To all fellow Crafters

After 3 years of organizing craft events to help support an army of keen home crafters in and around the Essex area, Essex Real Craft Fayres has decided with great regret to close our doors. We can’t fully express our deep gratitude for your past support in our quest for all things crafty. Working with you all has been nothing but an absolute pleasure.
It is sad to say that along with the cost of changing times and the expense of Venus going up all the while, we can simply no longer keep up. We would like to make it very clear that Essex Real Craft Fayres was never a business engine for making profit. It is a fact that our intentions, desires, and drive have only ever been to help support you by way of getting you’re handmade crafts seen by the paying public.
Although we as an organizer charged a Stall/pitch fee, this fee collectively would only just about cover the outgoing costs of an actual event cost, and depending on the number of stalls sold would depict if we in actual fact out of pocket. We are not stating excuses, but rather to show our passion for crafting events, and that this passion has come at great cost to ourselves. However, no matter the cost we stand proud to have met so many of you wonderful crafters! So many amazing and talented people, it truly is our pleasure.
All monies owed to those who have booked with us for events that will no longer go ahead will of course be refunded in full. All we ask is for you to please be patient with us. Organising our records and be in direct contact with each and every one of you in turn.
We will continue to service you’re online shop or directory account and contact details within our website as normal. At some point in the near future we would hope to focus more on creating a full online market place. So this means that our online booking application is no longer in service. We will however activating our self-advertising application to enable Crafters to place their own ad banners on our website. This makes sense to do now as our website has a very large amount direct traffic to it.
If you would like you’re records or account information deleted from our database now that we no longer organise craft events, please notify us via the contact form on contact page of our website, and we will automatically delete your account information from our database unless notified otherwise.
Please contact us with any questions or comments using the contact form only. Our office phone line has now been disconnected. Our commitment to providing you the best service and support is still our top priority. Thank you again for all you’re support. We hope to be back soon.
Sincerely,
Essex Real Craft Fayres.
