Avoid long queues and attend Christmas craft shopping evening

It will be a Christmas crafter-lovers delight tomorrow night at Alwyn Infant and Nursery School as the school is transformed into an emporium of hand-made Christmas goodies and unique gifts.

For one night only the school will play host to a selection of more than 30 local crafters, artisan and gift stalls to rival any weekend market.

With mulled wine, bubbly, mince pies and cakes on offer, shoppers and those looking to support local small business and craftspeople can enjoy an evening of festive fun and get some last minute Christmas shopping done without the hassle of crowds and high street prices.

The shopping event will feature stained glass gifts and decorations from Jane Parle, home-made fudge, iconic Doybag-style totes by Hollymoon Crafts, ethnic artisan crafts from around the world, ladies clothes and accessories, homewares, kids accessories and toys, handmade cards and homewares, Yolande Dennis jewellery, and some patchwork by Kate Fraser, Phoenix cards, Cat out of Hell clay jewellery and wreaths and table decorations for Christmas day plus many more stalls and services including photography, pampering and nail stamping.

Organisers are urging the crafting community to attend and pick up some unique Christmas gifts at the school in  Mulberry Walk, Oaken Grove Park in Maidenhead. The event starts at 7pm and finishes at 10pm. Tickets are £3 in advance or £4 on the door.
