Pimms and Knitting in the Secret Garden

Last Saturday we were down in the Secret Garden at their annual craft fair, we could tell you where it was but then we'd have to kill you...Not really it was on Edwards lane at the United Reformed church and it was lovely.

This was our little stall, tucked in the corner of the tea rooms, so we had unadulterated access to the delicious cream teas and biscuits. Just behind us is the piano on which Eleanor gave an impromptu concert after one pimms too many! 

We took a small selection of our yarns but focussed mainly on the artisan products including a lovely debut of our newest artisan's brooches and pin cushions - the prices of which have now been updated on this blog post.

The day kicked off with a lively parade - wearing sparkly clothes and making a bloody racket but they all looked to be enjoying themselves.

Right next door to us was a lovely lady called Karen selling knitted and crocheted items, by which Eleanor was a little smitten. We'll talk more about her later as Eleanor took tons of photos to share with you.

This was one of Liese's favourite stalls, where Eleanor brought a lovely purple flowering plant for her mum, and as it turns out the lady running it is one of our good customers - Jane.

Emma Williams stall was Liese's other favourite, a treasure trove of wonderful blue toned ceramics, stunning!

Eleanor kidnapped the camera and went for a walkabout, where she spotted this stall which appealed to her macabre side but she has forgotten the name of the lady running the stall, so if it's you or you know her please get in contact.
