Return to Raft of Dunster

Things went so much better with my woven items as they ended up staying for the whole weekend. If you remember, they were only going to be exhibited for a couple of hours on Friday evening. I’m so pleased and grateful to Jen for the opportunity. Thanks lovely Jen πŸŒ·πŸ’ŸπŸ˜ŠπŸ’πŸ’•πŸŒΊπŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸŒ»

I popped in to collect the remainng items this afternoon and I actually remembered to take some photos (with my phone though, so not the best quality images, sorry).

Here are some of the items on the shop’s ladder…

 

It’s a fab ladder don’t you think?

Someone wrapped each rung with tissue to protect the weave catching.

Some other views of the store…

Thank you so much to Jen and her lovely team for this opportunity. It’s just what I needed at this point in my life. I sold one item and there were some very nice remarks and much admiration for my makes.

Note: I would like to add I have not received payment of any kind to promote Raft Clothing. I have done so out of gratitude and a belief in supporting small local business.

I took my items along toΒ Raft this morning. They were displayed later today after I had left so I don’t have a photo for you. The image above is of the medieval yarn market and the Raft store is to the right, just out of view. Unfortunately nobody visited the shop this evening but Jen has very kindly offered to to keep my items on display until Monday afternoon. At this time of year there is so many other things going on. Also it’s Dunster by candlelight next weekend. See below πŸ™‚

Doesn’t the castle look amazing lit up like that? In the foreground, middle right, is the yarn market. They have a continual programme of musicians and singers during the festival. Fabulous πŸ™‚

You can arrive by steam train if you wish…

We love living here.

Hand-woven items heading to Dunster…

This morning I’ve been preparing labels and a hand written sign explaining who I am.

There’s a small boutique in Dunster where I buy some of my clothes. It’s a lovely store for me to shop in as it’s quiet and well lit with natural daylight. Jen, the manager, often has out of hours special shopping evenings and on Friday she is hosting such an event with the addition of a few local crafts people. Jen invited me to participate!Β  She understands about my sensory processing difficulties and is willing to display my wares even though I cannot be there. I will set my price and I think she will add a bit too that to cover her time. It’s only fair and I’m completely happy with that.

So I have eight woven items that are going to be displayed on the rungs of the shop’s wooden ladder. Sounds perfect doesn’t it? πŸ˜ƒ

These are the lovelies that are heading to Raft of Dunster…
