Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta Committee, 4th December 2017
A BIG THANK YOU!
Hopefully you were able to join us in which case you'll know that the 2017 Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta was a fantastic success.
We had more than 1,250 visitors over the two days (some making the journey from more than 100 miles away) and a colourful array of traders and exhibitors, to say nothing of the WI's cakes of epic proportion!
As you may know, the Fiesta is a not-for-profit event raising much needed funds for the benefit of the local community and textile groups. We are delighted to say that following this year's event we have been able to make donations totalling almost £4,000 so please accept our heartfelt thanks for helping to raise this amount.

Looking Ahead to Next Year
The 2018 Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta is on Saturday 21st April 2018 (10am - 5pm) and Sunday 22nd April 2018 (10am - 3.30pm).

Mailing List Prize Draw
Many thanks to those who entered our email mailing list prize draw to win a copy of Maggie Grey's fantastic book, "Long Diaries, Tall Tales".
Our winner was Mrs Toni Brannon from Gosport in Hampshire who told us:
"Other half and I enjoyed our visit. I bought some home spun yarn and a kit for making a thimble cover. My husband also bought some French buttons with animals on which have now been sewn onto a Harris tweed waistcoat that my niece is making for my husband and they look great. Winning the book is an added bonus that is much appreciated".
Thanks again for your support of our fabulous Fiesta... We're looking forward to seeing you next year!
