Spring craft fair a success
The Association of Blairgowrie Craftworkers (ABC) held a successful spring fair on Saturday.
The fair, which was held in Blairgowrie Town Hall, saw a steady stream of visitors throughout the day, all keen to browse the wide selection of locally-crafted items available to purchase.
It was the first fair of the year for the group, which has attracted a number of new members in recent months, including June Low who works in textiles, photographer and artist Tina Gliddon, Jacqueline Cameron who makes jewellery, and confectionist Heather Kelly.
Chair of the ABC, Tracie Dick, was pleased with the success of the spring fair.
She said: “It was a busy event and we were really pleased with the turnout - both in terms of the number of stall holders we had and the number of visitors. It was a great way to welcome our newer members, a great start to the year and we are looking forward to the rest of this year’s events.”
The ABC is a group of craft hobbyists and businesses that produce a variety of handmade items.
A silver collection at the door of all the association’s events this year will be donated to a local charity.
