Last Minute Craft Show Place!

Last Minute Craft Show Place!

Phew, that was lucky! I snatched myself a last minute place at a local Craft Show in Hebden Bridge Town Hall - this weekend!

It's part of the Hebden Bridge Roots Festival, which is a whole weekend jam-packed full of entertainment. 

So, if you are thinking of popping up/over/round to Hebden Bridge this weekend, do come and see my stall at the Town Hall.

Wonderful Styled Photo Shoot

styled tour de france inspired fashion photo

The famous Tour De France is making it's way to Yorkshire, this year, and by 'eck we are all excited about it, as it will be passing through Hebden Bridge on the way up Cragg Road (the longest hill climb in Britain)!

Inspired by this, a group of talented Hebden Bridge creatives, local businesses and an amazing photographer came together to bring a bit of glamour to the proceedings with a styled photo shoot influenced by the 1949 film 'A Boy, A Girl and a Bike'. Starring the epitemy of glamorous British actresses of the day, Diana Dorrs and Honour Blackman, the story was set in Yorkshire, and was about a the classic love triangle story, set against a backdrop of fabulous local landscape with a local cycling club.

There are many beautiful photos from the day, which was what turned out to be a glorious sunny early March day (we were very lucky!).

You can see the credits of who helped make the day such a success below, and view more pictures in my portfolio

Hebden Bridge Floods

You probably saw the news last weekend about the terrible flooding all along the Calder Valley, where I live and work. Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd were all affected. Many shops and businesses in the towns were devastated by the highest recorded flood water.

Luckily, we are not directly affected, living on a hill, but my daughter's school, a gallery I sell in and the post office I use were all out of action, having had up to 2 feet of dirty flood water coming in. I thought I ought to share some of my pictures of the event. The town really pulled together with an amazing display of community spirit and many shops have managed to reopen, again. It restored faith in human nature!

I want to extend my deepest sympathies to those affected in the area.

The clean up, having kids at home, and lack of a post office for a few days has affected our order processing, but I am happy to say that we have finally caught up again! Customers have been wonderfully kind and patient - I want to say a big thank you!

You can read more about it over on my blog.
