Your Comment
I went here on Monday. Lady went 4 years ago which I really enjoyed. This year not so much. The crafts were pretty much old fashioned. There needs to be some more up to date crafts included. I saw a couple of younger exhibitors . It was all sewing, sewing machines , fabrics , bit of knitting . Scrapbooking . Even the quilting exhibitors have dwindled with only a handful on show. The place was dull. There's needs to be maybe a novice area for people to sell/ show off their skills . A boutique market maybe.
