Sugar Snap Studio was set up in 2012, to house the growing collection of illustrations for children by Jessie Ford. To date, her work has included packaging for Mothercare, suitcase illustrations for Samsonite, children’s books for Abrams Publishing USA, and murals for Sophie Dahl, to name a few.
Here are a few photographs from the big event. There were a lot of activities going on across London that weekend, particularly on the Saturday, and Sunday’s dreary wet weather left a lot to be desired. Regardless of this however, keen shoppers turned out in their hundreds to support our designers and makers and to gather their Christmas gifts. The hall looked proper festive (I think the paper chains just about held out to the last!) and thanks to the welcoming smiles and cheery chatter from the stall holders, a warm and buzzing, Christmassy atmosphere rang throughout.
Every so often on the Saturday, the chatter would stop, while London Acapella Choir Time At The Bar sang us a few festive numbers from their Christmas repertoire.
There was a sausage roll shortage on the Saturday, but a fried egg sandwich breakfast for the stallholders on the Sunday was an out-and-out winner. Well done Team!
