Go there. Take cash or buy 'craft cash' for use on the day. It is on today only.
Reasons I like smaller craft fairs like this? They celebrate diversity (and I don't just mean ethnicity, but rather the right to wear a panda hat with steampunk jewellery) and they are filled with Mums, many of whom have started a new career in crafting after having children. I love the ideas and fabric. I love that the crafters use the fabric made by local fabric designers. I got to meet some of my favourite designers, Dustys&Lulu, creators of awesome print designs and Sweet William, who have designed their own children's colouring book (full of awesome designs rather than the typical animal pictures). I also got to catch up with Heleen from Ruby in the Dust. I did her pillowcase transformation workshop last year - and have since gone a little pillowcase mad! I have a stack of pillowcases from the op shop waiting to be transformed into aprons, dresses, bags and pants. I also encountered a neighbour who produces the most amazing steampunk jewellery.
An awesome morning, would have been a little more awesome if it didn't involve dragging a protesting four year old behind me!
