I'm from Newfoundland too! However, I'm currently living in Calgary.

As far as craft fairs go, I think they happen more often than you think. In St. John's, it's best to check with the Newfoundland Craft Council.

Other than that, in rural areas you'll have to probably look a little harder.

Thanks
Im in Gander and believe me theyre hard to come by. Unless i become a member of every church going or pay $100 a day for a table in the mall, im pretty much out of luck.

Im moving to St Johns in the fall though and im extreamly excited at the amount of crafty resources there.. cant wait to get started!

I'm here too! Right now I'm home for the summer on the Burin Peninsula, but I'll be back in town for September. I haven't done any craft fairs or anything, but I know they have that Christmas at the Glacier thing every year... Worth looking into?

I live here too  Cheesy
Just a note, keep your eyes peeled for events at MUN. For example, the Women's Resource Centre puts off an International Women's Day Fair (March 8th) and invites female owned businesses, individuals and groups to come and set up for the day.
I sold stuff there last year.

There are also some people who sell crafts in the Avalon Mall on Sundays... it is sort of a hodge-podge of things going on (flea market, etc.) and I am not sure how much the tables cost but I'm sure you could find out if you called the mall.

Hi all! I've browsed the craftser website many times and when I saw that there was a topic posted about crafting in Newfoundland, I had to sign up.  Currently I am living in St. John's, but I am from the South Coast originally.  I love to craft, sewing is my favorite.  I sold some things at the International Women's Day Fair at MUN last winter as well, and I've also hosted a table at the Avalon Mall Flea Market a few times.  There is a flea market held at the Village Mall every Sunday, too.  I haven't visited it yet but plan to do so soon and hopefully host a table there as well.   Well I just wanted to say 'hi' and let you know that there is one more Newfie Craftster in existence.  Do any of you sell your items in the St. John's area?

Hi guys! I'm from Newfoundland, too. I'm living in St. john's now to go to school and I work in the Avalon mall. The flea markets on Sundays are ok but it seems like a lot of the same things are repeated.
I don't usually make many things-just some reconstructed clothes or purses. I juts go on this site for hours at a time, get a million ideas, and then never really finish everything. But I love this site though.....and I'm happy that I'm not the only newfie. Smiley
