"The Sunday Post"

Phew, what a day! I decided yesterday afternoon to take a trip to Spring Fair at the Birmingham NEC. As a fairly new designer I thought it would be best to check out the fair before committing to a vastly expensive stand in the future! So this morning my mum and I headed up to Birmingham to have a look around.

And gosh am I glad I visited... for a start it was indeed 'massive' (as I had heard from friends and contacts) but it was also well worth the visit. I got a good feel for the event, what the stands and different halls were like and even met some of my lovely twitter contacts too! So hopefully one day soon you will see Charlotte Macey Textiles at Spring or Autumn Fair! Exciting.

This week I also received my much-anticipated custom rubber stamp in the post... and I love it! I ordered it along with some lovely navy blue ink (I wasn't content with plain old black) and am more than happy with the results. Great for stamping onto my brown paper bags for upcoming fairs, above is a little example of my stamping handiwork!

And with only one week to go til Valentines, why not pop over to my website for a browse through some of my handmade textile goodies and lovely Valentines dotty hearts cards! x


  1. Lovely stamp. Can I ask where you got it from please? x

  2. Hi Clare, the stamp was made for me by The English Stamp Company. They are very good!
