I know it's a little early to start banging on about Christmas already but I know those organised folk out there will be quietly planning, writing out their shopping lists and penciling in their festive activities!

I bloody love Christmas even when it is knocking on your door in September and this year we're decidedly joyous about exhibiting at our first Christmas Fair! Bring on the dried orange slices and homemade stockings! I've been to the Country Living Christmas Fair on many occasions, only as a visitor and I’m thrilled to be holding a stall there this year after our success at the Spring Fair back in March. This is cracking event with lots of beautiful Christmas Shopping ideas from unique makers and designers all over the UK. And who really needs anymore excuses to head to London for a bit of Christmas shopping!

We are bringing lots of lovely new things too. In the Highland Fling design we have a cute new set of four espresso cups in a gift box, as well as all the other most popular pieces form the collection. We’ll also be bringing some festive gifts from the Yuletide Sleighride collection and lots of stocking filler ideas in other deisgns. And the brand new Pretty Retro collection will be making it’s first outing after having only just arrived in stock.

We also have a new selection of products being made especially for the show – we have teamed up with The Stamford Notebook Company to make some stunning new hand-bound, cloth-covered notebooks in three different Katie Alice designs. The Stamford Notebook Company are a mere 5 minutes down the road from where I live and it’s from there that they make each and everyone of their superb notebooks! It’s a real privilege for me to be able to work with such a local company to create these beautiful new products and I’m positively giddy about launching them at the Christmas Fair!

There will be a range of three sizes available as plain notebooks and as 2016 diaries and they will be available in Highland Fling, English Garden and the new Pretty Retro print.


The Fair runs from November 11th to the 15th with a late night shopping evening on Thursday and is at teh Busniess Design Center in trendy Isslington. You’ll be able to find us on stand VG32 – in fact you probably won’t miss us as we are pretty much one of the first as you walk in.
