UK Events! A Folksy Party

by Folksy Support

We were very excited to see in the UK events forum that Jo Whitehead, the artist behind Folksy shop Glassprimitif had decided to organise and host a Folksy party – we thought it was a great idea. To make sure you all got your invite to Jo’s fair we thought we’d post it here! We’ll post a follow up so you can all see how the fair went – Jo has promised to take lots of snaps for us – Thanks Jo!

A Folksy Party !

When: Saturday 26 June 2010 from 10am to 3pm
Where: The Arts Factory, North Street, Keighley BD21 3DF

I’m really excited about this too…have joined the June Loons daily listing challenge for the first time this month, so I will hopefully have lots of interesting things to bring along. Thanks so much to Jo for organising it!

I so wish this wasn’t a 5 hour drive away! Probably just as well cos there are a few of my favourite Folksy shops here so I’d definitely be parting with a bunch of money. I hope you all have brilliant fun, you’re bound to sell lots. :) Shaz

We also have Swirleyarts (Lynsey) joining us too. It should be quite a party!

Oh, and Kirsten’s going to kill me about that picture of her!

Yes, Jo, I think I might just do that… :)

Should be good laugh, though – looking forward to seeing all you fine Folksters over there!
