BestStart for Rarebird

25 Apr 2019


2019 has started out to be a busy year with our first event being the Scotland's SpringTrade Fair in Glasgow. I was very happy to meet my trade customers old and new and have a good chat. The best part of a trade show... apart from staying in the lovely Crowne Plazza hotel is a chance to show off all the new colours and designs and to see which gains the most interest.

So after all my hard work in the studio over the winter months including Christmas and New Year I was very happy to be awarded the Gold Best Product Award for my new 'Waves' Clutch Bag. A lovely new colour of Harris Tweed Teal with freehand machine embroidery and handbeaded decoration. Inspired by the sea all around me here is The Outer Hebrides. I must say it was very enjoyable designing and making the new wave clutch bag and also a Machair version. So being given the Gold award and having a lovely display in the winers cabinet for everyone to see was a great boost to start 2019 and the Champagne was very nice too.
