In the last week I have had the pleasure to receive two lots of quality quilt pics. At the brilliant Best of Britannia at the beginning of October http://bestofbritannia.com/ there was an opportunity to utilise the skills of photographer Annalisa Bruno http://www.annalisabruno.com/ to have some professional shots taken of our Quilts by Lisa Watson stand.
And in anticipation for the forthcoming Home Is In The North Christmas Spectacular on Saturday 15th November at Halle St Peter’s http://www.eventsbythesocialbutterfly.com/ there was a homely photo shoot Mancunian style last week.
Quilts noughts and crosses?

Cosying Up Your Home for Autumn
Goodness, a week ago today we were all setting up our stands for GNCCF (short for Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair) at Old Granada studios in Manchester’s city centre in readiness for the preview night. Here is a snapshot from GNCCF that ran from 9-12th October:
Lots and lots more amazing makers were showcased at GNCCF14 To find out more visit http://www.greatnorthernevents.co.uk/homepage-gnccf.aspx#.VD-vehY09MQ

I had the best time at BoB14 last week held for the third year in the iconic Farmiloe Building in EC1M, a stone’s throw from Smithfield Market! The combination of quality British goods and a unique space with excellent catering as well as lots of live music just made the event fizz throughout the three days.
Best day for Quilts by Lisa Watson was Saturday 4th as The Farmiloe was just so busy and lively. I had lots of great conversations with visitors and I really appreciated all the quilt compliments. Thank you to my new customers and hello to all my new twitter buddies. Such a shame The Farmiloe is being turned into office space and access to this iconic building will now be restricted. The challenge now for the BoB team is to find an equally impressive venue and line-up for next years event. Watch this space! http://bestofbritannia.com/
