The Craft & Quilt Fairs are Australasia’s premier craft events.

The fairs provide a complete craft experience: retailing the latest craft supplies; encouraging and teaching visitors to create projects in workshops; nurturing not-for-profit groups and guilds by providing exhibition space for organisations; showcasing craft talent through inspirational displays and guest artists; and providing the ultimate platform for transactions between businesses, teachers and visitors for months to come.
