  • Desperately short of crafters in Rugby

    I am short of enough crafters to make a go of The Claremont Craft Fair. So far I have had payment for three stalls and two more promised. I have not yet banked cheques in case I have to return them. Is everyone being very cautious at the moment - I can understand that. I will give it two more weeks and then The Claremont will make a decision.
    Pleeeease have a go, it will be fun.

    If I lived nearer I would come, I have found in general that there are less fairs this year. the Pamper & Pimms in the next village has not gone ahead this year due to lack of interest. I am doing 'Open House' instead.

      Hi Carol. I haven't heard any more from you since you accepted me for the event so haven't sent you a cheque yet. Don't know if you had trouble getting an e-mail to me as I have been waiting for more info. Perhaps you could pm me to bring me up to speed. Thanks.

        I'm looking for more fairs, but you're about 40 miles away from me. True, there does seem to be a shortage of them in some areas this year and sales are not justifying travelling too far from home.

        Good luck and I hope you have a successful day if it goes ahead.

          Hi Carol,

          I hope you received my cheque for the 2 stalls OK? Are there any particular crafts you're looking for, I can ask around locally to see if there would be anyone interested, but if you're fully booked for some I'll make sure to mention that.

              Hi Woodenlady,

              The fair is on Saturday 11th October, at The Claremont in Rugby, which is on the corner of Clifton Road & Bath Street. It's pretty much in the town centre, opposite Lawrence Sheriff School.

              I can't remember the times off the top of my head though - will have to come back and let you know, I think it was 10-3 but I can't be certain.

                  Hi Carol
                  I have had a look at the map, and its about 25 miles for me, which is not to bad - can you send me the dates, prices etc and I will see if I can sort something out to come.

                      Thankyou thankyou one and all, you're so kind to me. I would really love it to get off the ground. I have put so much work into it so far that to cancel would be heart breaking.
                      I will keep monitoring in case anyone else is interested.

                      p.s. I am still trying to trace Julie Brooks - any clue anyone?

                        Could you send me some more details. I am looking to do christmas fairs this year.

                        I sell personalised chocolates, christmas gifts, cards etc.

                        Would you have anyone else doing this kind of craft there?

                        How many people are you expecting through the doors?

                              I hope it goes well for you, I have had a look and it is too far for me to come, even to visit.
