Shop Handmade this festive season...

With Christmas now only 48 days away its time to get organised!

And this year let’s make being organised by buying handmade!

Every single day of the year the stall holders of the HCM are working tirelessly towards their goals of creating handmade items – whether it be clothes, bags, quilts, soap, candles or food – to sell at local markets around the coast and beyond.

Those stall holders invest their time and money into websites, Facebook and other social media, marketing strategies, photography and that always loved of duties – paperwork – to get the job done. These stall holders are usually a one-person operation with items being designed and cut out in the dark of night when small children are in bed, hand-sewn while waiting for school pick ups and displayed beautifully every market.

This Christmas Market is also a great chance for you to learn some new crafting skills that you could put to use in making your own handmade goodies for gifts.
You could learn to make a set of stylish cards, learn all about Copic markers or even how to use that poor, old ugly fabric that’s hiding in your stash. Our teachers are knowledgeable, friendly and ready to help you create!

For all the information on classes including how to book check out the previous blog post here.

Make a choice this Christmas and support the Central Coast’s crafting community.

Hope to see you there!
