Craft Fairs 2017
Easter : Saturday 15th April
Summer : Friday 18th August

Made In Minginish Craft Wednesdays
2017 26th April - 13th September
Craft group member price is £2 per table and requires you to be on the rota for manning the hall, running the cafe, baking and making soup.
Since all profits go to craft group funds to run further activities we also ask that other members who don't have craft tables be on the rota.
Non-member price is £6 per table and requires that you remain in the hall for the whole day to man your stall, but you will not be required to take payment for other people's sales, work in the cafe or provide baking - unless we're desperate!
These sales are specifically to promote local makers and as such tables are not available to craftsmen from outwith the Minginish/Bracadale area.
Any further details from Jenny or Irene, see contacts below.

Afternoon meeting dates :
We are always looking for further ideas for activities, so if you have a burning desire to learn a particular craft please let us know!
This year some of our activities are repeats of previous sessions as people have requested another go, so feel free to bring your own projects along if you don't want to participate in the craft-of-the-day.
Membership costs £15 per year, paid in advance, which covers all meetings in that year.
Non-members are welcome to attend any session at a cost of £2 per meeting.
At every meeting we will have-a-go at a craft activity if possible (no pressure!)
We do not provide aprons but do have plastic gloves and plastic table coverings
