    Default Christmas Fair Stall

    After much worrying we decided to go ahead with our Christmas Fair at the Tithe Barn in the village where I live. I was Co-ordinator this year , as well as providing their Tombola stall (proceeds to Tithe Barn funds) and my own stall for Ruperts fund!
    My sister and I have been knitting like mad since September when I decided to have a theme of all things gnomes and elves.
    I was pleased with how the stall looked, we also make crackers for dogs and cats, christmas cards, handbag facecloths, overnight bags for men (new this year!!!?),homemade gingernut truffles in little handbag shaped boxes and we had Ruperts and lots of Tania`s christmas cards to sell.
    We had -8 deg the night before and 14 inches of snow had fallen during the previous week, but we were so lucky because so many people still slithered their way on the treacherous roads and paths to support us. Our stall made 220.00 for Ruperts fund, which I am sending to Tania for her to forward to Penny Knowler.
    Sorry this is a long post but, I am so relieved after so much hard work that it all went so well!

    CONGRATULATIONS Christine that was a fantastic effort and a wonderful amount of money to raise - we are so pleased


    Please thank your sister too - it sounds like both of you have been very busy...but it's worth it to raise that much money, also don't forget that you are raising awareness which is just as valuable.


    Any photos?? Would love to see what you have been making.

    The weather sounds atrocious so you did amazingly well to raise that money, I'm sure less people will have been out and about.

    WOW, Christine that's an amazing success, especially under the awful weather circumstances in your neck of the woods. Well done to all concerned.

    If there are any items left over, could they go into the Rupert's Fund auction perhaps?
