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.

Meet more of the Christmas CRAFTfest Stall Holders - Teal Group

Would you like to know a little bit about all of the Christmas CRAFTfest stall holders?
We are doing a selection of blogs with a little information about the stall holders so that you can have a sneaky peak before the event on the 26th and 27th November.

'Vintage Beadery, Ley Holloway, makes unique and beautiful jewellery using finds from her local beaches, along with a mixture of vintage, recycled and modern beads. The styles range from simple and classic, to exotic fantasies with myriads of beaded strands or woven 'fabrics' of beads surrounding the sea glass and ceramics. Pieces can be made to commission using a stone or beach find you have, or one supplied by Ley.'

Hello I'm Kerry Giles and I have always been interested in all things crafty and have been making handmade craft items for a few years now. I love to see the expression on peoples faces, when they receive something made with love and care and decided to share that experience with you all, that's how Crafts from the Heath started. I'm always trying new designs along with new materials and enjoy making gifts and home accessories suitable for that someone special.

I crochet all types of beautiful items such as hats, scarves, ponchos, blankets, cardigans...the list is endless! Most of what I make is customized and each item I make is so different from the last. I enjoy finding new things I can crochet and I also sometimes make a few things from felt such as owls and hearts. Right now I am getting orders for winter items and I am working on Christmas decorations. I love what I make and I love making my customers happy!

Unusual, original, illustrative whimsy,
Silly, fun, cute and occasionally strange,
Eccentric, eclectic, historical, and fantasy,
All designed by me as part of my range.

Kittys, dogs and birds come to life in my workshop
Mixed with the spice of historical themes
Inspired by everything, sometimes I cant stop
Thinking of new designs, even in my dreams.

Come and have a look,let me spread a few smiles
Come and share the fun, find a thing you adore
Jolly little gifts all made in the British Isles
Most available from stock from my Hollowbourne store
