General Information:


With the current advice from the Government concerning the Covid-19 virus and the need for social distancing etc, we have made the sad but necessary decision to cancel our Spring Craft Fair at Coggeshall on the 28th March.


This Spring Fair will have 30 makers and artists selling a variety of crafts to suit all pockets. Whether you’re looking for something new for the home; a beautiful piece of jewellery or some great gift ideas for friends and family, this will be the place to find unique, handcrafted items. Crafts include jewellery, wood-turning, chocolates, glass, cards, soaps, bags, pottery, prints and painting.

Local artist, Neil Higgs, who specialises in painting aviation, landscapes and animals, will be demonstrating at the event, as will Cathy Russell, who will be showcasing the intricate art of quilling.

Plum Fairy will be running the cafe, serving delicious tea & cake.

Cazza's Cards

My name is Carol Mitchell and I have been crafting for over 30 years. I started with cross stitch and knitting and moved on to card making about 10 years ago. I have been doing craft fairs, garden shows and dog shows with my cards all over Essex and just over the border into Suffolk for many years.

I enjoy making cards, and each one is different as I do not do two exactly the same. I enjoy the feedback from customers who contact me afterwards for bespoke orders.
