The sun shone and we had a wonderful time meeting great potters and so many nice people who share an interest in all things pottery! And we sold AliMac aprons to such a range of people for all their creative endeavours. Britain is alive with creative energy.
And a big thank you to my lovely Mac for all his help, support and enthusiasm! We had 3 great days.
Next events are at Wardlow Mires in Derbyshire, www.potsandfood.co.uk 8th and 9th September and then at the Sheffield Ceramics Festival on 22nd and 23rd September in the Meersbrook Walled Garden, Sheffield.www.sheffieldceramicsfestival.com/
Trying out a more swinging style: Japanese cross back aprons. One size fits all!
Comfortable and easy to wear with 2 big side pockets for all those essentials or just looking cool.
More fabrics will be coming on line so visit my Etsy shop.
They will be on sale at www.earthandfire.co.uk/ the International Ceramics Fair at Welbeck, Nottinghamshire on 22nd to 24th June 2018.
COME AND SEE ME!!!!
From Wednesday 14th March AliMac aprons will be available to see and buy at 'RooM', interior design on Abbeydale Road, Sheffield, UK.
The shop is open Wednesday to Saturday. I will have a range of styles and sizes for you to try. Please get in touch if you want something specific or visit my sales page on Etsy.
RooM Interiors roominteriorssheffield.com/ on Abbeydale Road, Sheffield now stocks AliMacDesignsUK aprons in 3 distinct styles- plain, split skirt and the new Japanese cross over back.
I dusted down my Grandma's attache case (c.1940's) and loaded it with some of my latest art and split skirt aprons to make a quick film for Instagram. It has had more hits than hot dinners this year. Take a look...
This year starts well with 60 Etsy sales and twelve 5* reviews! All quite remarkable as I stumbled into this through the collision of change, chance and opportunity. Evidently, I am an 'older-preneur' and I wear the badge with amused pride.
Anyway, the hot news is I have 'start-up' trader stall at the International Earth and Fire Ceramics Fair on 22nd -24th June at Wellbeck, Notts, UK. www.earthandfire.co.uk/ This is very exciting and I am very honoured. On 8th and 9th September I will be at the Pots and Food Festival at Wardlow Mires, Derbyshire which is a fabulous collection of potters and culinary creatives selected by Pat Fuller. It is such a warm and uplifting gathering of people in the heart of the country - a grand day out. Check it out and hope to see you there! www.potsandfood.co.uk/
And here's a picture of the latest AliMacdesignsUK. It's snowing outside but I hope you are cosy and enjoying the New Year!
Thank you for stopping by!
This has been an year of transformation - setting up as an Etsy trader. From June to date my AliMacDesignsUK site on Etsy has had 1,464 visits with 4,519 page views resulting in 47 order of over 50 products. Recent purchases have been Scotland, New York, Belgium and the Netherlands.
I have had some good conversations across the Etsy-sphere and feel connected to fellow fabric connoisseurs and creatives across the globe. Over the holiday break I will be thinking through and making a BESPOKE reversible apron for a client 'across the water'. I will enjoy putting that unique piece together knowing it is going to a good home!
Have a lovely Christmas.
Christmas wrapping service!
For £5 you can have your apron wrapped in a Christmassy TEA TOWEL and cellophane!
It can be sent direct to your recipient with a message of good cheer. How cool is that?
Groovy and crazy creative print in Java wax! Some exciting aprons will be coming to the Etsy shop soon. Get in touch if you need a bespoke apron just for you.
It's exciting to connect with people around the world who share a passion and excitement about vibrant fabric. Wearing this energising fabric makes you feel creative - be it in the kitchen, studio or workshop! AliMac has reached Japan, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Vouvray, en France!
