The Pittenweem Arts Festival starts tomorrow [7th August] and runs until the 15th August. Tonight is the preview night so why not pop along from 7-9pm and have a drink and get a sneak preview of the work on display?
As always my work schedule is just far too busy and I’m not able to take a week off to attend and exhibit and sell my work during the festival, but as I have a great stockist in Pittenweem – Funky Scottish – Karen, the owner of the gallery/shop asked me to supply a box full of my wares especially for the event. I drove over yesterday with a box box full of Milomade delights so that she could hand pick what she wanted to sell during the festival this year.
So if you are going to be attending the festival over the next week and would like to see/buy Milomade items, then please pop into Funky Scottish – it’s a really lovely little gallery/shop with lots of gift items and artwork for sale. It’s now fully stocked with the follow Milomade stuff:
