Country Living Christmas Fair prep underway

Well, I'm slowly working through the check list for the Country Living Christmas Fair in London this November. Started printing the new designs yesterday which was great!

I've also just ordered a child and adult dress mannequin as I felt that the aprons were not displayed as well as they could have been at the Spring fair. I've also just received a lamp shade kit in the post today so we will be making a prototype this weekend, I'll post a picture of it when it's done!

Many thanks for coming back to read the W&A blog! See you soon.

Presenting the Fox, Red Squirrel, Mouse and Barn Owl

Well, it took a little longer than expected to get some good drawing done and get the new designs ready, but I picked up the new screen today so I shall be printing the new Whinberry & Antler designs tomorrow. I am looking forward to taking them to the Country Living Christmas Fair at the start of November (7th-11th) to see what people make of them. My favourite is the fox, but foxes and badgers are probably my favourite of the British wildlife!
