Happy New Year everybody! Thank you so much for all your support last year and what a busy and fun packed year it was too! From the end of participating in the Crafts Councils Hothouse program to curating Plot 9 of Allotment at mac Birmingham, I added another job to my growing list (lecturer at Hereford College of Arts), won a grant to buy a super duper new loom, introduced some new products, picked up some lovely new stockists, handwove 72 scarves in 3 months (phew) and with a team of fantastic interns made rather a lot of lavender bags! 2013 looks set to be another hectic and exciting year . . .
I'm kicking the new year off with a huge sort out and tidy up of the studio before the new loom arrives from America. This includes clearing out a lot of old stock, so there are some fantastic reductions on cushions and the Festival scarves. You can currently buy these direct from the online shop (www.helenfoot.co.uk) or by emailing me your order (firstname.lastname@example.org). But be quick, cushion colourways are one of a kind and I won't be making them again!
You can also help this month by voting for me to win one of the Craft & Design magazine Selected awards. CLICK HERE TO VOTE and then follow the link on the rosette at the bottom of the page.
Also this year: I will be Bubby to Annabel Williams who is taking part in this years Hothouse program, developing lovely woven tweed designs for Millbank & Foot, showing this summer at the Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey and a lot lot more . . .
