Goodwill to all...

Tangled Snowflake, Timea Sido

As another year of Homeworks draws to a close, it’s time to thank all the designers, artists, makers and small independents that make our Homeworks events so special and unique - you know who you are!

Good wishes and thanks to all of you who shopped with us and supported our fairs in 2012. We’ll be back next year and we hope everyone enjoys their Homeworks goodies under the tree. x
