Helmshore Textile Museum Christmas Fair

Bonker*s Clutterbucks had a stall at Helmshore Textile Museum today at the annual Xmas craft fair. This years theme was Victorian so Peter and I dressed accordingly sporting two handlebar moustaches. Peter went as a sweep, Kate as a pickpocket and Heidi as Florence Nightingale (Florrie was at Brownie camp but the school bear was visiting for the weekend in honour of Heidi’s birthday).

We had another very successful fair with lots of interest in our hot air balloon kits and range of goodies. Chatted to some amazing crafters and customers, heard the school choir singing in the weaving shed, little guys got to sit on Father Christmas’s knee and we caught up with a pal visiting from Oz. A good day all round followed by our first snowfall of the season brrrrr it’s cold!

T’is the season to be jolly

We have been madly making, up-cyling and sourcing out an abundance of goodies for lots of Christmas fairs that we’re taking part in this year. Here’s a selection of some of our goodies.
