Makit LQ&N (Lacemaking, Quilting & Needlework) Christmas Fair 2018

A  look back at the Makit LQ&N (Lacemaking, Quilting & Needlecraft) Christmas Fair at Cranmore Park!

We had a successful day on Saturday 1st December for the last of our 2018 Fairs. Many new suppliers joined our regulars at Cranmore park and wehad many happy visitors through the doors, some who had travlled by coach quite some distance to join us.

SET UP AND GETTING READY

Many of our suppliers either stay over the evening before or set off in the early hours to get to our events ready to set up. It's always a hub of activity with unpacking and arranging tables and displays, we have captured some of the activity ahead of the doors opening to our eager visitors.

AND THEY'RE OFF!!

Doors open at 10am and a steady flow of visitors came through the doors wanting to see their favourite traders and stock up on their craft supplies. Many of the visitors are from some of the national textile craft groups and have travelled together. We even had a returning visitor from Germany with a small party of colleagues who planned their visit to the fair to coniside with their return flights!
