We are delighted to welcome Georgina from Feather and Hay to the show. Feather & Hay is all about beautiful and practical textiles and British countryside. The weaving is not only inspired by landscapes, plant and animal life but how we interact with our countryside: those that enjoy strolling through it, working and living in it and those that have a deep history and affiliation with country life. She truly is magical at creating the most gorgeous tactile fabrics.
Stunning, handmade fiddle, teething and sensory necklaces and bracelets, that are not just for babies.
Fiddle beads fiddle necklaces were created when my sling riding, breastfeeding daughter was pinching and pulling at me all the time when feeding and being worn. At the breast she was so distracted and nosey and pulling off at every little sound, and in the sling she rather liked pulling my hair and pinching my neck!
Fiddle beads are the perfect answer to keep her attention at the breast and also keep her hands and fingers occupied and save me from pinching and pulling.
Fiddle beads are also an excellent visual and sensory distraction for babies, children and indeed adults with additional sensory needs, they can be totally customised to look like fun baby safe jewellery to stylish adult statement pieces.
Fiddle beads fiddle necklaces are fully safety tested to BSEN71-1-3 and conform to all EU safety requirements, for your complete piece of mind.
Firespiral is the creation of Tamsin and Jen. We are passionate about woven baby wraps and had a shared dream to one day have our own designs woven.
We have worked incredibly hard to realise this dream, learning the technicalities of weaving in order that our designs ‘work’ on a woven medium, and personally sourcing the yarns that we weave with. The local weaving mill that we are working with are used to creating high quality bespoke fabrics from natural fibres on a scale that is right for our business, and are as excited to be working with us as we are with them. We are lucky to live in an area with such a wonderful weaving heritage, and to have been able to find all that we need so close to home (it is very important to us to source locally)!
Our designs are inspired by the universal patterns in nature that stray into both science and myth; the magical way in which we are connected to the world and its rhythms. We live at the edge of the West Pennine Moors, surrounded by stone circles, local legend and the wild beauty of the hillside, with the shadows of the cotton mills in the valley below. We feel a real sense of belonging to the ancient landscape and it is from this wonderful place that our inspiration takes shape.

I make toy soft structured carriers. They are full buckle, so easy for little people to put on and take off, a mini version of what lots of fellow babywearers use. Children love to copy their parents and with a doll carrier they can carry their favourite doll or teddy the same way they were carried or toddle along next to you wearing their favourite toy while you wear their sibling. I also make a variety of other babywearing accessories like booties, shoes, hats and more.
In the midst of an exciting era where babywearing is getting very popular, we created Joy and Joe baby® to radically rethink the way wraps carriers are designed and presented to customers.
Over time, we have garnered a reputation for creating durable wrap slings that are also very stylish for parents to wear and most importantly very comfortable and safe for children.
Drawing from our life experiences of nurturing our children from their difficult beginnings in the neonatal ward, we are keen to promote the advantages and joys of carrying and holding babies close to a wider audience.
We continue to infuse a hand finished craftsmanship with a modern style into our wraps, offering mums and dads a very enjoyable wrap carrier that is refreshingly authentic and reliable
