Shotley Craft Show at Wolverstone Hall

Well craft show was well attended - lots people looking stroking and buying .................... there was such an amazing choice - froom woodturning (bowls, pens, vases, mushrooms etc); jewelery (semi-precious, silver, beaded); pottery (lovely ironstone and thrown pots, jugs, mugs, bowls); quilts; wool spinning; lacemaking; fabric bowls, bags, cushions, advent calendars; crochet and knitting (blankets, scarves, shawls,  jackets, hats, bags); stained glass panels; basket weaving; fabric and embroidery artwork, dolls ...and so the list goes on ................. all made by wonderfully talented people!!
Additional bonus being they are all really nice people - which makes it an even better experience to not only buy from them and but exhibit with such lovely people aswell!
There was an exhibition hall and sales room in the Oranagerie with a  dedicated refreshment room (lots lovely cakes n goodies to eat while you decided what to buy!)

The Orangerie - the Sales room - every table was groaning with all sorts sumptuous goodies

Another view of the room in a brief lull - we bought that blue pot

The Exhibition Room - even more stunning things ........... I wanted to buy one of the wall hangings

Exhibition Room - more goodies on display .............

Lace making demonstration - with young and old equally fascinated!!

The Saturday started with rain but soon cleared up to a stunning sunny Autumn day - same again Sunday with many families coming to look and buy - lots taking a break eating cake and having a coffee while they tried to make that difficult decision as to what to buy!

Was such a fun day -lovely items and equally nice people to talk to
