And...I won a handbag in the raffle, by pulling my own name out of the hat no less! Those of you who were at the Sew Weekly meet up will know I somehow managed to do it then as well, how creepy is that? It's a large bright orange handbag and I love it! Such a great prize for a wonderful day, everyone was lovely to me and so kind and helpful. I've even got a commission piece to do and have been given some very useful contacts for other fairs and have been invited back to the next one at the venue I was at today. I think I can safely say today went well. I've put all the money I made today to one side as my float for my next stall as think this is the safest option, as if I put it anywhere near my current account it'll get spent on fabric...I can tell!
Here's a few pictures of my stall, they're taken at different times during the day so there's a little less consistency than I'd like but was trying to take pictures for my own record of how I set things out and not of the people at the stall.

I'm completely shattered but happy and can't wait to do another one! Oh Oh! And I made my first sale on my etsy shop this week! Hurray! Oh oh! And I had my first sewing class today as joined a free sewing class. Oh oh! And I got a bonus at work and am due to get another, so will put it towards a new camera! Such a good week for me! hehe!
Happy sewing everybody!
