  • A week to go to "Preston Presents" - dust off your passport and come over to Rutland!

    Hi all - most of you will have seen many mentions since February of the craft fair we are holding as part of "Preston Presents" here in Preston, Rutland on 30 and 31 August from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.- so now only a week to go and thought I would mention it again in case any of you are looking for a day out next weekend. We arfe fully booked and have 17 craft stalls each day and of those stalls we have 10 forum members taking part!!! 8 on the Saturday and 9 on the Sunday. So it may be that I won't want to show my face here afterwards (I hope that isn't the case).

    Getting really excited now about the whole event. The craft fair is in the village hall and then we are having an exhibition of local history in the church. In the paddocks between the two buildings there will be lots of games for the children and a few outside stalls. Teas/coffees will be served all day a- lots of yummy home made cakes! Raffle, family quiz etc etc. A great day out for the whole family. If you are interested please visit the Preston Presents site - listed below - for more information.

    If you do come please make yourself known to me and the other forum members. Could have a forum meeting - but not in front of my stall please!!!!

          Thanks Janet - the long range forecast seems to be OK for the weekend, but I will believe that when it happens!! Becky and Cathy don't panic - just get making stock!!!!

                  I'm making, I'm making!!
                  Just panicking about whether or not I have enough variety! My goodness, I didn't realise how stressful (in a fun way ) this could be!

                    Now there's a thought! Maybe we should actually be praying for rain so that everyone will take shelter in the craft hall?? Anyone know any rain dances?

                        Unfortunately the outside activities may not thank you for that - all the children's games etc!!!! However perhaps just an odd shower that is enough to "frighten" people inside!!! I am sure they won't need encouraging once they see all there is on offer.

                            I could do with that week still that it says on the header!!!!!!!!!! Seem to have spent a lot of today going from one place to the other in the village delivering things. Not only am I organising the craft fair, but doing the advertising for the whole thing, as well as printing for anything that comes up - 'phone and door bell seem to be going all the time, but the buzz is getting good here. One of our villagers is in the box office of the Uppingham Theatre for the next three nights and he came for some more flyers to take with him. Everyone is spreading the word. Small thing of my own stock to think of - might have to have my printer with me!!
