PaperPhine at the Selvedge Christmas Fair
PaperPhine at the Selvedge Christmas Fair 2011
We definitely had a blast at the Selvedge Christmas Fair in London on December 10!
PaperPhine’s Linda went there with two huge bags filled to the brim with our paper twines, paper yarns and some paper yarn jewelry and luckily the British airport workers didn’t go on strike when the plane from Vienna arrived (only the days before and the days afterwards…). The ladies from Selvedge were lovely and the organization perfect – not to mention the setting in the Old Church Hall with lots of style and flair. The walls were completly covered in Nantes fabric by Lewis&Wood that you can also see in the background of our pictures. It was wonderful to meet a lot of other sellers and passionate craftspeople with a special fondness for textiles (you can find a full list of sellers here and it’s really nice to have a look at their websites in case you missed them on the fair). And the customers and people who came by to have a chat were incredible – thanks to them we not only sold well and think about going to the fair again next year but we also got a lot of input and new ideas to take back to the studio in Vienna. Thanks again to everybody!
The one thing we did not quite manage was to take along a big camera as well. Sorry for the not quite so good pictures of the PaperPhine stall.
