Sock 2011 - An arts and crafts commission and purchase fair

This was my first year exhibiting with Sock and it was fantastic! There were 30 artists/designers at the event and the standard of work was exceptional, I found the whole experience very inspiring. Below you can see a picture of my stand, everything squeezed on nicely!

I launched a few new products including some whimsical embroidered paper pieces and bird pictures.

I have also introduced a new range of tractor wheel inspired brooches again using discarded fabrics, found objects and in many cases they are adorned with intricate beading.
