Christmas craft fair Saturday November 13

November 10, 2010

The latest Made in Weston Christmas Craft fair is being held on Saturday November 13 at the prestigious Winter Gardens venue on the sea front in Weston-super-Mare from 10am – 5pm.

In Excess of 50 stalls are booked to sell their wares of locally made products.  Among the stalls will be makers of handcrafted cards, original artwork, photography, Christmas decorations, adult’s and children’s jewellery, bags, handmade toiletries, books, homewares such as cushions, culinary delights including seasoning blends, cakes, chutneys and jams.

The event coincides with the re-launch of the revamped Made in Weston website: The site is now ‘live’ and will feature an online shop. Any members interested in stocking their products in the shop should contact Becky or Abbie via email for details.

Event organiser Rebecca Keating said: “The ethos of Made in Weston is to offer quality locally sourced goods wherever possible. This will be our 6th event and each time we are getting more creative local people coming forward with a diverse range of great products.

“If you are looking for quality, locally sourced Christmas presents you should come along to Made in Weston.”

This Made in Weston event follows two previous successful craft fairs this year, one in June at the Winter Gardens and the August on the Italian Gardens in Weston-super-Mare High Street. The summer event raised £520 for the local branch of the RNLI through donations from the public on entry.

Entry is free, although the local branch of the RNLI will be on hand at the door – all donations welcome.
