crafters-st-ives

Saints Crafters is a group of artists and crafters from in and around the St Ives & St Neots areas. We get together at the Free Church Hall in St Ives once a month (usually the first Saturday of the month) to hold a craft fair where we sell our handmade creations and exchange ideas about our crafts. Our crafts & skills are diverse and varied and include textile art, beadwork, patchwork and appliqué, card making, silver jewellery, candle and soap making, china painting, gemstone jewellery, knit wear, encaustic art and drawing, stained and fused glass and origami brooches.

Saints Crafters has been established for 5 years. We operate a membership scheme for anyone wanting to join us and sell their work through the monthly craft fairs. The main criteria for becoming a member is that each piece of work sold by the artist/crafter must be at least 90% hand crafted by that individual. We also have spaces available for guest crafters who may only want to attend the occasional fair.

Our customers get the opportunity to buy original, quality handmade goods direct from the person that made them. We don’t have the costly overheads of high street stores and galleries so we are able to offer our work at affordable prices. Customers can talk direct to the artist or crafter and find out how the piece was made and the inspiration behind it. Many of the stall holders also take on commissions for bespoke work.

We also support local charities by providing a table and prizes for a tombola to help them raise funds. The local charities that we support are the Huntingdon Society for the Blind and Dreamdrops.
