Now that the November month is here and before you know it, it will be December, which means is practically Christmas, we need to think about some goodies to make. Last years snoods and wrist warmers are always winners, plus some fascinators will always go down for those who want to wear more statement pieces.. Maybe some capacitor earrings too.
These will all be found at various places around Sussex, including this little lovely pop-up shop by Me Sew in Lewes.
Now that all the festivals and late summer fayres are all over and done with, we can have a well deserved break and just relax for a bit. Not for long though as before you know it November will be here, and we have to start thinking about Christmas.. Even though we don’t really want to….
Second year running the Lantern Fayre will once again be held on the Level. It’s a free two day community arts festival transforming the Level into a unique environment for performers, traders and artists from across the City of Brighton and Hove to showcase their crafts and talent. We will be there too! Last year looked great with all the lights in the trees along the cycle path.Come and check it out!
After severe rainfall earlier on in the summer, the Playgroup Festival got postponed. So now officially the last (working) festival of the summer for us. Last years we had success with our animal ears on alice bands. This year the theme is “Lost Toys”. Well, I must say this summer has been so packed with festivals so I haven’t had time to do my homework. No particular costumes made especially for the occasion, but hey,we have lots of stock still and we are in it for the fun! So ready or not, here we come!
I had such a good time at Over The Moon Festival (previously Out Of The Ordinary) last year. Magpie is running the recycling again, so its a small crew of us going. No stall this time though as I want more time to have fun. How exciting!
How much work will be done at this one is questionable. The weather is going to be good and Stevie Wonder is playing! Bring it on I say!
My lovely friend Sue from Me Sew has now taken over the upstairs at IEKO in Lewes and will be running all sorts of sewing and craft workshops from this space. There will also be a Pop-Up Shop happening as part of the opening on from the 6th until the 8th of September featuring lots of local makers. If you are Lewes based, come and check it out!
I very rarely make things for myself. Always full with deadlines for others. As I had my friends wedding approaching, I was determined to make a dress to wear.The fabric that I found was just saying Vivienne Westwood to me. Considering I only started the day before the wedding and was still sewing it when my lift turned up outside my house, I think it turned out pretty alright.
Another sunny weekend ahead, and we are ready packed for the annual Brunswick Festival. Live music, dance, street theatre, circus skills, healing area, arts crafts and bric-a-brac stalls, world food and beer tent… fun and entertainment for all the family!!!
See you down there!
I have been looking forward to this one. Heard lots of good reviews about last year, which was the first of this festival. Set next to a lake, and the weather forecast is looking glorious!
I better pack my bikini!
