The Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard

Our first time at the Oak Fair and what a lovely day! A field full of true craftspeople and interested, informed visitors enjoying the stunning scenery and atmosphere of this beautiful place. We would have loved to have been able to look around the Fair ourselves, but were kept very busy for the whole time. We missed the display of items made from the oak felled during the Fair last year which was a shame, but did manage to find a restored antique upholstery hammer - perfect for Danish cord nails!

Already looking forward to next year.......

Blogging at last.

Where to begin! After years of pontification, the decision has finally been made to start a blog of the Former Glory Seat Weaving life, which turned out to be easier to do than I had expected, (so far - I'm not holding my breath.....yet). As time goes by we'll do our very best to give you our news and hopefully a bit of an insight into how our world works. I'll apologise in advance for this, our world will probably seem a bit odd to some folks - as my friend put it, "who names a truck Bernard?"

We did - and a very fine truck he is too!
