Due to the cancellation of our Christmas market this is now our final market of the year. We’re looking forward to dressing up and sharing our lovely work with you all.

Market Day – April 2014

Some lovely folk and lovely things at our last market.

I also managed to spot Jessica Catherine‘s porcelain flowers unglazed. I love seeing things in progress. They do look unusual when naked.

You might have spotted us on ezebee last week. We’re thrilled to be featured in their magazine. You can give the article a read here: The monthly Make and Mend Market: a handmade medley in Newcastle UK.

Our next market is on the 3rd May in the Grainger Market.

We’ve also got a special market coming up in Whitley Bay Library on the 24th May. Make & Mend Fictional Worlds Market.

 

Make & Mend 1950s Special – A review in photos.

We had a fantastic time last Saturday. Joining in with the Grainger Market’s October Festival, 1950’s themed celebrations. It might have been a little cold for some of our dresses but we had a grand time all the same. We love a good excuse to dress up.

Did you take some photos at our market? We’d love you to share them.

As if that bit of excitement wasn’t enough we got a wonderful write up on F6.Studios blog for our October event and a lovely piece in November’s The Crack, giving readers a run down of our upcoming markets and our wonderful stallholders.

What’s that? Upcoming markets?

Why yes. Our Christmas market is the next up and final for this year, on Saturday 14th December at the Star and Shadow Cinema. Our next few blog posts will be introducing you to some of the wonderfully talented stallholders joining us for this year’s Christmas shindig. So, keep your eyes peeled. If you’re the Facebook type we have an event set up, please join and invite your gang. There’ll be festive tunes (and not so festive ones too to keep it interesting) and mince pies to warm you through. See you there folks.
