Coastal Crafty Crew to hold destash fair at Quex Small Barn

A Destash fair takes place on Sunday

The Coastal Crafty Crew is to hold another of its successful ‘destash’ events.

The crew say crafters are like magpies, collecting buttons and bows, thread and wool, pearls and crystals, paper and lace so need to destash annually. This is to: remind themselves of what they actually have; to evaluate the value of each item in their stash; to remember why they bought an item; to resurrect projects they had planned many months ago and to make space for new items.

At a destash fair items are sold in various sized packages – some are only a few pieces, others contain many different items of different colours, style, types, but all are at much reduced prices.

There is also the opportunity to chat to other crafters, to exchange ideas, to get advice and maybe to learn something new.

Coastal Crafty Crew is holding its destash fair on Sunday September 18 from 10am – 3pm in the Small Barn at Quex Park, Birchington.

Any profits from the sales and the tombola are donated to British Deaf Association and Children’s Air Ambulance.

The crew also holds a Handmade Craft Fairs on the first Sunday of every month – same place and time. If you are interested to have a stall or do a demonstration of a craft please email [email protected]
