Christmas fair extraordinaire!

Our Christmas fair 2014 was a great finish to the year.  The car park was packed full of visitors all day to our workshop and to the Christmas Craft Fair next door in Dilham village hall.  A big thank you for your support to all our visitors.  A big welcome goes out to our new members inspired to join us on the day.  We look forward to seeing you at our meet ups in the new year.  See our diary for details.

Visitors had fun trying out some weaving looms.  Visitors were given the opportunity to try peg looms, rigid heddles and an 8-shaft table loom.  You could also try some kumohimo too.

Members were on hand to demonstrate the guild crafts and answer questions.

And as always, there was lots of lovely work by members on display and for sale.  We were so pleased with the levels of sales this year.  More and more people understand the value and uniqueness of a hand crafted gift, which make them that extra bit special.
