Flaming June?! Well Crafting June probably better sums it up!

So June is now here - I don't know about you but this year is flying by.  Maybe it's because we don't really seem to have gotten started weather wise or maybe it's because I haven't lifted my head high enough from my stitching to notice time going by!
I am very excited this month to be taking part in Fusion at West Dean College in Chichester.  West Dean is famous for woven tapestry's and so I am hoping that my tapestry needlepoint designs will be well accepted.  It's a great weekend event with many activities taking place, I'm looking forward to meeting other makers and craftspeople there.

As my time will be taken up by this event I will not be able to attend some of the Craft and Maker Fairs happening in Brighton.  If you are visiting be sure to take time and visit Makers Boutique on 8th June at Brighton Unitarian Church, always an eclectic mix of makers and designers they also have a residency at the Fishing Quarter on the seafront until August. Craftaganza on 15th June will be held in Fabrica which is in the centre of good ol' Brighton Town, there are some great makers this time check out their blog to "meet the makers".  Finally as if that wasn't enough Brighton Craft Alliance round the month off on 22nd June back at the Unitarian Church it will be the first time in the centre of town for this new team so take a look and see what you think.

Finally a big mention to We Make London who celebrate their 5th Birthday this year.  Mary and the team really are some of the hardest working people promoting craft and designers around.  Without them I would not have been brave enough to take my "wares" to London last year.  Have a great time visiting them in Camden Lock on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month until September. Happy Birthday!!!
