I have my first Trade Show coming up fast! I’m busy getting my new designs finished off, ready for the show as we speak, so apologies in advance if my blog posts are a thin in the ground in the next few weeks.

Here’s the advert I placed in the current Crafts Magazine to promote my stand at the British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) 3-5th April.

BCTF is unique in that it is the only UK Trade Fair which caters purely for the craft industry, and consequently attracts buyers who are seeking high quality British and Irish handmade craft such as:
• Galleries.
• Larger department store groups.
• Well-known chains of stores.
• Speciality shops.
• Independent retail craft or gift shops.
• Interior Design practices.
• Fashion boutiques.
• Garden centres.
Additionally, whilst not actual buyers, representatives, selectors and buying agents also visit the fair, from both the UK 
and overseas, together with magazine writers and feature editors.
Any Trade Buyers who would like an invite, please either contact me directly or the organizers of the show through http://www.bctf.co.uk
