However my initial fears were quickly dispelled - what a busy show it was. Thursday was a little on the quiet side but the Friday and Saturday were very busy. Many people had not visited a retail craft/stitching show before and absolutely loved it. I know there were a few parking problems with it being so busy, but I have every confidence the organisers will pay attention to this problem for next year.
One of the highlights of the exhibition for me was when one of my regular customers visited me and brought some of her work to show me. I was overwhelmed by it and here are a couple of photos. Many thanks for bringing in your work Jacqui. Jacqui's mixed media work, incorporating Friendly Plastic, is superb. She does undertake commissions, at I might add a very reasonable cost. If anybody would like a commission let me know and I will put in contact with her.

Over the course of the exhibition 3 of us took the opportunity to say with friends (from the exhibition world) as they only lived about half an hour away. Many thanks to them for their hospitality and relaxing evenings - good food and wine was enjoyed by all. On the Friday evening of the show as were driving back I could not help myself saying 'stop the van' so I could take the following photo of a beautiful sunset over the reservoir.
