I'm so excited!!!

Hi all

It only seems a few days since I last posted, but it's two months! Wow, where's the time gone!

Well, I was accepted to exhibit at the Contemporary Craft Fair at Bovey Tracey in Devon. This prestigious fair is by selection only so I'm pretty lucky to get in and will be exhibiting with some wonderful designer makers including Isabella Whitworth, Gracie Burnett amongst others. It takes place from Friday 6 June to Sunday 8 June from 10am to 5pm and I will be launching my new range of British wool scarves as well as exhibiting my wall panels.

More great news for me is that I've been selected to exhibit at 100% Design in London! I'm going with Design Factory (the organisation that represents and helps designer makers in the East Midlands), but it was the eminent panel of 100% Design who selected 11 out of the 20 makers who were sent for selection. I can't tell you how pleased I am!

One slight down side is I have to make my pieces to a colour swatch (see it on the right!). It's certainly not my "cup of tea", but will do me good to design something to such a limiting palette!

Wish me luck!

What a fantastic achievement Alison. Amazing how little by little the pieces will fall into place.
Bovey Tracey is quite a way from us but maybe I wll venture over there and have a look. Well done. Keep weaving, dying and spinning.....

Thanks so much for your encouragement. It's seems such a huge break though for me.

Congratulations! I'm sure you'll step up to the challenge of those colors and really do something very creative with them.
