Masterclock and I are busily making lots of bags – our target is to complete at least 8 each per day as we need plenty of “stock” to take with us to Padstow Vintage Rally. We’ve been to this event a few times in the past and really enjoy it. We set up our morsbags display and sewing table in the Food Tent (next to the Cake Hole, an interesting yurt that comes with a horse trailer adapted as a travelling kitchen and run by the lovely Annette and Dave) and hand out bags to everyone we meet. The stallholders help by encouraging their customers to come to us for a morsbag if they came in at the other side of the tent to where we are. The arrangement works splendidly and we usually meet mostly the same sellers – who are all interested in morsbags and get the idea.
The rally is on from Friday 4th – Sunday 6th July. I hope the weather will be fine like last year (we’ll forget about the year before….)June 22, 2014 at 12:11 am #2635
Less than 2 weeks to go, and half of next week will be taken up as we have to go on a trip to Kent, but we still have 8 days to make 50 or so bags. I’m sure we can do it!! 😀 We’ve made 250 or so since we came back from our hols.June 25, 2014 at 7:29 pm #2638
Wish I could join you, but have a lot on that weekend
However, I do have, to date, 30 bags, and may have more – when are you going/back from Kent ?June 26, 2014 at 9:50 pm #2644
Hi Ivybags! We’ve just got back from our trip to a Kentish funeral, sorry I didn’t see your post, I haven’t been online for a couple of days – been driving, mostly.
Masterclock has been working like a demon on the sewing machine (I’ve been cooking and gardening as well of sewing, so I’m only a third of a demon) and we’ve made 310 bags in the last two and a half weeks. More bags are always welcome, of course! Do you have any plans to visit Cornwall in the next week as the Padstow rally is in a week’s time.
If that’s not on, we are discussing a possible session in an art gallery in Penzance. We were invited ages ago, but didn’t want to tie ourselves down too far ahead. When Padstow is over I intend to contact them to see about a bagging event in July or August.June 27, 2014 at 2:58 am #2645
Ooh great news about Penzance, Beattie. Look forward to hearing more! xJune 27, 2014 at 2:59 am #2646

Thank you so much, Ivybags, for a huge bagful of bags. I hope it stays dry for your flying visit. We’re now ready with plentiful supplies for next weekend 😀June 28, 2014 at 8:00 pm #2653
It was nice to catch up with the Beatties, and enjoy a “Squishy coffee” I hope my 51 bags swelled the coffers a bit for next weekend, which hopefully will be better than today !!!June 28, 2014 at 11:36 pm #2654

1 We are back ok
2 Weather was a bit of a curate’s egg. Tent was republican as it leaked solely on a royal bag, but lots of sunshine too
3 Gave away over 440 bags
4 Including 40+ made while we were there
5 Cozy corner next to the baked goodies with free samples
6 Opposite the “kitchen” with exotic hot boxes
7 Ever had an ice cream where the tables round you gasp when yours arrives?
8 Fire engine actually avoided a collision with a boat and a half on the way there and did an overtake on the way home.
9 Beattie did Radio Cornwall
10 Wonder if pics of smoking plane will come out?
Yes, I think you can say it was pretty good.
Sorry no report and pics from Beattie yet, but she is strangely anxious to make more kits – can’t think why.

An excellent weekend all round – tell her downstairs we want proof (sorry pics)
