Craft comes alive for hobbyists at three-day expo featuring 60 exhibitors | Photos

Sixty stalls exhibiting and selling materials for quilting, scrap booking, felting, embroidery and a whole range of crafts set up at the Orange Function Centre for Craft Alive from Friday to Sunday.

This is the third year the three day event has come to Orange and it is the second time Orange exhibitor Jennifer Goldsmith from Frazzy Dazzles has set up her stall to showcase her soft toys and sell patterns.

Craft Alive also gave Janelle Linklater from Blayney an opportunity to find volunteers to make patches to be made into quilts for the Challenge charity, which helps children who are hospitalised with a life threatening disease.

Event manager Rachael Karpman said Friday went well and plenty of people came through on Saturday morning with attendance up on last year. 

On Sunday there will also be free entry for guild members who are wearing their membership badges.

Anyone from a not-for-profit organisation can also enter for free on Sunday if they have proof of membership.
