This was the last little bit of calm before the storm that was the Cardiff Craft & Hobby Show last weekend.
This was the nearest the Headmaster could get to his own till for most of the weekend.
Cardiff extended a very warm welcome, from the a well thought out build up and breakdown to the lovely Sara who kept us topped up with tea and coffee when she realised we couldn't get off the stand! We caught up with all our Welsh friends, thank you so much for stopping by, watching the demos and sharing lots of smiles and laughter. it was lovely to see you all.
This was a great little show for both customers and exhibitors alike. The venue is really easy to get to with a huge amount of free parking right outside, the mix of stitch, beads and papercraft was well balanced with lots of original gift ideas from the artists selling their amazing carvings from coal, jewellery, scarves, cupcakes, cushions, dolls, bags and so much more on the floor above us.
Can you tell we had a ball? Well, if you want to join us next time the dates you want for your diary are Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May and you will find us in the same spot.
