Village Fair at the Southbank Centre
This weekend something very fun is happening at the Southbank Centre. They are hosting a quintessential Village Fair with stalls, games, crafting and lots more to celebrate community and bringing people together to share their passions. I am pretty excited, because I'm going to be there with some other lovely ladies on the craft blogger's stall! Instead of selling our crafts, we will be directing people to the tutorials that will show people how to make them themselves. We will also be answering questions, blogging on the go and just generally chatting to people, so it will be a lot of fun!
In response to the Village Fair, bloggers across the UK are posting a collective virtual stall showcasing a selection of craft tutorials (above). The Tutorial Stall shares one favourite tutorial link from each of the bloggers and helps to celebrate the community of craft blogging and the role of the internet in craft revival. Here are the links to all these wonderful tutorials from the stall, enjoy...
