Introducing a new stallholder at the Festival this year, Lady Carberry! She’s joining one of the Festival favourites, The Peddlar, to bring custom-made medieval garments to you! She’s been making garments for over thirty years, and will be selling a range of items from jewellery, clothing and accessories, medieval-styled homewares and bric-a-brac.
Lady Carberry has been making accessories, clothing, jewellery and homewares for over three decades and custom made medieval clothing for the last ten years, and has gained a reputation for detailed and high-quality workmanship. By using quality fabrics, trims and accessories in conjunction with consultations with each client, Lady Carberry creates beautiful garments which conjure the feelings and atmosphere of a bygone time.
Her love of history, of tales of princesses and knights, began as a child, and she hasn’t lost the wonder that these tales bring. She learnt her skills for sewing from her seamstress mother who taught her the old fashioned way, and guided her through many creations. Being at the Abbey Medieval Festival brings together her two loves, and makes her feel at home, surrounded by so many history buffs and incredible garments.
After her hobbit costumes were seen at the world premiere of The Hobbit (check out the photo with Elijah Wood!), she’s been flooded with requests for custom clothing. And when they’re of such a high standard, who can be surprised! Lady Carberry will still have goodies on sale for you to purchase at the Festival and the Kid’s Day, so make sure to drop on in and have a peek at the skill and love she pours into each item! Check out http://www.facebook.com/LadyCarberryCreations or http://www.ladycarberrycreations.com/ to see more of what she’s done. If you’re seeking advice and wisdom on making your own outfit, she’s always available to help those in need!
