A herd of reindeer come to Ramsgate for this month's Handmade Fair
Saturday 15 November, 10am - 5pm
Makers all over Thanet are getting well and truly into the Christmas spirit. This month’s Handmade Fair in Ramsgate promises a brilliant selection of crafty gifts, so it’s the place to be to find a perfect and affordable selection of presents – and all from local makers and artists!
One of Ramsgate’s busiest crafters is surely Lindy Tweddell. She runs a weekly Craft Club after school at Christchurch Primary School on London Road. It’s so popular that she’s started a second session and there’s still a waiting list. Children are currently learning how to make Christmas rag wreaths, one of Lindy’s creative inventions. Last month she came up with Viking helmets for the Winternights event and her house is filling up with all sorts of stocking filler gifts to bring to the Fair. Lovely hand printed cards and spice bags are popular, and there’s this herd of twig reindeer due to come to the Custom House on Saturday, each with a ribbon and Christmas bell! She came up with doggy bandanas as a new line, which have been snapped up by a London shop, so all in all, Christmas is a great season for her crafting skills.
Come and see Lindy’s work on Saturday 15 November from 10am – 5pm at The Custom House, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate. The Fair is in the upstairs room above the Visitor Information Centre. There’s a dozen stalls with Christmas delights from pickles to jewellery, doggy bandanas to reindeer!
If anyone wants to come and sell their work, get in touch to book a space through www.nice-things.co.uk or by calling 07946 147032.
