables to anyone who has expressed interest.

Well that's all for now my lovelies...more next week

Stay Safe


Monday, 2 March 2009 promised.

Afternoon my lovelies, i went to the Strand today and took some pictures of the room where the fair will be held. i apologise for all of the tables and chairs in there, but they had had a function in there the night before and hadn't had a chance to clear up. Hopefully these will give you a bit of an idea of the space.

Another thing i wanted to mention was the tables. There are a variety of sizes available which are provided by the strand. Ive been thinking and I've decided that the best way of doing it is to get back to you with a list of the sizes of tables and letting you decide which on you would rather?. that way if there is anyone who is doing a sale for the first time and is worried about how much or little stock they have they can choose the size to fit them. Make sense?

In terms of the fair itself, everything is coming along fine three stalls have been confirmed, which is good. fingers crossed I'll have some pictures of the stall holders wares soon. i also had the idea of setting up a free children's stall with some paints and paper etc so that any mums that come and browse easily.what do you think??

Right, well that's it for now dears.

Be Back Soon
