*** CoviD-19 UPDATE - 2020 FIESTA CANCELLED ***
In these unprecedented and unpredictable times it is imperative that we look after our customers, our traders and ourselves so, to this end, it is with enormous sadness that we have to announce that this year's Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta is cancelled.
We will be back in 2021 so please make a note of the date in your diaries - Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th April 2021.
Take care of yourselves and each other.
Liz, Mina, Pat, Jeanne, Suzie, and Maggie xx
*** SAVE THE DATE ***
2021 Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta
Saturday 24th April, 10am to 5pm
Sunday 25th 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 & John Cropp, Pat Hanks, Suzie Aldous, Jeanne Craen, Maggie Grey 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 in 2017 and his unfailing support and good cheer is very much missed.
