Great support at Blair crafters’ festive fair
Busy event atTown Hall
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.”
