Spring craft fair a suc­cess

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
