The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Welcome to MinXtures!
I'm Maria, I work from home, dressmaking and doing clothing alterations and repairs. I also have a shop on Folksy which I try to keep filled with all the other things I enjoy making. I specialise in children's PE bags but also have hats, toys, totes, phone pouches, baskets, cushions ..... I make my own patterns so I am happy to make things to order if you see an item you like but would like a different fabric/colour/size or just something completely different just contact me, always happy to help!

Perfect Patchwork is based in Devon in the Southwest of England, where I pride myself on the individuality of my work. All my items are made from the finest 100% cotton patchwork fabrics, and designer yarns. I design many of the items myself and am proud to carry an extensive range from handicraft items, household goods and beautiful quilts, from baby sizes to king size; all available on my website . I have had a keen interest in textiles for over 30years, and enjoy using a variety of techniques including patchwork, appliqué and embroidery to design and make my one off pieces

Scrapbookerry makes individual mini albums that can be used for keepsakes, memorabilia and all your special photos. All of the albums are handmade, and completely unique. Everything I make is made with as much great care and attention as if it is being made for myself, I pride myself that every item I make is made with the best available products. All of the paper, embellishments and adhesives are acid free, giving your memorabilia and pictures the longest life span possible. As well as pre made items I specialise in custom made products and am happy to discuss any ideas that you have

Please come back for the next Stall Holder Introductions soon
