        Hi !

        I am new to this site too, and have been making cards for only the past 3 mths.
        I am now doing regular Craft fairs, I found out the locations of these by just doing a Google search for craft fairs in my area(KENT).
        Have you tried doing this yet?? It should come up with a whole list of local events in your area and most with contact details for you to book a pitch.

        Good Luck and let us know how you get on!!

        Regards Christina

          HI Have a look at the following craft fair site.

          It lists a lot of craft fairs each month, and some are in your area.

          http://www.craft-fair.co.uk/

          You also have a craft fair organiser very close, with craft fairs arranged in Congleton, which is very close to you.

                  Joking apart, the Craftsman magazine is a great resource.
