Handmade at Home

The end of November is looming and that means it is time once again for Handmade at Home

For the past couple of years I have filled my home with handmade goodies from talented crafts folk from Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and invited folk around to come and have a look and purchase at will!

Last month was the first event for this year and we are doing it all again this coming weekend.

This is a wine rack made with recycled wood by Roch Furniture  I have mentioned some of their work before here and now, in addition to the painted furniture they are making their own pieces - tables, benches and these lovely shelves.
The hallway was sparkling with a table laden with beautiful jewellery from Sheena's Beads.

Karin from Kus Design takes lovely pieces of vintage china and displays them with floral arrangements and packed into boxes.

Set along the mantlepiece are four of Sharon Taverner's textile and mixed media art pieces.  Fabulous colours. so rich.

The dresser was just the right place to show off cushions and quilts from RuthDesigns.  The cushion at the top of this post is also one of Ruths.

I went all red white and blue on this table!  Land Cuckoo goodies.

In case you are more of a crafter and want to have a go at making something of your own there was a selection of fabrics, patterns and kits from Maggie over at Sunflower Fabrics.

Set up next to the window where the sunshine can really show off the glorious colours are Linda Boys glass creations.  Plates, cake stands, jewellery and decorations all in jewel like colours.

Who could resist this delightful angel, handcrafted by Sew Sonja she was perfect looking after the jam!

Wow, a dresser full of jam and chutney!  All made locally by Vickie at Humber's Homemade

All together we had tables laden with handmade delights. 

And this weekend we'll be doing it all again.  There will be some new crafters with very different products that we have not had before and new fabrics, colours and products from those of us who have been before.  Thats the beauty of handmade, no two collections will be the same, even if we try!
If you are in the area do come and see us.
