The Craft Fair yesterday in Armadale, Isle of Skye was a big success: well organised and attended. The many stalls offered high quality products. It was a pleasure to be part of it!

Favourites on my Willow Weaving stall were the logbaskets (I sold all 3) and the rustic baskets made with a variety of willow cropped in my garden in Sallachy. See photo.

Many people showed interest in the courses I offer in the Local Learning Centres, so get in touch as soon as possible to reserve a place! For dates and telephone numbers, see last post.
