Hippystitch at York Makers Winter Fair - Saturday 25 November 2023

Flyer designed by Lucy Monkman

The York Makers Winter Fair is nearly here and it's going to be great! It's at Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road, York, YO23 1BW on Saturday 25 November 2023 from 10am to 4pm.  Entry is free and there is a cafe.  I shall be there and I thought you might like to know what I'm bringing.

Hippystitch Fabric Necklaces

Hippystitch Flower Button Bracelets

As well as my colourful fabric necklaces pictured above and my flower button bracelets, I shall be bringing some stitched cords which are completely new.  If you're wondering what to do with these - you can use them to wrap up presents or you can stitch them into small vessels, as pictured below...

Stitched Cords & How to Use Them

I have made some new flower button brooches which are also very colourful - some are small and some are large with leather flowers...

Small Flower Button Brooches

Large Leather Flower Button Brooches

And completely new for this year, I have a lucky dip.  These are a bargain and would make lovely Christmas presents.  They are samples, experiments or lines that I don't make any more.  Once you've had a lucky dip, you may not be able to resist coming back for more.

Lucky Dip Bags

I will be bringing other things too but just thought you'd like to get a taster.

There will also be lots of other local makers there too selling ceramics, woodturned items, leather goods, stained glass, terrazzo homeware, wildlife inspired sculpture, jewellery, textiles both knitted and stitched, felted items, art, prints, cards, and baked goods. Take a look at York Makers on facebook or instagram to find out more about the Winter Fair stallholders and for a chance to win a £25 voucher to spend at the fair (giveaway closes on Monday 20 November at 6pm).

Christmas Cards & Justacard Christmas Pin

And remember,  all us makers, artists and small businesses really appreciate it when you buy from us, even if it's just a card.  In fact you can read more about the justacard campaign here.  Please follow and support @justacard which encourages people to value and buy from artists, makers, independent shops and small businesses.  In fact I've added my Justacard Christmas pin with the pictures of my Christmas cards above and below.  I shall be wearing it at the Winter Fair on Saturday!
