Website - BellaCrafts in Hampshire for their
Autumn Festival weekend.
Visiting the girls at their wonderful craft barn has been something I've wanted to do since meeting them a couple of years ago and to be invited to teach was a real honour.They run a whole array of classes, activities and parties for all ages, it's a wonderful atmosphere and everyone made me feel so welcome.
I always love to meet new crafters and share my passion for craft.
I was able to combine the weekend with meeting up with some best friends too, arriving early on Friday I had lunch at the garden centre with a friend who lives locally.
We were then able to mooch around BellaCrafts, have tea and cake in the afternoon and unload my stuff ready for Sat.
I was booked in to a lovely hotel for the evening so once leaving I got settled there and had a lovely meal and a glass of Rose, thinking to myself how very fortunate I am to be doing a job I love that I have created from a lifetime passion of crafting.
Time to join in some of the make and takes on arrival and a relaxing coffee before setting up for my first class which was this Christmas House.
I taught the techniques for decorating the house and making and assembling the elements that filled it and completed the scene.
I was also joined by best friends Angela and Selina who also have their own craft businesses and after we packed up on Saturday it was back to Angela's for a lovely takeaway and a bottle of fizz to celebrate all the wonderful things we are experiencing with our work and achievements.
We had so much to talk about!
I stayed at Angela's on Saturday and after going out for coffee with her it was time to make my way home.
A truly wonderful weekend and lots of happy memories, thank you all
Love and crafty hugs xXx
