The famous Country Living Fair has moved to Alexandra Palace. It’s a fab show for craftsmanship and new businesses – I’ll be making a beeline for the Pop-up Market for crafters, makers, designers and artists who create their products at home.
Don’t miss sampling the goodies of the kitchen table bakers, chocolatiers, organic wine producers and traditional farmers.
And, of course, there’s the Country Living Garden, designed by Horticolous. Plus there are lots of gorgeous things to get for your summer garden, as well fashion, accessories and homes products.
Silk scarves and cushions
Do drop in on my friend Jacqui Sinnatt, who runs St Agnes Eve silk scarves. She’s on stand H29 -very near the Drunken Duck Champagne Bar!
She’s a designer and photographer, who has turned photographs of her favourite flowers, gardens and other things into beautiful silk scarves and accessories.
Many of Jacqui’s designs are based on flowers in her own garden or on gardens she’s visited. Although she’s turned thrownaway cans on Dungeness beach and jumbo jets in the sky over London into scarves, too.
This year she’s launching her Annabelle cushion collection, inspired by gardens.
A scarf inspired by your own garden?
I think one of her best ideas is her bespoke scarves, an ideal ‘big present’ for someone. This is a scarf specifically designed to reflect the things that are important to you.
One client ordered one for his mother’s 90th birthday present. It’s based on olive trees but also features her beloved poodle Poupou! The scarf is presented in a gift box with a card telling the story and inspiration behind the design.
Contact St Agnes Eve direct if you want to find out how much bespoke scarves cost.
Craft workshops and talks
There’s also a programme of workshops and talks – working with chocolate, printing, sewing and needle-felting as well as an Annie Sloan Chalk Paints workshop.
