Quota Craft and Gift Fair

Every year Quota International of Carindale holds a Craft and Gift Fair
This year is going to be even bigger as they have moved to a bigger venue. The new venue is the Carina PCYC. The entire building and the grounds will be used for the Fair.

Inside the main hall...
There will be the usual Craft stalls, where you will be able to purchase handmade goods. There will be something for everyone, jewelry, craft products and kits, sewing materials, wood turned objects and ready made products. A great way to get the Christmas list filled.

Some of the exhibitors will be demonstrating their wares throughout the day at their stands. I for one love standing and watching creativity in action.

Also in the main hall you may be lucky enough to win one of the half hourly door prizes. If they are not claimed don't despair the lucky number gets put up on a board and you can claim it at any time throughout the day.

At the end of the day, you could be the lucky winner of a Sewing Machine. This is our door prize donated by River City Sewing. You must be there at the time of drawing.

On Stage...
11am - A fashion parade will be showing beautiful fashions by Sobidah . As it is coming up for Melbourne Cup you might find something for the big day.

 On Stage Presentations...
10am - In the Presentation area Dr Kathleen Berry will be presenting Fashion Design and Pattern Making in the presentation area. Whatever your body shape or size.  Create garments that make you look good and feel great.

12 noon- Also in the Presentation area you will be able to say hello to me and hear my presentation on Let's Start at the Very Beginning. What ever hobby that you have there are always the starting items that you will need. I will share with you the basics of card making and how to gather a starter kit together.

 2pm - The Final presentation for the day in the  Presentation area Dr Kathleen Berry will again be presenting Fashion Design and Pattern Making in the presentation area. Whatever your body shape or size.  Create garments that make you look good and feel great.

Is all this making you hungry ? Cafe 42 will be open all day for coffee, cakes and lunch. So take a break, sit and recharge, then head back for more fun.

Outside...
  • Bunnings will be setting up a children's activity area, so bring the kids and let them enjoy some fun time too. 
  • Westpac will be on the barbie cooking up some sausages with all monies raised going back to Quota Charities.
  • Emma will be painting faces of children and adults if they want!!
