Monday sees Roger from Far Horizons back in The Venue for our Monday free skills demo day. Roger is our resident photographer and he will be there between 10am and 4pm demonstrating how he makes the mounts for his beautiful photographs ready to frame them. So do call in if you are in the area and see how it's done - or even just to say hello and have a look at his wonderful photographs.
Thursday is our regular Thursday free skills demo day and Sheila from Sewing MANIA will be in residence between 10am and 4pm demonstrating patchwork skills. She has asked me to tell you all that this week she will be showing you how to put together Delectable Mountains. Sounds intriguing doesn't it?
Call in to find out exactly what this is - she will also be able to answer any questions you might have about patchwork and quilting and is extremely knowledgeable.
Friday sees another of our Mums-to -be, Mums, babies and pre-school children market days. We will be there between 9.30am and 4.00pm with a selection of unique handcrafted gifts and cards. This includes our unique baby gift packages, which are a collaberation between different Lev3l 3 crafters.
We have a beautifully handknit pram blanket which has been teamed with a handmade and fully CE certified matching sock monkey. To complete the package we have added a colour co-ordinated pram shaped handmade card - available as a new baby or a baby shower card. You can, of course, buy any of the items individually, but by teaming them up together we have ensured that you will pay a little less than the individual prices.
Also available are our baby buckets. These are handmade, padded buckets which we have filled with other handmade items eg one of them contains a handknit matinee set and a handmade bib and burp set.
A handmade sock monkey and a matinee set completes another baby bucket.
We have chosen all items with care and have ensured that they all colour co-ordinate - but should you wish to change one item for another - or just for another colour - then that can be arranged for you too - and you will still save money by buying them as a set.
Other items available in our baby range include moonstone bracelets and necklaces (for the new mum or mum to be), guardian angel keyrings, feeding bracelets, baby soother keyrings, hooded bath towels, wash mitts, new baby/christening framed button pictures, new baby/christening hearts, baby pocketed bags-to-go, new baby/christening/baby shower invitations and cards and much more. Come along on Friday and see what we have. But should you wish for a package to be made specifically to your own requirements then I am sure we can arrange that for you too.
Saturday is our normal weekly market day and we are in The Venue between 9.30am and 5.00pm. Here is a sneak peak at what you might find there this week
Feedback from last week.
Monday was our Monthly Monday Market Day and another good day was had by all! In the morning one very happy customer collect her heart shaped name banner made specially for her by Looby-Loo and I am sure you will agree that it is lovely.
On Thursday Sheila from Sewing MANIA was demonstrating her patchwork skills and had a steady stream of callers in to see her thoughout the day.
Saturday was our weekly market day - and what a busy morning we had this week.
