All about Sew & Tell presents A Very Crafty Christmas!

We’re back! After a super successful inaugural event earlier this year Sew & Tell will once again take over Bangalow’s beautiful A & I Hall from 9.00am to 1.30pm on Saturday 8 December.

With the original bearded hipster set to visit just a few weeks later, Sew & Tell is the place to find the perfect gift for those that have been naughty or nice!

Organisers Tory Bauer and Gabe Cramb said “We are curating this edition of Sew & Tell with the festive season in mind and everything that goes along with it. Handmade and vintage gifts are unique. They are special. You feel good giving them.”

Yes, Sew & Tell presents A Very Crafty Christmas will be jam packed with one of a kind gifts for family and friends. There will be a diverse array of crafty goods for sale including everything from handmade journals, children’s clothes and home-wares, textiles, stenciling and felting to applique, painting, jewelry, handmade cards and wrapping paper, and sew much more.

As well as craft there will be vintage clothes, retro wares, nic nacs, records and a few additional blokey stalls to find that special something for the fellas.

Sew & Tell presents A Very Crafty Christmas will also see the return of some of the special stalls that were so popular at the first event.  Sew & Tell is not like other markets. Oh no we’re not! It’s about connecting people and getting the public involved!

Do you have any craft projects that you are not likely to finish any time soon? Like that Jenny Kee style jumper you have been trying to finish since the 80’s? Why not put them up for adoption on our Unfinished Business table? Just bring them along to Sew & Tell.

All items on the unfinished business stall are free and you don’t have to return to sender. All you have to do is promise to finish them off. We’d also love it if you could post a pic of the finished item on the Sew & Tell Facebook page.

The Free Stall was super popular at our first event and spread masses of goodwill around so we’re doing it again. Bring along any items that you’d like to donate - fruit, vegetables, herbs, chilli's, wool, threads, badges, crafty items etc.

Anyone can donate to the free stall. You just need to bring the donated item along to Sew & Tell and put it on the stall. Anyone can take these items, but if you do we encourage you to perform a random act of kindness for someone at some stage during the day – like buy a coffee for the person behind you.

Yes! The Man Cave is back! This is a space for the fellas to respite from the craft and vintage worship taking place in the rest of the hall. There'll be comfy seating and magazines to read.

Sew! We’ll be back soon with more info about our stalls and other crafty stuff. In the mean time check your cupboards for “Unfinished Business” and items for the Free Stall and most importantly…mark December 8 in your diary!
