Craft Fair 2014

A very big Thank You to all who contributed to this year’s Colllieston Craft Fair held on 15th November in the Kirk Centre in Ellon.  Thanks also to all who came along and supported the event.  Most of the money is now in and we have raised around £1,600 for the pier.  Not a bad effort!

Paula Hawthorn from Newburgh shared with us the story of KAZURI BEADS.  In Swahili Kazuri means small & beautiful.  Paula actively works through her church to raise money to help give a new life to abandoned babies in Kenya.  After a short presentation ladies had a try themselves at making their very own KAZURI bead necklaces  as well as trying on a selection of Kenyan scarves.
