The first ever venture out of the village proved to be a great success. The hardy crafters of the village Crafts in Action group transformed four beach hut cabins at Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale to create Hindolveston’s own pop up craft market. The market lasted for 6 days between Thursday 22nd and Tuesday 27th June 2017.
Despite hailstones when we were setting up and rain when we were leaving, we were lucky with the weather and the sun shone every day. We had willow weavers, rope crafts, screen prints, modern textiles, photographs, patchwork, crochet baskets, woodturning, wool and knitted items plus leatherwork and feltwork. Our group was well represented and there were lots of beautiful crafts for our customers to choose from.
Thanks to everyone from the village who came to visit us and show their support, especially Doug and Heather Kettle who brought sausage rolls and cake with them to help sustain us.
The next C-in-A event is on Sunday 13th August when we will be demonstrating our various crafts in Hindolveston Village Hall – check out the post. After that, the Christmas Craft Market 2017 will be in the Village Hall over the first weekend of December: Saturday 2nd (evening only) and all day on Sunday 3rd December. A separate post will be published later this year.
