Wakkerstroom Natural Fibre Handcraft Fair 2011

Date: Saturday 28th May 2011
Time: 9.00a.m. - 2.00p.m.
Wakkerstroom NG Kerk hall.

What the Fair is all about:-

To create awareness of all the “old skills” that are still being practiced today. This is an excellent opportunity for the exhibitors to sell their creations. To promote as many NATURAL fibres as possible, so we can also do our bit in lessening our “carbon foot-print”. Anyone who would like to demonstrate their skills as well will be a most welcome exhibitor. All weavers, lace makers, quilters, knitters, embroiderers, spinners, fabric painters etc., are welcome. Anyone with cleaned and carded fleece has an opportunity to sell their fibre and an event for the Guilds to attract new members and to network with like-minded people.
