Craft Fair 2011

This year I am going to have a stall at the Shetland Arts & Crafts - Clickimin Craft Fair 11th - 13th November. I'm away on holiday in the few weeks leading up to the craft fair *(The Fest, Florida!)* so I need to be ready to exhibit when we return in November!

I'm busy thinking about my stand (see draft model above) and new prints. Will post more of the process of both over the next few weeks, very exciting and busy!
