Numerous samples will be available on the night. Notebooks and pens provided for you to record the important details and invaluable hints and tips. A useful session for those contemplating craft fairs in the future or for those who would like to give a handmade gift this year. On the night you will also have the opportunity to make some gifts, for example, a hot chocolate gift or mulling spices, an angel bookmark or a nail file holder. Kits will be available for some of the more time consuming crafts which will provide you with small amounts of materials to get you started. Come along and enjoy the fun over a cuppa and a mince pie.
