Christmas Open Night 2014

Saturday, November 8, 2014
Hello Everyone.

Well I'm currently sat at my desk in the workshop, totally exhausted. We (Dad, my sister and I) just finished tidying up the shop and getting it back to a reasonable shade of 'normal' after the party last night.
It was our annual Christmas Open Night at the farm, and this years was bigger and better than ever. We have the addition of two new retail units selling things, so there was plenty to see.

As per usual Mum had made a cauldron of Mulled Wine which had been bubbling away for an hour or two before, filling the shop with amazing Christmassy scents. My sister had made her famous mince pies and gingerbread. And the Christmas decs, trees and lights were all along the shop fronts.

It was a lovely evening, but was also quite sad for me as I knew it was my last Christmas event down at the farm. I will miss everyone down here, from the owners to the other units that I've become so close to. It was a very enjoyable evening though, so I know I'll never forget it. It's onwards and upwards to the next stage of Jessalli.

My amazing friends

I have loads of orders to get on and complete now, so I'm looking forward to a very busy few weeks coming up. Gingerbread Mary and Joseph were popular! So they were very happy :) Reindeer Bunting also went down a storm, as did my new Christmas Cards, so thank you all for your purchases.

The Christmas Tree ready to welcome everyone

The HUGE raffle prizes now have winners, so we will call you soon and then we'll post it on Facebook and Twitter for everyone to be super jealous! hehe. All hampers have a collection of gifts and vouchers from every unit! So if you do get one, we hope you love and enjoy it!

The shop ready for you all to arrive.

Well I know I've said it, but I'll say it again, THANK YOU! It means so much to us all for you to come and enjoy these events with us, and see what we do. I hope you will continue your amazing support when I move after Christmas. I am looking forward to all the new adventures we'll have next year, but for now I'm still here and will be right up to Christmas. 

If you do want to stay in touch with all the new things we'll be doing, workshops, events, catalogues, fairs, offers, then do email us your address and details so we can keep you up to date.

Happy Handmade everyone!
