Carolyn's Crafty Creations - I have been crafting for many years for my own pleasure but now I want to
share my crafty creations with you. I work with all types of materials and use many techniques. - I love
working with felt, which I use for my needle cases, scissor holders and decorated tape measures.
I decorate candles, both traditional and battery operated LED candles.
I always have something on my knitting needles, baby booties, hats, gloves, scarves even bags.
Another passion is covering notebooks, using tweeds, cottons and silk then adding embellishments.
I never know what I’ll be doing next, so you are never quite sure what will be on my stall. I will be at Paxton House once a month but please contact me via Facebook to check dates.

Ginger House Flowers/Garden - artisan flowers grown in Northumberland. Ginger House Garden we grow and harvest a wealth of flowers and foliage, offering our customers an alternative to flown in flowers and instead returning to the cottage garden style. We work in harmony with the seasons to produce an abundance of fresh flowers full of colour and scent. We are very much a family business and the flower fields are the centre of our smallholding on the English/Scottish border. With the Cheviot Hills on one side and the Tweed Valley on the other, it is easy for us to take inspiration from the natural world around us. Ginger House Garden is part of an increasing number of flower farms up and down the country growing beautiful fresh flowers, as the demand for British cut flowers increases. We are proud to be part of a move away from the mass of imported flowers towards a want for home-grown, seasonal blooms. Locality, authenticity and provenance are key to all that we do on the farm.
