There was also another local artisan card maker selling her products. The Emmanuel Crafts stall sold all kinds of bead work – predominantly jewellery but some surprising items such as coasters. All come in attractive gift style packaging.
A range of genuine Nepali items were available on the LEARN stall including a range of bags, scarves, notebooks, blankets, etc. The blankets deserve special mention – made from Yak’s wool, they are incredibly warm but very light, making them perfect for people who need the warmth but can’t tolerate the weight of a thick blanket.
It was lovely to catch up with other friends at the party and great to watch Maureen’s young granddaughter demonstrating her fabulous sales technique – she put The Apprentice candidates to shame!!
