Introducing our Christmas Fair Stall Holders......

New to the third Kitsch and Stitch fair

Soapie products are all handmade by Lizzie Smith, using high quality soap bases, perfumes and colourings and are beautifully presented making them ideal gifts for your friends & family or the perfect indulgence item just for yourself.

Rose's work is hand built using stoneware & porcelain clays. She is particularly interested in textures and tone produced by using found objects including textiles, plants, seed heads & other natural forms.

Gillian and Kirsty return with their handmade and hand printed 
creative textile items,
brooches, bags and knitted hats and scarves.

Marti Murchison is a textile artist and craftswoman, based in the south east of England. Her work uses techniques such as appliqué, patchwork, collage, and machine and hand embroidery.
Where possible, Marti prefers to use recycled fabrics and materials which she has been actively sourcing and collecting for many years.

Kate Tullett sources fabrics and materials locally, scouring reclamation yards, car booties, the internet and charity shops for just the right frame, the perfect fabric or the cutest button to finish a piece off. She uses these materials with her own personal touch of hand-embroidered proverbs, poems and song lyrics to create one-off products.

 In Lizzie Bloom's jewellery range every fabric remnant becomes an exquisite 
tactile gem on the final product.
Every piece is handcrafted using meticulously sourced fabrics. These include
seasonal printed silks and lawns from Liberty of London, luxurious tweeds 
from the celebrated mills of Linton, fine
Italian Silks and a few classics in denim and cotton ticking. 

Simply Vintage Designs was born from a love of all things vintage and 
handmade. Combining her two passions Melissa Waudby has developed a product range that is constantly evolving, created from unusual and vintage china, crystal, glassware and fabrics. 
Some of you have been waiting for Melissa to return with her 
DIY cake stands.

Teeny Tiny House
Lucy Boston designs and creates beautiful homewares and gifts.

Hand crafted and stitched vintage inspired cards and gifts, made using fantastic papers, vintage lace and fabrics,with vintage images and pretty embellishments.  Beautiful hand knitted and crocheted items including blankets, cushions,
