Shetland Craft Fair

Last weekend was the annual Shetland Craft Fair and we shared a stand with Shona. What fun it was...

The Craft Fair is organised by Shetland Arts and Crafts Association, an entirely voluntary-run group which not only does the Craft Fair but also the Craft Trail. This year the Fair was bigger than before and it was amazing to see the quality and diversity of craft and art on sale. Lots of textiles of course, it being Shetland but also jewellery, wood working and carpentry, music, painting... the list even includes food with the Food Fair taking place at the same time in the building. 

As if that wasn't enough, Yell's very own Coleen Thomson won Best Stand trophy for her display of jewellery. Congratulations Coleen.

Congratulations to the organisers and to everyone who took part. It was truly a showcase for the variety of talented people in Shetland.
