It’s Good to be Creative

I love a bit of statistics. The only thing missing from the Department for Culture, Media & Sport’s recent press release, Creative Industries worth £8million an hour to UK economy, is a visually appealing graph.

I can’t wait for their new website design to be applied to our pesky tax return forms. Speaking of which, online returns are due at the end of January. Have you filled yours in? Lois Addy’s UK Tax for Small Crafting Business Series is a great place to start if you’re filling in the form for the first time. If you’re really struggling though, Lois points out “there is no substitute for taking paid for professional advice specific to your circumstances”.

Good luck with your creative endeavours during 2014. Hope you’ll join us for our first market of the year, 1st February in the Grainger 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.
