New season ideas

Joanne Ray

Last Sunday I visited CHSI Stitches at the NEC in Birmingham.  It is Europe's No.1 creative craft trade show and the perfect opportunity to catch up with all the leading fabric manufacturers and see first hand their new collections.  Among my favourites were Lewis & Irene  www.lewisandirene.com and their Island Girl collection.  The Craft Cotton Company  www.craftcotton.com were causing quite a stir with their Peter Rabbit range but the product licensing issues are such a headache for a small manufacturer.  Also Makower UK  www.makoweruk.com .  The show was packed demonstrating how popular crafting is in the UK.  Back to the...


Merry Christmas

Joanne Ray

The bunting has all been sold and I can now concentrate on preparing for a big family Christmas.  Thank you to everybody for all of your support this year and if you have bought bunting I hope you are displaying it proudly.  There will be plenty of excitement early in the New Year as I launch new lines and some crazy new fabrics.  But until then, have a great Christmas and a happy New Year.   Joanne.


The season to be jolly

Joanne Ray

In our modern lives we probably don't "deck the halls with boughs of holly" but here at The Bunting Basket we have come up with the next best thing.  We have launched four fabulous strings of Christmas bunting; in red we have scandi fabric featuring penguins, polar bears or reindeer and for those of you who like a more contemporary feel we have the scandi reindeer in grey.  Hurry because they are selling out fast. News also of more events, I am at the Market Lavington Christmas Fair on Saturday 12th November.  Please drop by and say hello.   Joanne....


Update for October

Joanne Ray

Halloween bunting now available

Joanne Ray

Time marches on and, although the temperature is warm and the humidity high, I can tell with the mist and damp in the mornings that the seasons are changing.  Today I added some new strings to the site under the halloween theme.  If you want one hurry because I am sure they will not last until the 31st of October.   Also to start the season of craft fairs you can see me in person at the Henley Show on Saturday 10th September.  This is their 125th anniversary and there will be loads to see.  I will be in the...
