Long may it be celebrated!

A vibrant expression of the abundant life which our creator god has given us all!! Long may it be celebrated among the gravestones where lie the remair of the saints of old who are now enjoying everlasting life in Jesus Christ.

Bursaries for emerging talent!

My first time at the festival. What a joyful, inclusive celebration of creativity. So Fantastic to see people young and old mingling at this event, and particularly impressed by the way the festival is supporting young emerging talent in the form of bursaries.

A well organised festival in a gorgeous location…

I have been part of the judging team for the last two festivals and have not witnessed any disrespect for those buried in the grounds. I think it is beautiful that the heart of this community event is in the churchyard, is bringing people together, raising funds and making the community stronger. Long may it continue and a huge well done to the hard working volunteers who make it happen, thank you for another beautiful event.

Wonderful, we look forward to the next one…

The day was truly amazing, everything was so well organised which included road signs and parking. The transport to and from the event was quick, efficient and comfortable - ideal for everyone but more so for those with mobility difficulties. The outfits were stunning and it was so good to see them again when the models walked through the town. The stalls were varied and had beautiful merchandise which was reasonably priced, the catwalks, colour, atmosphere, music, bubbles and food made for a perfect day. You even got the weather right! Wonderful, we look forward to the next one and the two friends we had with us want to come again too.                                   Thank you for a fabulous day.

Super day!

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful day on Sunday 17th July. It was the first time that I had attended an ACP Festival and everyone was so very helpful and welcoming. I had a super day with lots of happy complimentary customers. Thank-you again and I very much hope to attend next time.

Thank you for an AMAZING event…

Just wanted to say thank you for an AMAZING event. It seemed so smooth and we felt totally spoilt! I wish the time-lapse camera on Gracie I had had captured the comments people made as they came into the hall too, it was lovely - even the surprised ones loved it.    And wow the weather - I'm loving seeing all the photos coming up, everyone created such stunning stuff.

It feels like #ACPFest2016 was only yesterday…

I wanted to send you all a note to say a massive THANK YOU! I really appreciate your support and was sorry not to have thanked you all in person on the day. Winning the prize was fantastic, but the real aware is the boost in confidence and the knowledge that every stitch does count, that all the painstaking detail is worthwhile and that craftsmanship is valued and appreciated. It was my plan this year to develop my work in a new direction, to make wearable art pieces that can be both worn and framed as art, and to push myself creatively.
