Updated 31st October 2014 Following the success of our previous 2 Creative Colonies events, arty crafty Colonies residents will be selling their merchandise again this year, right where it is made! The dates chosen previously were deemed to be ideal for early Christmas shopping and for a bit of an autumn social event so we’ve chosen the afternoon of Sunday, 9th November this year from 1.30-4.30pm. See a photo of Hannah and her creations in 2013 on https://stockbridgecolonies.com/creative-colonies-2013-sunday-10th-november/ We have 10 Colonies houses which will be open to customers this time and each will be marked by a bunch of red balloons outside the house that afternoon. In order to whet your appetite for a bit of early Christmas shopping or to give you a bit of inspiration or maybe you’ve earned a treat for yourself… here’s the list of what will be where (from east to west)! It’s a perfect chance to meet Colonies residents too!
