Christmas Fair Preparations

Christmas Fair webpage 2010smallThis year we will have our 6th annual Christmas Spirit Fair at Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely. My hook is red hot while I run off hats and scarves and cowls and mittens and little flowers and nice woollies for my stall. I’m sure the other stall holders are equally busy with their production.

This year we will have about 15 stalls, it’s a bit of a squeeze but I’m sure they will all fit in. We are going to use all available space and create a festive Christmas feel in the entire house.

I recommend you come along, if nothing else, come along and enjoy the atmosphere and meet and greet your friends before the final lap of hectic activity kicks in in the second half of the Christmas month. You might even pick up the presents while you are there in a relaxed and happy atmosphere.

The stall holders are all local artists and crafts people: KARE with mixed crafts, artist Sinead Ryan with soaps and handmade cards, potter Christien Van Bussel and her woodturning group, Kate Gibbons with her cool jewellery, Collette will bring yummy baking, Rose Sharpe with her quirky pottery, Declan Kinsella with his precious trees, Irene Lundgaard with my winter woollies, Senan O’Brien with his stunning Tinahely Christmas cards and pretty Christmas Puddings, Mary Sheridan with her mixed crafts, Catherine Ryan with her fantastic prints, Sue Wardell with her healthy honey, Pauline Larkin with her hand knitted Teddies, Sharon Murphy with her pretty silver and beadwork and Anita will have a steady supply of treats with coffee and tea throughout the day.
