Craft Fair

Published by The Editor on

Last year, the Craft Group had a really successful Craft Fair so we thought we’d try another one this year.  November 5th saw the church full of stalls although perhaps not quite as many as last year.  We only managed to attract one outside stallholder and the rest were staffed by our own Craft Club members.  However the public response was much improved.  In the morning especially, quite a lot of people came round and bought Christmas Cards and Christmas presents;  home-made baking and jams and marmalades; jewellery and handbags;  calligraphy pictures and hand-knitteds and much, much more.  Many people stopped to enjoy Judith’s refreshments and she kindly kept the stall-holders well-supplied with lubrication throughout.  By early afternoon, three stalls had sold out!!!!  The Sierra Leone craft stall could have sold more bags if there had been any.   We haven’t yet got totals from all the participants but it is clear that there is going to be a very useful contribution to church funds and the Sierra Leone projects will benefit by £80 (and a further £10.50 received at the Sunday afternoon concert) as well as the money received for the bags, tablecloths and tunics etc. made in the Training Centre in Kailahun.
