As I wrote last week I will be at Blackthorpe Barn for the British Crafts this weekend. Obviously there has been publicity in the local press and for Suffolk that means a splash in the East Anglian Daily Times.
But the really good news is that the pre-eminent organisation, The Craft Council, has also recommended the British Crafts event in their list of the best eight Christmas Craft events across the UK.
I don’t actually take the Crafts Magazine myself, but I looked at their online listing and found this engaging photograph showing Margaret Gardiner presenting once of her beautiful pieces accompanying the listing for Blackthorpe Barn.
I think it is quite a coup for Blackthorpe Barn to be included in this feature and my fingers are crossed that all my fellow crafters will do well especially during these uncertain times.

Me too! I hope you all enjoy getting to know one another, making useful and pleasurable connections, as well as achieving those all-important sales goals.
😁 Thank you. I expect we will all be talking about how cold we are as it is a huge space with not much heating. It is certainly a ‘keep your coat on’ venue!
What a thrill, I do hope that it means more sales for you and your fellow crafters, all the best.
Yes, I think everyone’s pretty chuffed. And, thank you for your good wishes.
This is just the kind of attention a show needs. I hope for great sales and having lots of fun. What a cool building it is held in.
Yes, I think everybody is very pleased with an endorsement from the Crafts Council – quite a buzz about it when I was setting up there earlier today.
Fascinating times Agnes, good to get the support. Enjoy the networking and sales
Thank you. It’s always nice when a big organisation shares the love!
