Jules Hogan knitwear – virtual craft fair stall
I’ve been thinking of creative new ways to support our From Britain with Love community through the challenges we are all facing right now. So many makers and growers have seen their normal places of business simply disappear overnight. All craft fairs and farmer’s markets are cancelled for the forseeable future. Which means that makers have shelves full of the lovely products they’d been making for months now. Ahead of setting off around the country to sell them at fairs and markets. Growers are hitting flower season but with no weddings or flower workshops booked.
So… I thought we would create our own virtual market place for the businesses who list in our directory. Where we share photos of their latest creations so that you can connect with one another. Buy from them online. It’s the next best thing to meandering around a craft fair or market, wandering over to the stalls that catch your eye for a closer look.
We are starting with the very lovely Jules Hogan who has kindly agreed to help us trial the idea.
So here are Jules’ photos of what she would be arranging on her stall for you to enjoy today…
