the martinborough fair

It’s Martinborough Fair tomorrow which is always a biggy in Wairarapa’s calendar. I won’t be having my usual stall, instead my shop will be open on Saturday 12noon – 4pm and 10.30am-4pm on Sunday. Do drop by if you’re visiting the area. It would be lovely to see you.

Perhaps pick up a flyer from here and then head down to my friend Lorraine’s new premises that opened up today. She’s an amazing designer who creates under the name of  Hall and it’s so good to have her here in Carterton.

Another friend and a fellow Brit, Victoria Cassell’s,  has an exhibition of her paintings at Aratoi in Masterton. It runs until 13th February so you have a few more days to catch it. She has to be one of my top 10 favourite New Zealand based artists. Her work reminds me of home.

    Hi Alison
    I did enjoy visiting your shop and studio on Saturday afternoon. It was such a hot day but your space felt cool and peaceful. I was inspired to sort my own studio space out and get cracking on a couple of quilt projects I have on the go.

  2. Hi Jen,
    Glad that you were able to drop by the shop/studio. Also glad that you felt inspired. 🙂
