Vlog : Hillary’s Craft Event in Brighton


On Saturday I went to the Hillary’s Craft Event in Brighton. It’s been six months since my last blogging get together and during that time I’ve learned a huge amount about the importance of meeting people face to face. So after missing out on Blogfest last month (should have bought a ticket!) I was thrilled to have the chance to spend the afternoon in Brighton doing crafty stuff and putting real faces to profile images.

It was also a brilliant excuse to play around with some of my video kit and produce some content for my new YouTube channel (more of that in a sec)

The event was overseen by Kirsty of Make Do & Trend who talked us through making no-sew bunting (which looks great by the way) and fabric Christmas baubles with a pattern based around the Cathedral Windows quilt square. Even though I didn’t finish my bauble (I was too busy eating cake!) it was great to see how the pattern comes together, as it’s something I’ve always been rather terrified of doing with quilts.

If you want to see what the afternoon was like (and how amazingly lovely Brighton looked on a sunny day in November) check out the video below and please subscribe to my channel. I think 2015 is going to be a very exciting year for vlogging, so I’ve jumped on the bandwagon.

I’m aiming to produce a couple of vlogs a month, so don’t worry, you won’t be swamped if you subscribe…
