Well how the devil is everyone out there in blog reader land? Is the weather still good in your area? Or is there a distinct chill in the air? If the sun is still shining where you are make the most of it but maybe stock up on supplies for the coming season. What a great summer it has been even if it is coming to an end but hey more excuses to stay inside and craft.
I've spent the last few days adding lovely new things to the website so make sure you pop over and have a look, although not finished uploading yet so keep checking back. We've got new ribbon, glitter, adhesives, storage sheets and more!
Our next fair is on the 1st September in the Farnham Arms Hotel, Cavan Town and is a regular event that is especially favoured by some of our regular exhibitors and we always have a great day!
Have you started making your Christmas projects yet? I know the dreaded 'C' word but if you are making to sell then you probably have either started making or started shopping for supplies. Do check out what we have to offer at www.downland-crafts.com and if you are looking for something that you can't find it is always worth asking, we want to stock what you want to buy so talk to us.
The new forum has a few members now but we need more to make it a place worth visiting, you can access this from the menu bar on our website. It is free to register and unlike facebook etc. you don't need to display your real name, so can chat virtually anonymously if you wish. It is also dedicated to the Irish Craft Market which seemed to be hard to find online. We have set up sections for tips and techniques, events including a place to review fairs you have visited either as a customer or exhibitor, business information including registering for tax and public liability insurance and more. Why not take a look now, register and say hi.
Right then better sign off for now as the tea won't cook itself, oh what a glamorous life I lead. Until next time.....happy crafting x
