Its all so very exciting.......Our Christmas Fair Begins....

Our Christmas Fair has begun, yep, the doors are wide open.
Sheila snuck me in for a bit of a quick pic session this morning, aren't I the lucky one! and because I can't keep anything to myself, here are some tiny peeks collages of the lovely work that has been done throughout the year and is being offered for sale.

Nativities are all the go for the season, the clever girls from the Spinners and Weavers Group are offering this really smart knitted Nativity Set - complete with lamb!
 a few more samples of the Spinners and Weavers Group wares.
and the first thing you see when you walk into the Patchwork Group's room is this lovely Nativity wall Hanging,
followed by walls covered with some wonderful quilts and tables just groaning under the weight of patchwork goodies.

The Needlework Girls have a wonderful display of beautiful works, ranging from baby's singlets and bibs up to fully dressed dolls in cradles and framed Brazilian embroidery for your walls.
Along with all the great silk scarves, silk bags, silk covered note books etc. etc. the Fabric Art and Surface Design girls also have a large range of  beautiful clothing/wearable art.

The Potters set up their display way back on Wednesday, so no one was around to ask for photography permission, however we were lucky enough to get permission to show Ruth's Gum nut babies and her other work.

Fran was busily setting up the Novelties stall while we were there, she had the cutest little wine glass coasters, just slip them over the glass base and you know its your glass, stops the drips and looks pretty too!

Porcelain Painters have a large range of lovelies, including some Christmas Designs on their cake plates.

The Lace making ladies have another wonderful range of hand made lace for sale, including a table loaded with baby knits!, lovely soft little cardies and jackets and beautiful lace trimmed linen handkerchiefs.

Machine Embroidery Group has some rather different wares on offer this Christmas, great wall hangings as well as the prettiest patty cake pin cushions, aprons, keepsake boxes table runners, quilts and more.
One of the Silversmiths was wandering around, sticking red dots on stuff - I kid you not - (Sheila and I had a bit of a go at the red dots too!!) -  she very kindly modeled one of the aprons, adorned with the brightest red lips and the words 'Kiss the Cook'

And why was she wandering around, well it was time for the Silversmiths to be setting up their display, got you some pics of the wonderful goodies available, including some that had to get a bit of a quick polish!!, nothing like using your hem to polish up your goodies!

There are 4 other groups with wonderful goods for sale, the Painters, (Oil and Water, not House). Life Drawing, Mixed and Multimedia Art - some really innovative designs there -, and the Calligraphy Group, who have the cutest tea towels penned with words of wisdom, hand crafted cards for all occasions, little note books and other goodies.
So if you are on the Sunshine Coast this weekend, pop along and bag yourself a goodie or two.

We are open from 5 to 8 tonight, Saturday 8a.m. to 4p.m., and Sunday 9a.m. to 12 noon. and you will find us at 5 Main Street Buderim, Parking off Church Street.
Couldn't embed map or directions from Google, so to view a map pop over to the Buderim Craft Cottage site at  http://www.buderimcraftcottage.com.au/ scroll down to 'Where to find us' and the map is there for you.

The Lions Club also joins us in our Christmas Fair, they have many stalls in the Memorial Hall, corner of Main Street and Church Street, as well as outdoor stalls on the lawn between the Hall and our Cottage.
Hope to see you there!!


Our kitchen will be open and serving hot cuppas and lovely munchies for morning and arvo tea and lunches.
