2017 Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta
Saturday 22nd April, 10am to 5pm
Sunday 23rd April, 10am to 3.30pm
The Fiesta Committee is comprised entirely of volunteers who share a keen interest in textile crafts and want to help their local community:
Liz Cropp, Pat Hanks, Suzie Aldous, Frances Green, Jeanne Craen, Maggie Grey, Penny Bicknell, Paula Anderson and Mina Beckett.
We are indebted to our superb traders, exhibitors, demonstrators and visitors who contribute to the lively and friendly atmosphere at the event; to the WI for making and selling their fantastic cakes and providing a superb light refreshments service; to Brockenhurst Village Hall for their help in setting-up, clearing-up and generally helping us to make things go smoothly; and last, but by no means least, to our fabulous friends and family who help and support us with anything and everything from stewarding the car park to running us a hot bath and handing us a large glass of wine at the end of the event!
Finally, we would like to record our grateful thanks to our friend, webmaster and event photographer, Desmond Waight, whose fabulous photographs appear on this site. Desmond sadly passed away earlier this year and his unfailing support and good cheer will be very much missed.
