Today you can have a sneaky peek inside the lovely Johnshaven venue that is shared by sisters Tracy Blease and Susan Young. 

Susan lives in the fantastically named Apple Cottage, and trades as The Apple Cottage Company.   The venue for NEOS is a cheerful summerhouse in the garden.



Susan produces beautiful textile work – lovely accessories for your home.  I treated myself to this keyring which looks good enough to eat!

Tracy is the very talented lady behind Quirkycat jewellery.  She does amazing things with polymer clay and is probably best known for her double sided pendants. 

These photos show two sides of a Quirkycat pendant.  Each one is totally unique.  You can see more of Tracy’s work at
