Oooh I'm jealous, it's beautiful up there...plus they have loads of hills to roll down in converted bathtubs apparently ;)

I grew up in 'Lovejoy' country and we frequently had roads closed while they were filming which was a complete nightmare at times - great fun watching the episodes though playing 'spot our village' :D

Hello! I live in a tiny village equidistant from Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester. I make cards, some very simple beady-type jewellery (to go with the Capt Tortue clothes I sell, largely) and take French clubs and amdram and sing. And I used to read Tarot, too - now you've all mentioned it I'm quite twitchy to get back into it again. And I look after my gorgeous little 4-yr-old.

I have also lived in Otley, so Hi Sue from Otley!

I make jewellery when I have time (i.e. not on the forum whilst I am sitting in my office pretending to do work)

I am so jealous of the amount of bead shops in England, there seems to be loads, although Scotland ha about six of its very own shops, one of which I have visited

Well, where do I start?????? Born in Warrington in Lancs, brought up in Leicester, lived in S****horpe, Doncaster, Edinburgh, Hampshire, now my caravan has come to rest back in Leicester, on the outskirts not too far from Bradgate Park.

In my time I have been a knitter, sewer,embroiderer, cake maker, cross stitcher, patchwork and quilter, now a machine embroiderer making ring pillows..

I knitted and sewed when my children were small, trained as a chef and made wedding and birthday cakes, after a trip to the US I started cross stitch and then patchwork and quilting. I have just been able to buy my dream machine and am now combining quilting with machine embroidery and making ring pillows.:D:D Oh I almost forgot, I embroider inserts for card making too.....................

Hello..........I live in Embo,Dornoch Scotland.Its claim to fame is that Madonna married here.I have been in to UK for about 3 yrs,coming from Virginia U.S.I was a floral designer for 26 yrs.and then went on the southern craft show trail for about 4 yrs.I paint funiture (shabby chic ) and do a lot of sewn crafts. I also do a lot of Americana.When I first came to the U.K. I lived in County Durham and painted some funiture for dealers but not really gotten into much sence I came to Scotland. Am thinking of starting up again but really don't want to go the craft show route again. Would rather sell to shops and stay at home. Anyone have any ideas how I can go about marketing my wares? Things are so much diffrent here.I could go into a shop anywhere in Va and sell with no problem,but here when I can find a shop that looks like they may carry what I do they will not talk to me.Could use any ideas you may have.:)

Just having a look to see if anyone is "local"- it can seem rather lonely in my little corner of the world sometimes!!!

I am origianlly from SE London but have lived in Kent for about 20 years now. I knit but most of my crafty time now is spent papercrafting!:)


I was bought up in kent - Tonbridge, then moved to ashford. My fella is from essex but was living in gloucester when we met, we moved to gloucester when we had our little boy. I dont get down to kent much anymore, once or twice a year to visit the family! i wouldnt move back again, but I have quite a nostalgic feeling each time i'm driving down on the m20 to see my family!!

Sunny Somerset - well it is today! On the levels to be accurate, we rent a farm cottage and are surrounded by glorious countryside.

For the last five years or so I have been painting and selling on eBay and recently started making dolls house furniture (most of my paintings are miniatures for the dolls house market) and am now really thinking about getting involved in organanising some local art and crafts fairs.

I work mainly in stained and fused glass, but have recently been doing some mosaics too. I think a google map so we could mark where we are is a great idea. :)

In my time I have been a knitter, sewer,embroiderer, cake maker, cross stitcher, patchwork and quilter, now a machine embroiderer making ring pillows..

I knitted and sewed when my children were small, trained as a chef and made wedding and birthday cakes, after a trip to the US I started cross stitch and then patchwork and quilting. I have just been able to buy my dream machine and am now combining quilting with machine embroidery and making ring pillows.:D:D Oh I almost forgot, I embroider inserts for card making too.....................

Keep out of the Rhodadendrons then I am told they are responsible for hiding a ot of mischief. I was Leicester born - Braunston Town but have lived in Warwickshire most of my life. Family still in Leicester. I am a quilter, painter, poet, anything that goes really. Nice to meet ya

There again, I live in Wakefield now, so all that running about when I was younger didn't get me very far! :D

I'm an ex-pat Tyke but I've lived in N. Wales for several years, most of them in Corwen - which is stuck between Llangollen and Betws y Coed on the A5 and missed by most people as they pass through.

I've made Corn Dollies since I was a kid (my dad taught me) I'm currently making soap (HP and MP), other bath goodies and felt bowls but pick up crochet and knitting from time to time - haven't touched my spinning wheel for ages though.

hello,
i too am a hedgewitch.
although readings are not generally classed as a craft, some fairs do let me do them....i also sell herbs and potions at certain fairs.
i spin, make peg looms, drop spindles and i also paint roses and castles on absolutely anything......
my roots are in south Wales, both my parents being Welsh, but i grew up on the coast of Somerset.
i am now living in South Wales, but i travel far and wide to do craft fairs, staying in my touring van for up to 3 weeks at a time..lol.

If you look on the jewellery section of the forum there are lots of threads on making jewellery. If you have a local craft shop that holds classes you could try one of those, or you could buy a book or magazine.
Where are you from Craftypro? :)
