Darrin took me into Exeter the other weekend and to my great pleasure the Christmas Market was in town. Being dairy-intolerant is somewhat of a problem when you are faced with fancy French cakes and Italian chocolate nougats… but a girl can still drool, right?!

I had a really fab time and found a new decoration for our Christmas tree. I really hope they come back next year too.

Hope you are enjoying the run up to Christmas too,

In this episode I’m talking about the Crediton Farmer’s Market, the Crediton Spinning Circle, home and garden!

Wow, what a beautiful day!

Saturday was hot, hot, hot… so not the best day to spin, but certainly the right day for a market. I had a wonderful response from the market stall holders and the visitors. Plenty of people had a go and I think I definitely got some interest from potential customer’s and fellow crafters who didn’t know I worked locally.

Some of you did ask about more advanced spindle kits, as up until now I have just a basic starter kit. Well, the wait is over, as I have a few new kits with varying weight spindles, geared towards various aspects of spindle spinning and yarn creation. Come and find them at Spinning and Spindle Kits

I’m hoping the market will be a regular thing and have pencilled in the dates… but do drop by the website and check my event diary before you go, as it is a big market it is over subscribed and I’m yet to secure that permanent pitch. However, I am on the casual list… so let’s see how that goes.

Also mentioned the market in my podcast at http://sarastexturecrafts.podbean.com/2011/06/08/episode-3-home/
