You can't go wrong with a gift you can eat and there's no better place to look for that perfect something than at the Foodies Festival Christmas. We headed along to the festival in Edinburgh a few weeks ago for #CraftInTheCity and came back filled with ideas, food and drinks. Inspired by the amazing gin samples on offer at the festival, we've mixed up a mulled gin & tonic with Daffy's Gin.

I design and make crocheted accessories. I love combining new and vintage yarns and threads and to mix natural fibres with more unusual materials, such as nettle twine, wire and banana silk. I am also a screen print artist. My screen prints and illustrations are quite simple in style, inspired by vintage children’s illustrations and fashion photography, as well as theatre and dance. I have been working with the Guild of Master Craftsman Publications, producing a range of craft books which cover a variety of creative disciplines, including print making, knitting, crochet and sewing, suitable for the beginner through to the advanced maker. I have also written projects for various craft magazines.

The Isle of Wight offers plenty of variety within its 57 miles of coastline: as well as numerous beaches, you’ll find open countryside, woodland, towns, historical landmarks – all conveniently close together! Passenger ferries from Portsmouth (22 minutes by fastcat with rail links on both sides), Southsea (10 minutes by hovercraft to Ryde) and Southampton (25 minutes on the Red Jet to Cowes) make a day trip from the mainland a good option if you’re after a small taste of what the Island has to offer. But with hotels, guest houses, self-catering cottages and campsites available across the Island why not stay a while?
