The last two weeks have been somewhat of a whirlwind. I spent the first week in New York attending the Martha Stewart 'Dreamers Into Doers' Entrepreneurial event which was held at The Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Offices. The next few days were spent visiting the 'Enterprise Ireland Offices' and learning all about 'Education Ireland' which I will share later. The following week was spent in Dublin at Ireland's Premier Tradeshow where I launched my line of Irish Textiles, proud to say,'Made In Ireland'. The name of the event was 'Showcase Ireland'. This was a veritable treasure trove where Irelands premier artists,fashion designers and crafts people exhibited. I discovered some wonderful people and products and learned their stories, which I plan on sharing with you.
I need to recover from a little jet lag, compile my thoughts and upload photos & videos ! So bear with me......!


  1. Dear Rachael - I was up at Showcase last Sunday - too bad, would have been fun to meet.
    I'm going a whole campaign on my blog called "Love Irish Crafts" - it launches on Tuesday and is going to run year long in celeration of the Year of the Craft. You must send me along details of your line of textiles and photos! I'll be sure to include them.
    How exciting to go Martha Stewart's entrepreneurial event - it sounds great, hope to hear more about it.
    Do email me some details about your new line - - look foward to hearing from you.
    Best, Lisa
