Full steam ahead at Dizzy Miss James

It has been a busy few weeks here at DMJ headquarters.  I have been burning the midnight oil and hitting the tea hard to get all my cushions ready for Christmas. I am still really snowed under but thought I'd give you an update on how things are going.
I have been working on a new monochrome screen printed Mr Panda cushion and was super excited to be able to introduce him to my store this November.



As a result I have had a busy few days sewing on labels but managed to have a little fun with some of the photos getting all cosy in my pile of Pandas!

As well as pandering to Mr Panda's every need I have been getting my stock ready for the launch of Whosit&Whatsit an exciting new shop on Newcastle Quayside. They will be stocking some of my cushions and I cannot wait to see them alongside some of the amazing designers they have lined up to showcase their products in store.

In between the making madness I some how managed to find the time to take Dizzy Miss James on the road.  I spent a lovely weekend with my stall at the stunning Belsay Hall.  I had a great time and met some talented traders Joia Glass, Muddy Fingers Pottery and Grand Bazaar.  I ate great homemade cuisine and picked up a few bargains of my own.  It was definitely worth it all even just for the wonderful setting of Belsay gardens, complete with autumnal leaves and peasants galore, not to mention the Heritage Mead!
After a busy weekend I am resting, trying to recover for my next stall at the Alternative Christmas Market in Jesmond on the 22nd of November. Really looking forward to it as it is a great chance to get ethical, fair trade, upcycled, locally sourced & charitable goods.
