Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

The As­so­ci­a­tion of Blair­gowrie Craft­work­ers (ABC) held their pop­u­lar four-day Christ­mas craft fair at the week­end.

The event, which show­cases the work of lo­cal crafters, took place in Blair­gowrie Town Hall and or­gan­is­ers were pleased with the turnout both of stall hold­ers and cus­tomers.

There was a range of goods on sale in­clud­ing glass­ware, ce­ram­ics, cards, con­fec­tionery, jew­ellery, tex­tiles, cro­cheted goods, wooden and leather goods .

Tra­cie Dick, who is chair of the ABC, said about the event: “We had a good few days with a steady stream of cus­tomers com­ing through the doors and tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to get a head­start on Christ­mas shop­ping and pur­chase some unique, hand­crafted gifts.

“We had a good turnout of stall hold­ers with 24 mem­bers tak­ing part sell­ing beau­ti­ful hand­made items.

“And as well as our reg­u­lars, we were es­pe­cially de­lighted to wel­come new mem­bers.

“We had Paula Ewen with her gift­boxes and Nan Meik­leour with her shawls.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to the ladies of the SWI’s Blair­gowrie group for pro­vid­ing the fan­tas­tic food over the four days.

“The stovies, in par­tic­u­lar, went down a treat with stall hold­ers and cus­tomers!

“Thanks also to the Blair­gowrie Town Hall com­mit­tee for their con­tin­ued sup­port.

“Our next event will be our spring fair next year and we look for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one then.”
