Cracking  Craft Fair Hits Redcliffe
Are you mad about macramé, crazy about crafts and just plain jolly about jars of jams and pickles? Then the Redcliffe Quota Craft and Gift Fair at Redcliffe Showgrounds on July 7 has the perfect selection of home-made and hand-crafted goods to satisfy your crafty inclinations.

And, of course, it’s all for a good cause.

Quota International is a non-profit organisation empowering women, children, the deaf, those who are hard of hearing and speech impaired in local communities around the world.
Quota International’s Kay Smallhorn says the fair helps the organisation raise money to achieve their mission.

“The fair and the stallholders, and the public it attracts helps to raise the club’s purpose and profile in the community,” she says.

“ The event is one of our major fundraising events of the year and the funds we raise assist many community groups, including Cartmill & Pender Riding for the Disabled; QuoCKa Reading in Redcliffe’s Primary Schools; Jebb House, supporting victims of domestic violence; The Breakfast Club; Chameleon House for homeless youth; Meals on Wheels; Hummingbird House; Hear and Say Centre; Mummy’s Wish; and Share the Dignity.”

Kay says fans of craft and hand-made goods will have plenty to browse and buy, with a stack of stallholders signed up to take part. And there’s even an incredible lucky door prize up for grabs.

“The community has been very supportive of the fair with 400-500 visitors annually,” she says.

“We can fit 30 stalls into Webb Hall, and they cover a variety of products including children’s clothes, jewellery, cards and card-making materials, jams and pickles, children’s cloth storybooks, wood-turned items and toys, knitting, crochet, macramé, mosaic and pottery items.

“The stallholders we encourage and support are almost entirely from the Moreton Bay Council Region, and the club wants to encourage the public to support these talented craft people in our own region.

“And this is the third year that Newport Mooloolaba Apartments have donated a wonderful family two nights’ getaway valued at $800.

“ Our winners have been thrilled with their prize, and we are very appreciative of the support from this accommodation property on the Sunshine Coast.”
