It's November, which means I'm very busy at Bug HQ!  Had a sneaky day off last week to visit the Christmas Hobby & Craft Exhibition at the NEC but other than that I've been very busy with orders and preparations for November events.

Last week I attended a lovely Pamper Evening for the Friends of Trowel School, received a lovely welcome and the ladies transformed the village hall with fairy lights.  On Friday I attended another Pamper evening in aid of the Charity Fairplay, again a friendly group of people with some lovely stalls.....making it an expensive evening!

This week I'm at a Christmas Fair put on by a local Care Home and then the weekend sees me at another local event, at the Hostess.  Sunday I'm at Bawtry, a beautiful market town the event has an emphasis on handmade and has a really diverse range of stalls.

The most popular products this week have been the Christmas Sacks and Bunting Boards and closely followed by the Stockings.

I think the change in the weather has focused everyone's attention on Christmas.  In Bug HQ this week I'll be mainly personalising Christmas Sacks! Several have been ordered already via Facebook. Hopefully they'll be added to the website over the weekend along with the new backpacks.

Most of the Christmas range is already on the website, including the always popular Reindeer Food and Magic Santa Keys.  There will be some more Christmas products added too, so if you haven't already, please like my Facebook Page to get a first glimpse.

A rare weekend off from events but I am attending a Ladies Charity evening in Derby Friday night at the Derby County Cricket in aid of the Laura Centre. So if you are local to Derby then please come along and support it.

This weekend has been a making weekend with the New Reindeer in Personalised Bag occupying most of it!  The week ahead is busy with a visit to a Mansfield Baptist Church Toddler Group on Tuesday, this is where my children went when they were small and I'm always receive such a warm welcome.  The coming weekend sees two more new events too. I'll also be trying to finish the Christmas range......oh and get the new backpacks live on the website.  There might be a sneaky peak of those on Facebook in the next few days.

McMillan, Tractors, Traffic and more!

What a week!  Several days spent this week attending McMillan coffee mornings,  thank you to the wonderful hosts, I'm pleased to say that lots of coffee and cake consumed but lots of money raised too so the cake was justified!  

It was Southwell Plough Match this Saturday too, thank you to all those who patiently queued for up to 4 hours to get in!  I gather that the organisers were limited by the local councils to one entrance which caused a problem or two. This resulted in a very quiet morning and very busy afternoon!  Met some lovely customers and had a great time with the fellow stall holders.

This week is 'Catch up' week with a stack of orders and a deadline of this weekend to launch the Christmas range.........eeekk!

What will the week ahead bring?  Well for me lots of tea & cake!!  September sees the McMillan Coffee Morning campaign and The Fabric Bug, and me personally are delighted to be supporting more than one! It's not just because of the cake that I'm delighted either!  I don't think I know anyone that hasn't been affected by cancer, my family included.  The McMillan coffee mornings are a great way of supporting McMillan nurses but there are also a great opportunity to catch up with friends.

I'll be at Kingsway Hall in Forest Town this Saturday, along with several other crafters. Mon - Thurs, I've been invited in to someone's home, donating a proportion of any profits to McMillan and then on Friday I'm at the John Fretwell Centre at Mansfield Woodhouse for my final slice!

A very busy week !  If you are local the please pop along to any of the events I'm at, or if you know someone hosting a coffee morning then please support them in their fundraising efforts. J x

Somehow we have arrived in September, the children are back at school, autumn is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing.............Christmas is approaching!

Preparations have to begin early in the Fabric Bug but I am running a little behind! 

In the Bug Room this week there has been an explosion of bunnies, the Bunny in Personalised Bag is definitely the most popular make at the moment.  But watch out because a new bunny is appearing soon.

Also this week I'll be making stock for the forthcoming events, Knitting Dolly hobby kits to start and hopefully later in the week finalising the 2013 Christmas range!

This coming weekend The Fabric Bug will be at two events, Saturday at a McMillan fundraiser in Forest Town, a really friendly event with various 'makers' selling and helping raise funds for McMillan, plenty of tea and cake too!  Sunday is a new event and gazebo at the ready!
