Broadwindsor Craft Fair

We are holding a Summer Craft Fair here at the Craft Centre on Saturday 19 July.

The Fair is from 11am – 4pm, and the stall holders will be selling lovely handmade crafts and local produce.

In addition, all the new craft studios will be open, so you can shop for handmade glass, vintage clothes and personalised gifts, painted furniture, fabric, handmade dresses and bags, gemstones and OF COURSE  Wool!

There is plenty of free parking and a coffee shop on site too.  The fair is the same day as another popular local event, the Stoke Abbot street fair, so why not make a day of it in the lovely Dorset countryside?

If you would like a pitch, the cost is just £10 for and 8′ pitch.  Telephone 01308 867504 to book.


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
