  1. Chandler's Country Gifts has been through a significant change since I first set up the website. As I work on my own I made the decision to specialise in just one of my favourtie products - Fabric Noticeboards. I have always loved working with fabric and thoroughly enjoy searching for beautiful designer material, so I combined it with a passion for crafting to bring a quality handmade product, made in the Uk and not mass produced. 

    I love my work and I have spent many hours, evenings, weekends building the website collection and perfecting my work, and recently I felt extremely proud that my Baking Noticeboard had been featured in the BBC Easy Cook Christmas Edition Magazine and it was the BBC Easy Cook favourite too! 

    For 2014 I hope to tempt you with even more new and exciting noticeboards in designs such as cameras, joggers, pancake day and many more! So upon that note I better check  my list  - which is on my noticeboard of course - and see what's next to do.  With best wishes x

  2. What a surprise it was to see the snow this morning! It made Christmas feel even more real as the days are excitedly counted down and it draws closer. Just had to take my little dog, Poppy, to the park. What is it about the snow that makes them so thrilled to run, roll and be more mischievous!

    Chandler's have been busy with the build up of Christmas Fairs and recently attended the Dorking Vineyard Shopfest. A beautiful place that evokes rolling Italian fields, hot summer days and makes you feel you are miles away from anywhere. The Shopfest had a varied mix of stalls ranging from handmade to bought in goods. Customers were plentiful and, as always, it was a pleasure to meet new stallholders and swap our tales.

    The Christmas Craftfest, an online craft fair, has recently taken place and is run by the fantastic ladies on Creative Connection. Lovely to be at home and not to have go out in the cold for this one. A great fair which gives you the chance to meet fellow crafters, link and build up your network and is a great learning curve for anyone. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Osterley House, a National Trust House in London, was our next stop for a weekend-long Craft Fair. A spectacular mansion surrounded by gardens, park and farmland. Carol singers sung in the courtyard and a Ferris wheel delighted the little ones. I shared the Chapel with a group of lovely ladies and had a great weekend with them. Please have a look at their lovely crafts and I am happy to forward their details if you would like any of their work.

    Only one more fair to go, then its shopping, tidying, and preparing for the big day. Chandler's would like to say a big 'thank you' to all their loyal customers. We hope 2013 will be even better and we hope you continue shopping with us as we bring you more lovely gifts for the garden & home.

  3. Cant believe that we are now into November and I have had my first Christmas Fair at Kingston Market House. A fabulous setting where I met some  lovely crafters and customers and would thoroughly recommend. 

    Chandler's is again in the November issue of Field & Rural Emagazine and on Labelnames Christmas Gift List on Facebook. Please have a look if you get the time.

    Preparing for my next Christmas fair and have just made some gorgeous Puddin' Soy Candles, and two new fabric noticeboards, a pretty pink one for a girls bedroom and blue gingham for a boy all will be on the website soon.

  4. Field & Rural Emagazine

    Back from my brisk and  wet morning walk with Poppy to a sit down and a peek at Field and Rural's online magazine. Today, we have been featured in their October edition. Looks good and very pleased - thank you Jane. You can find them at www.fieldandrurallife.com.

    Back to work - sewing new doorstops in my favourite materials, polka dot beige, red and green and ready just in time for Christmas. New products coming soon, dinner party candles in Chandler's quintessentially english style.
