We are showing in two beautiful houses this year.

Also showing are :
Maika Crampton textiles,
Belen Gomez ceramics,
Vanessa Mooncie knit and crochet jewellery,
Helen Musselwhite paper artist,
Julia Smith ceramics,
Jonathan Williams prints,
Mel Williams cushions and lavender bags
Annabet Wyndham jewellery.
and me, Sarah Young prints, paintings, tea-towels.

A very welcome return of such a positive and lovely house, full of desirables!
 Vanessa's badger in hat brooch is something else, and I especially liked the vintage children's illustration cards. The whole house is very joyful.

 As is Joy's! at The Festive Fox 53 Kingsley Road, Brighton, BN1 5NH.
Lesley Buckingham watercolours
Carol Butler hand embroidery
Joy Fox button jewellery and textile work
Victor Stuart Graham marine assemblages and houses
Sarah Lock lamps and shades
Sarah Young prints, paintings, tea towels and little heads.

Carol Butlers embroideries are so beautiful, especially the bird's nest.
I invigilated yesterday and it was such a pleasure to just be in such a lovely house. Fairy lights illuminate the fig tree in the night garden, with the railway beyond. We are very lucky to have friends in Brighton who let us show work in this way.
