From Friday 16th to Sunday 18th September we held a stand at the Handmade Fair at The Green at Hampton Court. After such a successful event last year we couldn't resist coming back and meeting lots of new & exsisting crafters but also some amazing talented exhibitors too.
Our Stand WI44 in the West Shopping Village.
On Friday, the rain was hammering down and we all wondered if it would have any effect on people visiting the show. However, we were all proved wrong as a small bit of rain wasn't going to put these crafters off coming to the show, they came prepared with wellies and ponchos so they could move around the fair with ease.
We also had two lovely young visitors come to the stand who had visited us last year. They wanted to show us that they still had their Witts Design tote bag which they received at the show last year. It was great to see them.

Our Beach Comber Collection went down a storm at the show, especially our lobster (which we have sold out of in all of our product range) with the mussel and crab not following that far behind. We are so happy with the reaction to our new collection and can't wait to design more amazing prints.

At 2:30 on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, Stephanie our Managing Director held a workshop : Printing on Fabric.
Stephanie Witts & her Workshop Board
Everyone was given A3 card, craft knives, pencils and four Dylon fabric paints. They drew their own design, cut it out and then stencilled the design onto a set of napkins for them to take away.
