Festival of thrift in Darlington

Hi Folks - hows the autumn treating you all?!
The weekend before last I had a run out to Darlington to the Festival of thrift.  This year was its 3rd year and I have to say it was amazing.  I only managed to get over on the Sunday and I had booked 4 1 hour workshops before hand.  Unfortunately as it was my first time there I hadn't realised that there would be so much going on!! So I didn't get to see much by the time that I did my workshops and grabbed a bit of lunch but I have put it in the diary for next year because I really want to do the 2 days next time.   There were so many stalls, activity's, entertainments and loads of workshops it had your head in a spin.  So if you get the chance to go next year guys, I can really recommend it - you will have an amazing time!!!!

Here are the 4 workshops I had a go at.  Check out the links to the wonderful folks facebook pages!!

Adult chocolate workshop with David and Wendy Sanderson of 'Truly Tempting Chocolate'

Needle felted animals with Geraldine of 'Bean Creative'

Collage tree with the artist Suzie Devey

drinks can jewellery with Kathryn guy 

I want to have a go at all of them again so now I just have to find a stall which sells begs of 'spare time' and 'energy' lol!!!

Have a great month everyone!!!!
