I can’t believe it’s been about 3 months since I’ve written anything, where has the time gone?! I have been busy as always, though not as much with my own stuff as I would like. However I have been learning lots by starting an internship with a lovely textile designer called Imogen Heath (her website is here). She also went through the Prince’s Trust Entrepreneur course to launch her business, so it has been very enlightening to work with her in her studio and seeing where I could (hopefully) be in about five years down the track. It’s also certainly encouraging me to try more patterns with watercolours and hand-painted motif, which I have been wanting to use more anyway.
I also went to France to visit Mum and Dad with my boyfriend, James, which was lovely – I wish I had more than just a few days to relax and recuperate in the French countryside! Naturally lots of wine was drunk and food was eaten. Then back to Brighton for a series of Christmas fairs! I think I’ll try and talk about the fairs individually as, good or bad, there was lots to be learnt from being back in the craft market circuit.
For now let me say I want to be much more focussed on making Zoë Charlotte designs bigger and better next year! Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far, I would have given up long ago if not for you.
I’m holding a Christmas sale on my Etsy store until 15th December – 20% off everything on purchases of over £10. I hope you can find some last minute stocking fillers and Christmas goodies! xxx
