This was my first time exhibiting at Made by Hand and I hope it's not my last. Had a wonderful time, fellow exhibitors were all happy to be there and the customers had a keen interest in the products on offer. I'm still smiling now. Was brilliant.

A huge thank you to you and your team for a fabulous show this weekend. Many of my existing customers came, and they really appreciated the quality of the work on show. The organisation of the event was perfect and business was excellent. The show exceeded my expectations and I really hope I can join you again in Cardiff next year.
