Quick Weekend Report Part 2

9 Mar


… on Sunday I was at Arts and Crafts for Spring at Woodhall Spa, in Lincolnshire.  The venue was very picturesque – Petwood Hotel has massive gardens surrounding it. (It actually has much prettier bits of the garden – this was just a quick snap, as I was on my way home.)

It was built in Victorian times in a tudor style, but I think you can also see a Victorian Gothic influence on the stunning main entrance.

Its actually got more history than your average craft venue – it was used as the base for the Dambusters squadron in 2ndWW!

Anyway, back to the crafts, I had a lovely sunny spot next to the window to display some of my new designs – I will post more about them soon.

There were lots of friendly stallholders there of course including Gingham Heart Crafts, Donna Evans, and DaisyFleur.

Now I’m thinking ahead to where the next event will be……?

On Sunday 7th March, the event is being held at the historic venue which was once the base for the Dambusters squadron in World War 2.  Now its a hotel, set in acres of gardens – good for having a wonder after the fair.

For more info have a look at the Events page or the organisers website (opens new windows).
