A Festive Gift from…Pomelo Crafts

Today’s interview is with the talented Pomelo Crafts, who took part in our last fair. A true Patcham crafter Pomelo crafts are based just minutes from our fair venue. Pomelo Crafts make items that are pretty but useful and affordable at the same time. Plenty of festive gifts and stocking fillers to be found, especially for those with children! Find out more…

“I loved the last fair! Such a lovely atmosphere and lots of talented people…”- Lynn, Pomelo Crafts

Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

Well, I live in Brighton with my husband and 2 little girls. I do have a day job, but I love to sew on the side. I started sewing a lot more when I was on maternity leave with my 2nd daughter, as I wanted to make things I needed but couldn’t find in the shops. I then started making these as presents for my friends and Pomelo Crafts was born. I now make lots of other things….coin purses, Kindle cases, tote bags, phone sleeves, iPad cases…

What festive gifts and creations will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?

I will be bringing lots of lovely coin purses, kindle cases, ipad cases, phone sleeves, funky bibs for babies, make-up bags. I’ve also just made some lovely fabric gift bags in various sizes which are great for adding that something extra to a gift you’re giving. The small ones are just the right size to put some chocolates in and hang on your Christmas tree.

You took part in our last Fairy Tale Fair, did you enjoy it and did you find your creations were popular with visitors?

I loved the last fair! Such a lovely atmosphere and lots of talented people. I think my coin purses and bibs were probably most popular.

Will you be taking part in other events over the festive period (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

Not sure yet. There’s a couple I still might do.

We are looking forward to having Pomelo Crafts at the fair again! You can find out more on their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pomelocrafts
