Melplash Show

With Melplash show only two days away some of our local customers might be testing out that cake recipe one last time to make sure it’s perfect for the yearly cake competition, I know that Tom at Livingstone Textiles has been busy trying to get his cake perfect for the big day… he’s been known to bake some beautiful cakes in the past! This year he’s planning on entering the men’s only class and will be hopefully making a Guinness and chocolate cake, the staff at Livingstone Textiles are hoping we might get a taste of some of the practice pieces.

Maybe you’re not so interested in cake baking as much as in the decorating of it.  Sugarcraft is an amazing skill to have and last years Melpash show entries showed off the high skills that the people of Bridport have. We’re taking our pop up shop down to the show again this year and are really looking forward to seeing this years entries.  We thought this cake ribbon might give you some inspiration for the occasion and could add the perfect finish to your cake!

Maybe you are entering a flower arrangement?  Don’t forget we have a wide range of ribbons and bows that could add to your display.  We stock a vast selection in the shop in Bridport, from Hessian ribbons to traditional satin in many colours and widths.  These can add to your arrangement without distracting from the beautiful flowers.  If you forget something or need it at the last minute we will have a small selection to chose from on our stand

If you’re coming to the show, how about a visit to see all those lovely arts and craft entrees in the craft marquee. One year there were some lovely bunting flags that had been made using many of our shop fabrics.  We were delighted to see the work involved and that we could be part of that winners success.

We really enjoy seeing the beautiful crafts and garments that people can make from our fabric selection.  Entrants put colour and pattern together in a totally unique way and when we see them entered into a competition we feel very proud to have been part of the story. We really can’t wait to see what sewing entrants pop up at the Melplash show this year.

The Melplash show offers a great day out to Bridport, full of agriculture, animals, machinery and local trade stands.  If you’re traveling down to Dorset for the show, you can always pop in to the shop and see us if you get time, or pop across to our stand and say hello.
