Today we hear from Calico and Cotton, a talented mother and daughter crafty team! We look forward to welcoming to the fair and think their items are well suited for our theme…
“We love making custom pieces, it gives us a chance to explore new things. There is an endless road to what you can make. We love it!”- Becky, Calico and Cotton
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
We are a Mother and Daughter team, who have a passion for the Atrs and Crafts. I am married and a mother of two beautiful, cheeky boys. My Mum, who lives with my Dad and my younger Brother, works full time as a teaching assisstant. We make handmade gifts and homeware decorations, including Rag Dolls, Bunting, Childrens Fabric Pictures, Knitted Toys and Vintage Jewellery.

Most of our work is childrens based. We have a unquie style with hints of Traditional, Folk and Vintage showing in our work.
How long have you been making your craft items?
We started pulling ideas together and started creating in Feb 2012.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
At the moment our best sellers are the Set of Three Bathrooms Pictures and the Fairy Castle Picture.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
The best thing is thinking of an idea and actully putting it altogether and seeing the end result. We love making custom pieces, it gives us a chance to explore new things. There is an endless road to what you can make. We love it!
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
We have only been to one other fair, which was the Brighton Art and Craft Fair.
What items and festive gifts will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?
We will be selling Rag Dolls, Childrens Fabric Pictures, Christmas Tree Decorations, Bunting, Knitted Animals, Vintage Jewellery and a few other items aswell.
