First day of the Christmas Craft Fair today at The Plasterwork Studio, Southend, Essex. Great to see lots of local designers and makers with fabrics, ceramics, knitwear and other stylish handmade products. Penelope Barritt was one of the winners in the Paisley Power "Guess the paisley celebrity" competition and she chose a rat-pattern cushion as her prize. She also decided to buy one, so now she will have two in her home. She brought her dog George with her today who was wearing a silk dog bandana which I co-designed.
