I have been making my crafts for nearly 15 years now and enjoy doing very much. It all started when I lived in Germany. I decided that I would like to take up a craft, so I taught myself how to make the lovely Ribbon Decorations which I have in my CRAFTfest stall. It all started with the basic Ball decoration and then just expanded to different shapes. They are all individual and unique in some way.
I then branched out and began making other items made from fabric such as the Brooches and other Tree decorations. I also make Plaited Wreaths from fabric amongst lots of other things at Christmas Time.
I like to attend local craft fairs but mainly nearer Christmas, especially one which is held in our town centre, it has been very successful for me the last two years that I have attended.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop. 

Makeaholic sells craft and jewellery supplies aswell as handmade gifts. Based in the Scottish Borders we make and sell handmade products from fabric to feather and from Tibetan Silver to Sterling Silver findings.
We are here to help whether you are buying from our craft box to make your own creative piece or treating yourself to our handmade gifts.

Drawing inspiration from my surroundings on the Somerset Levels I make soaps, bath goodies and candles. All of my ingredients are natural, fragrance is from essential oils and colours, when they are used, are from natural sources. All of my products are vegetarian friendly and most are vegan friendly. Where possible I use local ingredients – botanicals are grown in my garden or harvested from the local hedgerows and the honey and beeswax used in some of the soaps and lip balms are from the hives nearby. All of my soaps are made in small batches ensuring they are as fresh as possible 

Here at Beatific Jewellery you will find a stunning selection of necklaces and bracelets for sale. Each piece is made with care and attention to detail, using a selection of beads including glass beads, semi-precious stones, shell beads and acrylic beads.
Each piece is uniquely handcrafted. There are NO two identical pieces – NO two pieces will ever be the same in colour, style and type of beads!
Each piece can also be personalised and made to measure making it a special gift for weddings, anniversaries or birthdays.
Alternatively, if there is something that you would specifically like, you can send me an email or submit an online form via the contact page.
Each piece of jewellery comes in an organza bag.

I have had a passion since childhood for fossils and gemstones & have been collecting for many years. As a family we go on fossil hunting expeditions, but there is only so much you can keep for yourself, so crafting with fossils and gemstones is a real treat! I enjoy knitting, crochet and working with yarn and wool, making items from simple scarfs through to hand made handbags. Inspiration often taken from nature, or by the look of how differing yarns, wool and other products work together. Each of these items will be unique and guaranteed hand made.I enjoy recycling and upcycling and a recent passion has been creating items from Gent's neck ties, handbags, aprons, accessories and a variety of other items.

A selection of animal print cat beds, cushions & cat toys; large blankets, cat-themed gifts & cards all individually handemade by Rachel but tested and approved by All Things Blankets resident kitties.

Unique, high quality handmade jewellery that make you feel special and extraordinary.
Hand embroidered jewellery made with colorful beads, gemstones and silk soutache braids.

CRAFTfest is back!

CRAFTfest is back!

We are delighted to announce that the fourth CRAFTfest will be held from 
Saturday 9th June – Saturday 16th June 2012 
at Creative Connections. 

Ever fancied being a seller at a craft fair, but never had the opportunity to take part due to family commitments, travel, or costs?
Well, now you can!

At Creative Connections, we are hosting our Fourth CRAFTfest on the 9th June 2012 for ONE WHOLE WEEK.

The idea of CRAFTfest is to showcase sellers using interactive albums, 'your stall', which allows your sellers to browse and purchase items through an interactive link in your product descriptions, 'your voice'.

You can sit behind your computer screen, and sell interactively to your sellers through Creative Connections chat room, Facebook, Twitter, and many other social networking sites.

CRAFTfest is a week- long event, running all day, every day, so wherever in the world you may be, the fest is open to the public 24/7.
CRAFTfest  is held on the Creative Connections Network, which is a friendly community of online crafters. The social network itself was established in August 2009 and now has members from all over the world.

Are you interested in a stall?
If you would like to participate in 
CRAFTfest and host your own stall during the week we have our own dedicated website and booking for you.
Due to the huge amount of work involved in hosting 
CRAFTfest there will be a small stall charge of £5 for the CRAFTfest June 2012 event. This money will go towards site and admin costs.

By purchasing a stall at 
CRAFTfest you will also be supplied with:

· A digital flyer that you can post on the Internet and also print at home to put up in offices/schools etc.

· Various badges for blogs, Facebook pages etc.

· Free advertising on stall lists, Twitter, Facebook etc, membership to an advertising group where you can get together with other Crafters and promote each other and the event.

· The opportunity to create your own 
CRAFTfest stall on the Creative Connections Social Network linking customers to your products wherever they may be on the Internet. (Please note that only confirmed stalls will be permitted. All unauthorised stalls will be removed).

A little about CRAFTfest
We were one of the first online craft fairs, and 
CRAFTfest isn’t just a virtual online craft fair! The main difference with CRAFTfest to other craft fairs is that it is a community experience. The whole event is hosted on our Crafters Social Network; we are not just about uploading items to your stall and trying to sell things. We are about the bigger picture, making friends, interacting with other crafters, people who understand your passion, and your craft. We are about having fun in the forums and chatting in the chat room, exchanging tips, learning new ideas and speaking to other crafters that have years, months or weeks of experience. We can all learn something new from other people doing the same as us, running a business by ourselves and trying to make a living from crafting.
