This new year has brought great joy, welcoming my first grandson into the world. Here he is only 3 weeks old visiting the legendary Grindleford Cafe, Derbyshire. I think he is eyeing up the enormous chip butty and pint of tea I've got lined up.
I've been busy making new stock!
Put 24th November in your diary for the Sheffield MILLENNIUM GALLERY Christmas Craft Market.
I'll be there with a range of dazzling fabrics and prices range from £23 to £45.
Then on 1st, 2nd December AliMacDesigns aprons will be at the Sheffield Etsy Made Local event in the superb CUTLERS' HALL which is an historic treat in itself!
And if you are not lucky enough to be nearby then have a look on my SHOP and it will take you to my latest Etsy stock. Best wishes to you, Alison.xx
I really think so! Here we go with Japanese style aprons!
They are practical, easy to wear and light up any place you want to be - kitchen, workshop or garden! So get over to my Etsy page to check out the latest!
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!
