Local crafters are coming together (in a virtual way!) to sell their wares and raise money for two charities which have been making a difference during the pandemic.

The KT Online Craft Fair, which runs until Sunday next week (August 2), will showcase the work of craft-makers from all over the community who live or work within the KT postcodes.

As well as providing a platform for selling unique gifts and home and eco-friendly products and information on the creatives, the fair will also raise money for the Berrylands Nature Reserve and the lifeboat charity, the RNLI.

“The crafting market has been thriving during lockdown with so many embracing the shopping small/local ethos,” said crafter and former retail analyst Katherine Savage of Treasure Kave, based in Berrylands.

“It’s great to see so many online craft fairs now emerging as ways to reach customers who would normally browse craft stalls locally.

“All brands are local brands and we’re a lovely community of diverse products all brought together based on where we live. We still can’t wait to actually meet people in person when we’re allowed to – hopefully soon!”

This is the second KT Online Craft Fair – the first was held while we were in lockdown in May – and showcases the work of three additional local crafters.

Kate Chambers, co-founder of Berrylands-based Paper & Cotton and owner of KT Online Craft Fair, said: “The initial fair was a taster for us all and, although it was a challenge, we have built up an amazing network of small businesses where we share invaluable tips and help support each other.”

Pottery, cosmetics, oil painting, screen printing, handmade cards, embroidery, crochet, paper crafts, hand designed pebbles, hand painted signs and jewellery are just some of the goods for sale, and to make it more convenient, the crafters can also deliver your purchases to your door if you live locally.
