CRAFT FAYRE at St Andrew’s Church

If you didn’t pop into St.Andrew’s Church on Saturday, 13th July, you missed a rare treat in Cromhall. The church was buzzing with amazingly talented local crafters and overawed visitors all enjoying the sunny day sustained by coffee and cake and tasty bacon butties!

You really had to be there to appreciate the beautiful things people had made (the photos are good but only give half the story). Items of jewellery to chopping boards, stitch work to pottery and much, much more, were on display or for sale. 
But the day was more than just about selling things - to be able to feel the incredible smoothness of natural turned wood and see the detail and skill close up of so many of the items was a privilege and then to have the opportunity to learn how they were made through their enthusiastic creators was the ‘icing on the cake’.

There were also display crafts of spinning and basketry so there really was something for everyone. It would be safe to say that all items for sale were unique and crafters were open to orders so it was a wonderful opportunity to buy that gift for someone who has everything. We 

hope to repeat the day in the future so do look out for information. We look forward to seeing you then.

Thank you to all crafters who brought along their work for us to see and buy. Thank you to everyone who came to the event and also to those who provided tea, coffee, cake and bacon butties to keep us all going throughout the day. As well as having a most enjoyable time, we raised over £500 for the care and upkeep of St Andrew’s 

Church. Well done everyone.
