Quota International of the Lower Clarence is holding its major fundraiser at the Yamba Bowling Club this Saturday October 1, from 9am to 4pm.
The group’s craft fair has been a long-time highlight for the region’s crafty artisans to display their wares for the benefit of the wider community.
It will be a bumper event, too: the fair was fully booked before the end of August; coordinators Sharman and Ann say a wide “variety of crafts on show” is ensured.
“Old favourites such as Lisa Crispin, with her hand made silver chains and glass beads, Evol King, with her exquisite knits, and Sandy Cousins, with her patchwork supplies, will be joined by first time stallholders, Julie Ostrowski, who will have her candles, and Sharon Lee will be bringing along aroma therapy goods,” says Sharman.
“There will be tasty goodies as well: fudge, sweets, preserves.
“Something for everyone in the family: there will be kewpie dolls, art, cards and journals, jewellery, embroidery and embroidery supplies, wearable art, crafting supplies, clothes, cottage crafts, wooden toys, spinning and weaving, glass art, pearls, handbags, kitchen items, aprons and food covers, breadboards, botanical prints, felting, minerals – the list goes on.”
It’s a great opportunity to shop early for Christmas and find a unique gift.
Quota International of the Lower Clarence’s members have identified the Disabled Surfers Association as the recipient of the raffle proceeds, that has a barbecue as first prize. Other funds raised will be distributed within the local community.
