Good start at Sprout Arts

Phew! It’s been a busy start for our sale and exhibition at Sprout Arts in Streatham.

On two of the four days that we’ve been open so far, Carol has been running workshops, on making felt slippers and Indian appliqué and embroidery.


My scarves have sold well, especially the arashi ones – I sold out on the first two days and had to make some more on Friday! Here’s a happy customer, Jane, who bought the first one – a perfect match for her sweater!


We also had a visit from a real woman of the cloth (vicar with dog collar) – we thought she’d come to scold us for being imposters! 😉 But she was very nice, and bought one of my scarves.

At the end of today Carol and I had to remove some of our items for our stall at the Garden Museum tomorrow – are we mad trying to do two sales at the same time?

Then it’s back to Sprout until 10 December, with another couple of markets after that. I’ll definitely need Christmas recover!
