Craft & Stitches Show

Hello blogging friends, Please excuse the quality of these photos. They were taken on my phone as I forgot to take my camera.
I had a wonderful time at the Craft & Stitches show held at the Caulfield Race Course this year.
I was on the Society of Folk & Decorative Artists stand with a bunch of other happy painters!

 It was great to see and hear the wonderful comments about being at the show with a lot of interest in our stall. The amount of people coming through was amazing. We have a lot of very talented Artists in our Society and they got to show off their great talents.

 We sold Paints, brushes, Woodwork, painted items that our members had painted and held three workshops a day that were full with ladies and children interested in learning Painting. 

 Some of our wares for sale. I couldn't take photos of our members display because "no photos were allowed".
These Christmas decorations were a big seller.  We sold around 50 per day and all the money will be donated to Alzheimer's Australia and Royal District Nursing Service. The ladies could hardly keep up with the demand and I think some left our stall still wet.
Creative hugs,
Anna

Glad your fair went well and was successful. It looks as though you had a good time and I'm glad. sounds like you have been having a rough time of it lately with your friends and family illness and death. I'm sorry for these things going on, especially the cancer death, those are always horrid. I hope these next months will be a healing time for you.
Be well.
