    Hi, great competition !
    Can you tell us were we can find out more about the Brighton event and if we can participate ? I have a Folksy shop and I live in Brighton so it would be great to take part.
    Thanks !
    Adam :)

    Hi Adam, I just searched for it online as I’m a Folksy seller not far from Brighton either but it looks like they are closed to exhibitors now. Website is here http://www.makerfairebrighton.com/

    Hi Adam, the Maker Faire wrote a blog post for us saying that officially they were closed for applications but that it was still worth contacting them if you were interested in a stall so it’s definitely worth getting in touch with them.

    What a lovely idea, I hope I have enough time to complete something and get it sent off, with hols, children off school and all.

    Sound like such an amazing project and a wonderful prize for the winners.

    Oh I have a couple of ideas already. I put labels on my items – are we allowed to put our shop name name in the design? sign artwork etc…
