Christmas markets & fairs

Goodness where does the time go!  I can’t believe it’s 2013 already. Thank you to everyone who has supported The Forgotten Library in 2012.  I really do hope to be updating this blog regularly this year.  I have some wonderful treasures I have yet to unpack and document, I think it’s almost a year since I was lucky to be sold some original patterns, sketches and documents from a lace firm.  Having been tied in rolls for decades and covered in roof dust they need careful unrolling and flattening so I was always too busy to get to them.  They really are top of my list once I’ve made some space round here.  Last minute making for fairs over the Christmas period inbetween a busy day job means it looks like someone shook all the books off the library shelves and sprinkled them with clock movements, findings, paper tags and binding wires.  I can’t even see some of the equipment like the laminator and the drill any longer!

Here are some photos of a few of the craft fairs and markets I enjoyed standing a stall at this past Christmas period.
