A fun weekend...

A big thanks to everyone who came down to The Paintworks on Sunday and bought some of our wares on wheels. Attended by Tinker Taylor Textiles, As The Crown Flies and All Creature Great and Sewn, although it was a long day we managed to keep it going- sewing new hat designs, printing bags with new stamps and crocheting lions.
We also had our fair share of dramas with Janet letting out an ear piercing scream as a child when careering into her bike knocking it over, Jess managed to catch it before it had a domino effect and the calm was returned after many giggles and stomch aches from laughing!

Roll on the next event...

A Few Pictures Wouldn't Go Amiss!!

Well, having had a look through the posts there seems to a lack of pictures of the group as a whole so I thought I'd add some...
Bristol Cycle Festival in Queens Square
The Tobacco Factory
At Colston Hall in the Glorious Sunshine!
But sometimes it rains and we have brollys! Like on The Christmas Steps in Dec 2010!

But we've got each other and so we have a good time (cheesy or what haha!)

Wanna Peddle YOUR Wares on Wheels?

We are always looking for new "basketeers" to join us. If you have a bike and make something beautiful with your own hands then you would fit right in.

Using your bike is a great way to sell your handmade goodies at local markets and fairs- you just need to use your imagination on how to display- baskets, trays, boards, bits of tents, ribbons and strings, mats next to bikes all have been used to display goods and all equally good.

And best of all you can roll up with your goods (quite literally) and then roll right away again, none of that trying to find a parking space and unload the car while you try and avoid getting a ticket!

We have some exciting events in the pipeline and have a pitch booked for the Paintworks fair on March 13th with space for one poss. 2 more bikes if you would like to come and join us?!

Email Jess at if you're interested.
