At Frock Around The Clock we are proud of our dedication to recycling through the wearing and selling of vintage clothing and other treasures. Our Vintage Fashion and Textile Fairs also include a small group of clever creatives who specialise in handmade items fashioned from vintage or recycled textiles. Here are some of the crafty devils who appeared at our February vintage fair at the Holiday Inn.

Salvage Kitten is the brainchild of my lovely sister Rachael. Her hand made creations are crocheted from wool that she salvages from old knitted garments, and are then trimmed with unusual vintage buttons that she rescues from old clothing, Granny's button tin and vintage sewing boxes.

Having inherited the knack of crocheting from our grandmother, she is able to conjure up all manner of pretty things from her salvaged materials. Popular favourites are her lacy hats and cuffs, while her gingerbread men Christmas tree decorations sold like hot cakes at our November fair.

Eve of Vintage Paperworks is a textile and paper artist who produces fabulous paper art using discarded materials such as vintage maps and dressmaking patterns. Popular creations at FATC are her pretty paper dress pictures which are available either framed or unframed.
Rosie of Lulu Rose creates beautiful hats and jackets under her Aubergine Lining label. These are hand made from recycled textiles, with contrasting linings and fabulous fabric bows. These unique, one-off designs feature interesting textures, quirky colour combinations, and special details.

Rosie is also a keen knitter and produces a range of colourful knitted hats under the label of Loopy Yarns.

Clare of Little Hooligan creates vintage-inspired handknits for babies using vintage knitting patterns. These are then hand finished using vintage buttons and trimmings.
