Last blog post of the year 2020. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me this year. S-A-L-E.
My containers are full of things to sell in this hugely productive year. It is hard enough to work in a vacuum as a sole trader. Harder still thanks to Covid 19 that has robbed us all of travel and exploration. Being a very self reliant, self motivated person, I can cope with being alone and illness has often meant that I could not travel. However, when you work so hard, it is so difficult when few respond to your work or even know about you. Instagram has been a big help on that score. At least more people have seen my work this year than probably ever before. The survival instinct is strong. I want to continue to be an independent artist.
I guess I just need to perfect the art of living on next to nothing. Oh wait, I have been for the past ten years. Unfortunately my business is impacted by Brexit as I have the choice to either register for VAT in an EU country or not to sell to the 27 countries in the EU. It’s going to be a small world, a shrinking market. This is your chance to diminish my stack of goods ready for sale, so that I can launch into 2021. N.B. Order by 31st December 2020 if you are in the EU.
Craft and Textile Supplies Big Discounts
The following products are reduced to the price I paid for them wholesale, just to claw back the money and investment. If you want a smaller quantity than a metre, I am willing to discuss. These are great for innovative and experimental textiles, but rather boring on the photography side, so I have included a picture of what you can make instead. Clicking on the product name takes you straight to the product page on my website. If you are interested in a mixed selection of A4 sheets, let me know.
