Welcome to our Virtual Craft Market!

Over the weekend of Friday 11th to Sunday 13th December, you will be able to browse and buy a range of handmade items and craft supplies from local independent sellers over on our Virtual Craft Market Facebook group. Pick up some great handcrafted gifts, a treat for yourself, or even some arty supplies to keep you busy with a new project over the festive period!

It’s more important than ever to support independent local businesses, as we all make our way through the current difficult situation as best we can.

Market opening at 9am on Friday 11th December 2020!

How it works

First off, join the Virtual Craft Market Facebook group and invite all your friends! Over the next few weeks, the virtual stall-holders will introduce themselves and might post little tidbits to give you a taste of what will be on offer at the market.

At 9am on Friday 11th December the market will “open” and the sellers will start posting their products on the Discussion tab. A photo album for each seller will also go live on the Media tab showing a whole range of their items.

If you have any questions or wish to purchase an item, all you need to do is comment on the post/photo, or contact the seller through direct messaging. You and the seller can then arrange payment, delivery, personalisation options etc. directly. Please note that Braintree Community Centre will not be involved in any transactions.

The market will remain active until 5pm on Sunday 13th December, after which there will be no new posts. However, you will still be able to browse everything that was posted over the course of the market and view the sellers’ photo albums even after the market has closed – and make contact with sellers to purchase.

All transactions are strictly between the customer and the seller – Braintree Community Centre bears no responsibility for payment, delivery, or the goods themselves.

Hi, I am a self taught quilter and this is my hobby. I love producing quilts and I find it extremely therapeutic, especially after a long week at work.

I am more than happy to take orders and these can be personalised if required.

I am also now looking at car accessories as well, such as dog beds/mats as well as seatbelt pads again, all can be personalised.
