The last couple of days I’ve been busy at the ESMOD stand at the Craft Show – the brief was to drape Circa’s vintage mannequins in tulle and ribbon, as well as setting up the Darnell Collection mannequins, which are displaying garments from 1840 to 1990s.
It’s a great show: lots of things to do and see, free workshops on everything from fabric dyeing to knitting and scrap-booking. Today was pretty quiet, so there was lots of room and opportunity to talk with people. I bought some long strands of glass pearl beads for the shop, and met a lovely lady who can make hand mirrors for Circa, using some of the vintage fabrics I have.
I’ll be there tomorrow: if you’re in the neighbourhood, drop in and say “hi”. You’ll find the ESMOD stand in the middle of the main pavilion.
