How Hill Craft Fair and Open Day

In my last post I mentioned an up coming Craft Fair, and I thought you’d like to know a little more about it.  I appreciate quite a lot of you live a little too far away to pop over to say hello, but if you are in Norfolk it would be lovely to see you!   Kit and I are going to be at How Hill on the Norfolk Broads, sharing a stall at a new Craft Fair which is part of the How Hill Open Day.  It’s during half term on October 31st;  £3 entrance fee but it’s free for children and Friends of How Hill.  The gardens will be open and there will also be cake, plant and produce stalls and a raffle.  It’s a beautiful place to visit, and has been described as ‘the Broads in microcosm’…

    All the very best Penny, sounds like my cup of tea but a wee bit too far to drive. Hopefully one day I shall come and see the pretty Norfolk coast and countryside.
    I’m sure your robins will go down a treat of two, have fun and I hope you get plenty of punters and sales xox P
    ps. Loving Guy Allen’s etchings, beautiful.

    It sounds wonderful. That paperweight is GORGEOUS! And the etchings very delightful – especially the “Daxie and Feather”. Reminds me of a certain dog and feather featured here….

    Good luck with the show. 🙂

    Very tempting! The Horning Walkers are looking forward to seeing you there on our circular walk from Ludham Bridge that day.
