Have you heard about The Handmade Fair? Even though I write a thrifty blog every week, subscribe to craft magazines and love a bit of lifestyle DIY, I somehow managed to miss this event when it launched in 2014. Okay, I’ve only missed out on one year of crafty fun, but I’m not going to make that mistake again! After reading all the wonderful blogger reviews after the event and checking out all the inspirational photos in Mollie Makes, I am super-excited to be visiting the show later this month. I. Can’t. Wait.
The Handmade Fair is the highlight of the social calendar for knitters, sewers, cooks and crafters everywhere, and the ‘queen of craft’ Kirstie Allsopp is at the helm. The cry rings out across the festival; ‘Get Britain Crafting!’ and there’s literally something for everyone. Yes, even my husband is looking forward to the upcycling Skills Workshop and is just as excited as I am to learn a few new crafts in the Grand Makes sessions!
Far from being just another tiny craft tent at a country show, this event spreads throughout the grounds of Hampton Court Palace and is full of inspirational craft-making with Kirstie Allsopp’s best designers and artisans teaching skills and selling craft products all weekend.
I’m delighted to tell you that I have FIVE pairs of tickets for the Handmade Fair to give away to my lovely readers. You can visit the event on the day of your choice (Friday 18th Sept, Saturday 19th Sept or Sunday 20th September) and take a pal with you to enjoy all the fun of this crafty fair with these entry-only tickets (worth £30 a pair!). Simply enter via the rafflecopter widget below – each action will earn you extra entries – and the 5 lucky winners will be picked at random on 10th September. Ticket redemption codes will be emailed to the winners on 11th September and must be redeemed online to book your tickets for the day of your choice. Good luck and hopefully I’ll see you there!
