ONE STALL HOLDER’S STORY

Many people have had cancer touch their lives with mixed emotions: guilt that it’s not you, relief that it’s not you mixed with immense sadness and sorrow. My sister has lived through a horrendous year, and it’s not over yet, but it is with great happiness that I can say “ lived”.

Throughout her ordeal the hardest emotion for me to deal with was the feeling of uselessness. There was absolutely nothing I could do to make her life better.  I sit in Cornwall and sew. Then I heard about The Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair hosted at the Eden Project.

I have been sewing for over 20 years and have recently explored leatherwork. Friends asked me to make them handbags but with little design differences, “I love this bag but just wish it had …” and Cully Bags Cornwall was born. If you would like to see more come and visit me at the Fair where a percentage will go directly toward the Macmillan charity.
