The Morningside Makers Market in Edinburgh this Sunday

What a busy month it has been. November is looking even busier with three upcoming events.
You can find me this Sunday 2nd November at The Morningside Makers Market in Edinburgh. 11 - 4pm.


I have been doing my best to keep stock levels up so that I can bring my full Aileen Clarke Crafts range to all the events I am exhibiting at.

New this week are all these pendants, earrings, bracelets. and rings


Pendants £24



Rings £18



Bracelets £20



Dainty Circles £20
Larger Circles £24

I have quite a few brooches in stock just now including these Purple Felt Ivy Leaves.

Brooches £12



I also have three new original felt landscapes available.


The Crofter's Land
£75


Sheep Among The Furrows
£75


Deep Heather Hills

Everything above is also available through my Etsy shop as well but may not still be available after my fair on Sunday.



I completely sold out of my Textile Trinket Boxes last week but I will have more for Sunday. I have quite a few orders for them as well but hope to
 have some available for general sale next week.

The smallest box measures 5 x 5 x 5 cm at £28
The next size up is 7 x 7 x 7 cm at £32
A 10 x 6 cm box costs £40 and I do a larger 12 x 7 cm one at £45

October Update


What a busy month so far and it's only the 6th!
Falkland Craft Market on Saturday was a great success, really busy with lots of people coming from afar just for the fair.
I was pleased with my stall as although I had just as much stock as usual, it all seemed to fit better and I sold some of everything so nothing was being over looked or not seen.

I spent last week making, making, making with the result that although I sold a lot, I have plenty left over to stock up my Etsy shop.






I have three of these cuffs for sale at £12 each. They are made using my own handmade felt. Lots of rich texture and colour make each one unique. They are also comfortable to wear and light weight too.


I made this Trinket Box from the same panel of felt. It measures 10 x 0 x 6 cm. The big heart charm helps keep the lid closed.
£38


I love these Felt Heart Pendants and wear one myself at every opportunity.
£24 each complete with chain and voile gift bag.



My Treble Clef Tweed Heart Brooches have been very popular and are great fun to make. I love choosing the colours and seeing them all together like this.
I only have one of each colour above available this week. £12 each. I will be making more for my next events though.

I have lots of new printed cards in stock. All are available individually and some in sets of four or six.


Set of six printed cards £12


Set of Four Printed Cards £8


One thing I am really short of just now is original felt pictures. I sold quite a few last month and have only had time to make a couple recently.

This picture below is a composition I have been wanting to try for a long time. I had the frame left over from Open Studios and I'm really pleased with the way it has turned out.
I'm planning to have Bookmarks made from prints of the design.


'Ard Beag' meaning Small Rise
£95 Framed

All of the above are available in my Etsy shop here 

Below is a new line that I am hoping to make available soon. It's a printed cushion featuring one of my felt landscapes. As with all my printed products, the quality of the print shows up the fibres and stitches used in the original picture, making it hard to tell that it is a print.
If I go ahead with this idea, the cushions will be available to order online only. I won't actually have any cushions in stock. You will be able to choose your design for the back and front, choose the size and fabric and have them sent directly to you from the company that makes them. You can also have them sent as a gift which is a great idea.
