Newark ... a heavenly weekend !

I have just returned after being treated to a romantic weekend in Newark - we stayed in a wonderful hotel in the heart of the cty and had a lovely time taking in the museums and walking along the banks of the river Trent in the sunshine (yes, sunshine!) as well as taking time to browse round the antiques and collectibles market and even investigate the deepest, darkest corners of the amazing antiques centre!
I've arrived home with a plethora of wonderous bead making materials including sheet music, 1980's Queen & Freddie Mercury calendars, tatty books and magazines not to mention oddles of gorgeous vintage beads ... I am in heaven !

Artsmix Arts & Crafts Market

I had a wonderful time with the Artsmix team at the Arts & Crafts Market in Leeds yesterday. It was lovely to meet so many people truly interested in arts and crafts and appreciative of all the effort that we crafters put into our art.

I can't wait for the next market ... hope to see you there !

Albion Place, Leeds City Centre

The last few weeks have found me busy, busy, busy preparing for the Artsmix Valentine’s Arts & Crafts Market which is taking place on Albion Place, Leeds on Saturday 12th February.

I’m really excited about working with Artsmix as they are dedicated to showcasing individual and unique arts and crafts so what better place to browse and buy the perfect present for your special someone this Valentine’s Day?

Why not treat yourself to a visit to Leeds to indulge in a little retail therapy at the Artsmix Valentine’s Arts & Crafts Market ... not to mention the rest of the fabulous shops including Harvey Nichols AND the fabulous Victoria Quarter !

Make a day of it ... stay for a bite to eat or afternoon tea at one of the many restaurants and coffee bars then round off your day with a visit to the theatre or the cinema ... what could be more perfect??

The Artsmix Arts and Crafts Markets will take place regularly throughout February, March and April and you will find me there on 12th February, 12th March and 9th April.

Find the Artsmix Valentine’s Arts & Crafts Market on Albion Place, Leeds (between WH.Smith and La Senza) - 5 minutes’ walk from the bus and train stations. Leeds City Centre has plenty of car parks for all day parking (use postcode LS1 6JL for sat nav directions)
