We will be back with our first market on February 14th 2010 and you can look forward to a wonderful year of Crafty goodness!

Applications for tables /spaces for the Feb 14th Market will open on 11-15th  January on the blog so make you get your application in. If you are a new stall holder you will need to use the New Stallholder application form!

Summer Craft Social

As can be expected at this time of year, we had a rather small gathering for the last Craft Social of the year. With just the three of us, we had a lot of mince pies to get through and we had a great time discussing plans for Christmas. Of course, I set up the table with the lovely swap items and completely forgot to take a picture. There were scrummy pastel flower earrings from Kimberly of Adamar, an amazing wrap top (which I was lucky enough to take home) by Pam Bestwick of Colorme who we are hoping will be a seller at next year's market and I made a soft sculpture beach house. Just a reminder that Craft Social is open to everyone, not just market people, so please do come along in the New Year. The next social will be 7.30pm Sunday 14th March. We'll let you know the theme of the swap closer to the time. If you have any suggestions for a them, please do post them in the comments section!

In the meantime, here are some long overdue photos from the Devonport Christmas Festival and Lions Santa Parade.

Sarah B acquired some particularly attractive headwear for the day courtesy of the Community co-ordinator Maire.

Rain rain stay away

We've got far too much fun planned for tomorrow for it to rain!

Tomorrow is the last Devonport Craft Market of the year and it's chockfull of crafty goodness. We have a mini version of our usual market out on the Windsor Reserve, 10-3 tomorrow. You can see who will be there in the sidebar over to the right. Just scroll down and you'll see it.

We're part of the very first Devonport Christmas Festival and its going to be a fantastic day. There's a brilliant Santa Parade at 11am organised by the wonderful people from the local Lions Club. Dance in the Park kicks off on Windsor Reserve shortly afterwards (lots of amazing professional and amateur dance performances) and there's a kids rummage sale, food, bouncy castle, fire engine, masseuse and even a flypast by the Westpac Helicopter.

Come on down and join the fun (and get some Christmas shopping done at the same time!)
