Good news craft lovers - the Brisbane Craft & Gift Fair is coming to a brand new venue on the weekend of 13 & 14 October 2018!

All are welcome to attend this exciting annual event, which raises much-needed funds for CleftPals QLD, Asperger Services Australia and other Quota charities.

This year's fair is expected to be the biggest yet with a huge variety of homewares, artwork, clothing and trinkets taking over The Sleeman Sport Complex.

Over two jam-packed days, eventgoers can enjoy a fantastic range of stallholders, fun workshops, children's activities, presentations & demonstrations and lots of great prizes & giveaways, including lucky door prizes every half hour!

The festivities will commence bright and early at 9am. Come down with your family and friends and enjoy a leisurely morning and afternoon perusing a diverse selection of handmade wares and materials, including jewellery, cards, textiles, millinery, quilting, sewing machines, ceramic buttons and candles.

You can also purchase items for your own craft projects or stock up on unique baby shower, housewarming, birthday or Christmas gift ideas!

Adding to the bustling atmosphere are onstage presentations, where you can learn about new ideas and trends, plus demonstrations at exhibitors stands. There will also be interactive free or small fee workshops for all skill levels, where you can learn new techniques and take home your own creations.

For the little ones, there will be fun children's activities.

If you're feeling peckish, you can head to the wonderful onsite cafe serving delicious food and beverages.

All event-goers will also have the opportunity to win a new Passport 3.0 sewing machine valued at $1000 (RRP), thanks to River City Sewing Machine Centre and PFAFF.

Get a head-start on your Christmas Shopping and treat yourself at the annual Brisbane Craft & Gift Fair on the weekend of 13 & 14 October 2018.
