The weekend is drawing to a close and we thought we’d update you on what fantastic things happened!

During the craft fair at Gawsworth Hall a couple of weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to have a lady stop by our stall and chat to us for a few minutes. Angela, from Macclesfield was admiring the work and we were all having a good old gossip when she announced she had lots of vintage lace at her home she was looking to put to good use. She was really keen on donating this to us and actually left the fair and came back, arms bursting with three bags of beautiful Vintage lace, some dating back from the Victorian era! As you can imagine, we were like kids in a sweetshop, pulling out the most gorgeous, delicate lace in fantastic shades of cream, gold, white… it was stunning! Angela then invited us to her house, an offer Joanne accepted this weekend. It was a treasure trove of hand spun lace, antique goodies and the most amazing pair of elbow length gloves from around 1920!! Those gloves are definitely going to get an
airing at the next craft fair! Angela and her husband John had acquired this from a variety of sources including Angela’s mother, a lady who used to work in a textile factory in the 1930’s- 1940’s and generous hospices that Angela volunteers at. After allowing Joanne to ransack their home for over 3 hours yesterday we want to thank them so very much and have donated a Vintage Twee gift hamper to the East Cheshire Hospice in Macclesfield to raise money for their next raffle.

We’ve also been talking lots about our next ventures and are looking at doing lots more exciting and collectable products in the up-coming months. Themed party picks, Christmas tree decorations and a Valentines range are all in the pipeline.. watch this space!!
