  • Arts and Craft Fairs, Sussex

    Hi Everyone, I'm organising some Arts & Craft fairs in Sussex. The idea being that we hire a hall, chip in with the set-up, clear-up etc and split the costs between us. I am an illustrator, and use my designs on boxes, plaques, painted china etc. along with paintings for sale.

    I've found it very expensive doing arts & craft fairs as an exhibitor, hence this idea. I've booked the first venue, Findon Village Hall on Saturday 16th April. The cost works out at £10 for the stall. (9am to 4pm). Entrance is free to the public, but I collect on behalf of UNICEF so will have a donations box available.

    If anyone would like to join me that would be great! So far I have about 4 spaces still available, but look at booking another event in about 8 weeks in another location of Sussex.

    Happy crafting! Helz

          Think this is an old thread from 2005, may be worth trying Stallfinder for current events

            Hi, my name is mandi, I've just joined and am looking for places to sell my querky patchwork items. They are often alterantive, as in the fabrics that I use so need an appropriate venue to sell them.
            Much of my stuff has a vampy twist, ie: vampire ragdolls ( cute, not scary) and patchwork bags made from skull print fabrics, so if you can think of an event coming up which could work for me I would love to hear you advise,

            Many thanks,
