Counting down to Northern Craft

With Northern Craft a week today I thought i'd get excited with a look back at all the goodies I got from their Summer Fair.

In August my friend Jessica and I paid a visit to the Northern Monk Refectory in Leeds for Northern Craft after missing the April event.  A brewery with a tap room full of great beers, amazing food trucks and a room of incredible independent crafters, what more could you want?

With it being the weekend before my birthday I treated myself to a few bits after a number of loops around the room.

Autumn Wild, Winter Wild & Pages On A Theme Zines from Kristyna Baczynski 
Garden Bird Notebook from Kate Broughton 
'It'll Be Reet' Pin by Kim Lawler, Finest Imagery from Northern Craft's Pin Drop
Mother's Ruin Patch from Hord Co

Mug and 'More Letters of Note' are from Homesense and we picked up the Cloudwater Wit Loral and The Kernel Porter from Little Leeds Beerhouse in the Corn Exchange.

Northern Craft was held in the top floor of Northern Monk's grade II listed home and after treating ourselves we headed down one floor to their tap room to attempt to pick from their sixteen keg lines, 2 cask lines and incredible can and bottle selection.

After a couple of beers we headed down to check out Awesome Merchandise, Leeds merch experts who were screen printing tote bags in the entrance.

Regretfully, we skipped it on the way in thinking oh, it will be fine to do it on the way out. Well, we we're wrong and there was a queue out of the door. So next weekend you will be mine AM x Northern Craft tote!

A week later I caught up with Jessica to find out she'd treated me to the incredible HÔRD hip flask that I had fallen in love with, including my initials on the back. So not only do I have amazing friends but the gin obsession continues and it definitely has my name on it. 

Northern Craft was such a refreshing day full of creativity, craft, talent and passion. I cannot wait for next weekend to see what the talented independents and makers bring to Northern Craft and what comes of the worships. 

Showcasing 35 makers and workshops, who can you not wait to see?
