Made In Newcastle Christmas Fair

Hello there! Long time no speak.
Well we have some news for y'all. Although we've not quite yet got the new premises sorted for the shop, the We Make North East collective are still beavering away with projects.
Last month we ran a bauble decorating workshop for charity at the Metro Centre. In return for all our grafting the lovely peeps at the shopping mall are allowing us to use the central space of Exhibition Square to host a Christmas fair.

The fair will be on the 1st and 2nd December and we have lots of lovely artists designers involved selling all sorts of gorgeous lovingly made gifts, at very reasonable prices.
We will be in the Metro Centre from 10am - 10pm so please come by and say howdy, tell us that you miss us and make us feel all warm and cosy :) ha ha.

Also there are still some spaces left so if you want a stall on either or both days. Spaces are £30 for one day or £50 for both. Please note you will need public liability insurance and you will need to provide your own table (chairs we already have). All money generated from the stall hire will be put into setting up the new MIN shop which we are now in sniffing distance of sorting out.
If you would like to know more contact lucyfarfort@yahoo.com for details.
