The Best Craft Fair in Dorset

I’m delighted to be taking part in this year’s Dorset Team Etsy fair.  This will be my first time exhibiting my work publicly, so I’m very excited to be attending this event and having the opportunity to show my work.

The best Christmas Craft Fair in Dorset? We think so! For the third year running, the Dorset Team is delighted to be returning to the Allendale Centre in Wimborne for their annual Christmas fair. As in previous years, the fair will offer a fabulous selection of locally made art and craft: a wonderful opportunity to do all of your Christmas shopping under one roof.

The fair showcases the work of the “Dorset Team”, an ever-growing group of local small business owners who sell their wares online through the website The fair is officially supported by Etsy UK and once again coincides with Small Business Saturday, a day which encourages everyone to support small businesses across the UK.

There will be something for everyone at this fair, from handmade clothing and accessories, to ceramics, woodwork, artwork, jewellery and homewares, all of which have been made locally. The Etsy designer makers will be there to chat with you and tell you more about their products. Some will also be offering crafting supplies and DIY crafting kits, which make wonderful gifts. Many sellers are also offering a “Buy & Collect” service this year, meaning that you can purchase from them online and collect on the day.

The fair is a great way to support local small businesses, and to find unique and unusual gifts to tick off your Christmas list! Dorset Team Captain, Rachel, told us “It’s wonderful to be able to bring so many talented, local people together under one roof. Last year, the feedback from this event was amazing! Visitors commented about the fantastic quality and variety of goods available, and how friendly everybody was. We hope to repeat, and hopefully exceed, those experiences again this year!”.

Please put the date in your diary – Saturday 3rd December, 10am – 4pm – and come along to what we believe is the best Christmas Craft Fair in Dorset!

Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods. Makers across the UK sell on Etsy, and ‘Etsy Teams’ meet up all over the country to support each other in building their independent creative businesses.

The Dorset Team was formed on Etsy in 2012 and now has over 700 members and continues to grow. Membership is open to all Etsy sellers who are based in the county of Dorset.

The Christmas Fair is the third Christmas Fair that the Dorset Team have held in Wimborne. This year’s fair will coincide with Small Business Saturday

The Dorset Team Christmas Fair is at the Allendale Centre, Hanham Road, Wimborne, BH21 1AS, Saturday 3rd December, 10am – 4pm, Entry is Free.

I’ve recently made some bespoke items for exhibition display.

The first is a tri-fold padded noticeboard which sits on top of a table.  Decorated with ribbon and buttons, this makes the perfect place to display cards and photographs.
The noticeboard folds down for convenient transportation and storage.Pretty buttons and ribbon.
Handmade mini flag bunting was also made to co-ordinate with the noticeboard, together with a framed sailor’s unity knot.
The noticeboard is listed in my Etsy shop.  The boards are made to order and can be fully customised for different colour schemes. Matching mini flag bunting is available too x
