Avalon Craft Cottage members are, this year, celebrating the 50th Birthday of the Craft Cottage…. which is a huge milestone for a local craft group.
We began, in 1969, in a little shop in the middle of Avalon (on the Northern Beaches of Sydney) . Sadly, the little shop is no more, but , 50 yrs on the group is still as active as ever and still producing the high quality craftwork that the members are known for. Many of our members have been with the group for 20, 30, 40 years…. and one of our original founding members, Jenny Fraser, is still with the group …. her work is still beautiful, she’s just not as prolific as before. The Avalon Craft Cottage has a very strict quality control, so that you know that everything that is on display is well-made and of the highest quality.
The Craft Cottage members will be celebrating with a big party in October to celebrate the opening day of the shop, but in the meantime this year we have six great stalls which the members are all working hard towards.
The second of these stalls will be at St Ives Shopping Village, where we open on Monday, 29th April … and we look forward to catching up with as many of our customers as possible. We will be right outside Priceline, just across from the bottom of the travelator, and will be there all week. There will be hundreds of beautifully hand-crafted gifts & homewares on display, and we would love you to call in, have a look, and chat to the clever members who have made all the items on display.
And, have a look at our Facebook page for up-to-date photos of many of the items on show.
