cropped-scarfcopys.jpgSHOW & TELL – your chance to share your work with others

Standard
This is the ARCHIVE of all the SHOW & TELL POSTS, and will be updated as new ones are published.  For more information about contributing to this Archive, please see the bottom of this page.

When I got an ‘annual report’ from wordpress at the end of 2014, on this site, the most visited pages were the SHOW & TELL FEATURES – especially the one on  DECORATING KROMSKI’S FANTASIA SPINNING WHEEL.   

I love the idea that something posted in May 2013 is still getting visitors and inspiring others. (In fact I got a request for the contact details from a Spinning Magazine, and the last I heard was that an article was about to be published which included Christine’s work!)

 

This site is intended as a resource for craftspeople

of all kinds, so please join in!

 

THE ARCHIVE

 

The list below is not as long as I’d like it to be and hopefully I will be adding more  new posts soon:

5/2015  Some thoughts on a Gallery of Your Work: posted on 10 June 2015

With a link to the Gallery published on 31 May this is a muse on how to make the idea work – I came to the conclusion that I would keep the idea running, and asked you to continue to send in pictures of your work at any time, and I would put together new Galleries whenever I have enough pictures to make a Gallery Display – smile.

Further information on what kind of work and how to contribute are also  discussed – things may change – but please check this listing out before sending photos.

An open invitation to all customers and readers of this blog, to send in a photo of your work so I can put it up on a gallery that will hopefully      inspire others – smile

Tilly, my 6 month old “kitten” in the garden

Welcome to 2015!

I have been doing an online blogging101 course on WordPress this month (January 2015) and as the first assignment, we were asked to introduce ourselves – this is the way I did it!

If you’d like to look at my current stock,  please see the right hand column, clicking on these links opposite will give you a chance to browse.   Please have a look at the BUYING DIRECT  page for more information, and how to order.

I first had this idea a few years ago, and periodically asked my customers to contribute to this feature, but somehow they are either too shy, or too busy,or feel its too much work!  Please don’t  let that put you off!  I will publish all contributions, whether you are just starting up or a professional – tho’ I reserve the right to edit your contribution slightly – and will give you a chance to publicise your work and for others to contact you if you want them to.

NB:  any interesting craft project, of any type, including spinning, weaving, felting, sewing, knitting, quilting, woodwork, stained glass etc etc is welcome, and I’d especially like to feature people who are learning and want to share their first projects.  This is open to anyone who happens to read my blog, whether you are one of my customers or not!

There is no time limit on this – just send me something any time you feel like – please use the form on the CONTACT ME page, to let me know what your project is about and I will reply to your email, so you can send in some pictures.

All my customers are added to my PRIVATE MAILING LIST  – 

which I use to let you know when I’ve put up a new blog that might be of interest to you, or to let you know about new stock, AND about special offers available only to those on the mailing list.  To Add Yourself to the list, please fill in the form at the bottom of  the SHOP TALK PAGE.
