Market Harborough WI held their first ever craft fair today!  Another great first and held in our town’s landmark Old Grammar School.  Thanks to all concerned for their hard work, especially Patsy, Evanda, Virgina, Fiona, Ann and Sarah who braved the cold and made fantastic sales on the cake and “shop-in-a-box” stalls.

Talking of cakes!  A huge thank you for all the donations!  The quantity and the quality was amazing.

We would also like to thank all the ladies from other WI’s that supported the event.  Melton Afternoons, Charnwood WIgs and Cam City helped make the event and we hope they were pleased with their sales.  It was a great event to share ideas and support each other and we hope to do more of this in the future.
