The creative talent of Cheshire will be joining together this Spring in a beautiful exclusive shopping fair at Arley Hall. Simply Cheshire takes place on May 20th and 21st and welcomes over 80 carefully selected exhibitors from every corner of the county who have been chosen not only because of their Cheshire connection but because they produce, make or design something original and totally gorgeous.


Last week many of the exhibitors came together at Arley to meet each other before the event. Sale and Altrincham were represented by Jewellery designers Jo Lavelle, Mia Calderisi, Joanne Bull and Rebecca Lawley, ceramicist Tone von Krogh, artists Mandy Cleveland and Anne Earnshaw photographer Matt Priestley, textile designer Lisa Watson bespoke tailor Myles Anthony and willow weaver Juliet Hamilton .  It was a great opportunity for the exhibitors to visit the venue before the event and to network with other artisans from the County.
