    Hi, does anyone know of any craft fairs held in South West france? I know there are pre christmas ones but don't know of any for this time of year. Are there any fellow knitters/crochet people near 16260 post code that would perhaps like to meet up say once a month?

    Hi - I live in southern France but not near you I don't think. I'm in the Midi-Pyrenees region - shame as it would have been good to get together. I'm not a knitter although i have done some in the past but I do work with fabric and love sewing. I'm looking for local places to take my products and might try out the local market when i have built up enough stock. As you know markets are everywhere in France and I made some enquiries about a weekly stall which would cost only 1Euro per metre! Got to be worth a try.
    Otherwise we have Christmas fairs locally and Africultural fairs during the spring/summer so I'm going to see what the possibilities might be here too.
    Happy to discuss ideas anytime

    Hi Catherine

    I'm moving to Blagnac in July, do you know if there is anywhere that I could sell my waxmelts/candles. I also sew and make cushion covers. Any tips would be greatly appreaciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Anu
    Thats not too far from me but further than I have explored for possible retail outlets I'm afraid. Toulouse is full of shops and boutiques though and also has quite a lively art scene from what I can gather so I'm sure it won't take you too long to find somewhere able to help. There may also be a market you could go to each week or month and summer fairs often feature more craft stalls than the average weekly market. I'm going to try my luck with some local markets and fairs this summer but have to build up my stock first
    Good luck

    Thanks Catherine, will give them all a go and see what I find. May have to brush up on my French first though!

    Best of luck to you also.
