The Contemporary Textiles Fair was brilliant! As a newcomer i didn't know what to expect but what i found was an amazing amount of different ideas coming from all the stalls. It was brilliant to see so much diversity. I had allot of positive feedback....... even managed to sell a few pieces which boosted my confidence in my designs soooooo much. And as requested I'm going to post my designs on my blog so those who can't attend my shows can at least see what I'm all about.
Sorry about the quality of the photograph, I'd forgotten my camera and had to rely on my VERY old phone

Aiguille En Fete is the only sale-exhibition-show exclusively dedicated to textile DIY in France. Internationally renowned, high quality artists and events. A unique opportunity to communicate for brands in the textile hobby world. Created 8 years ago it now gathers 230 exhibitors and welcomes 30 000 visitors.
This year they are curating a show of recent graduate work from the UK. I was lucky enough to be one of the graduates selected and will be sending a selection of my work to be included in this amazing show. If you happen to be passing, pop in and show your support!

The Blackpool Art Fair is Grundy's biannual event that shines a spotlight onto some of the creative activity taking place across the Fylde coast, and a little further afield. They are attempting to create a small, vibrant community of creative in the gallery space; a place to cherish what might otherwise go unnoticed or undervalued.
As part of the fair, Grundy has invited Fylde residents and artists to exhibit one piece of their work in the gallery. I am honoured to be displaying one of my pieces in my home town as part of this wonderful fair. Blackpool has made me the artist i am today and The Grundy was the very first gallery i ever visited making this exhibition very special to me.
All the work displayed at the fair is for sale so if your looking for a one off piece you can take your pick of nearly 200 artists work.
Also happening on Saturday 19 November will be the Super Duper Fair, this year being held at Blackpool Winter Gardens and the switch on of Blackpool's christmas lights
