Pop Up Making Corner at The Vintage and Retro Fair

23 May

When Kelly from Belle’s Events asked us to set up a Makers Corner for their first Vintage & Retro Fair in Horsham we jumped at the chance. There are going to be over 35 exhibitors and we are running a Pop-up Vintage Makes Craft Corner, very exciting! Splendid Occasions is running a Vintage tearoom, a Hair and beauty parlour plus Dawns Vintage Do has arranged a whole host of entertainment for everyone.

This is the first Fair of this kind in Horsham and hopefully will be the first of many.

Having had a good think about what types of crafts and makes we could offer you, bearing in mind the constraints of the event and wanting it to be suitable for children and adults plus for complete beginners/ more experienced crafters ………..this is what we have come up with…

Mini workshop 1: Liberty print fabric beaded necklace or bracelet

Mini workshop 2: Kilt pin brooch using vintage linens and fabrics

Mini workshop 3: Simple Vintage Peter Pan collar

More details on each workshop to come in a seperate post.

We have made them all suitable for both total beginners to more experienced people of all ages, especially suitable for children. Come and sit a while and sew whilst you soak up the atmosphere of the fair. Why not get a cuppa and a slice of cake from the pop-up tea rooms too?  Come and channel your inner seamstress!

    Really disappointed that I didn’t see anything locally about this Pop-up event until after it had happened.

      Sorry you didn’t hear about it, maybe you should let Kelly at Belle’s Events know as she’d probably appreciate the feedback? She assured all the stall holders that she has done lots of adverising and leafleting etc.
      We at Make had shared it lots on our fb page and also mentioned it on our new summer leaflet which is put up at lots of diff locations around Horsham? x
