Quaama Spring Fair is on Saturday 18 October

A quick update about the Quaama Spring Fair on Saturday 18 October, from 9am

Angela Bell of Raw Elements Studio will be bringing a clever machine that cleans your jewellery and makes repairs. Plus she has rings for sale.

And the lovely Helen Morris from Artspace in Bermi will be helping the kids with painting on real canvases… we’ve got some small canvases and they will be perfect for the kids to make an artwork for mum for Christmas, or dad…

The Community table has beautiful hand made toys and handbags… gluten free muesli. .. local olives and garlic.

On the verandah we’ve got:

  • Roger from the Men’s Shed,
  • Fire Brigade with Fire Ready
  • someone from the Animal Welfare League,
  • musical duo Alan and Rob,
  • musicians Zoe & Patrick singing
  • the Tai Chi demo on the lawn beneath, and;
  • Geoff Southam the fourth generation cheesemaker – with samples!
  • Probably more too.

A minor change to the program – Skye at Life’s Little Pleasures in Cobargo will be doing the fashion parade and is looking forward to her clothing getting a showing on actual bodies… it’s really great gear for dance, by the way.

Pauline Balos artLocal painter Pauline Balos has provided a series of paintings to auction, mainly women’s faces (see left). They would make great Christmas gifts. They range in size from 25 x 25 cm to 60 x 60 cm. You’ll have the chance to purchase these beautiful paintings at bargain prices! View them, and make an offer, in the foyer – any unsold will go to auction at 1.45pm, after the parade.

Enter the cooking competition – categories are Egg Dishes and Preserves. Bring your entries by 10.30am – voting by People’s Choice starts 11am.

See you there – and don’t forget to come early for a quaamalicious Bacon & Egg Roll (9.00-10.30am only)!

Yes it’s on again.  The Quaama Spring Fair is on Saturday 18 October, 9am-2pm at the Quaama School of Arts Hall. Dress up in your best Spring gear and head to Quaama for a celebration of Community and Spring-time.

Expect to find a variety of delicious foods… from the Quaama Quisine kitchen’s Egg-and-Bacon Rolls (9.00-10.30am only) to the regular BBQ prepared with local meats, to an array of home and professional style baked goods to take home or enjoy in the grounds of welcoming old Quaama School of Arts. Get creative with EGGS – cook up your favourite (cold) dish – submit it to the Quaama Quisine fundraising kitchen – you may win a prize for your creative efforts!

Stretch out with Tai Chi during the morning, chill out with a massage, and then re-energise with a fresh-made espresso coffee! Throughout the day, musicians and singers will entertain you; a roundup of community groups will keep you up to date with who’s who and what’s happening! There will be a fourth generation cheese-maker sharing his craft and an opportunity to register for an upcoming cheese-making course.

Fancy hat - Restoration Celebration

‘Little Birdie’ from Cobargo will be parading her delightful and much sought after vintage fashions!

Take the opportunity to have a tarot reading with Janastro, explore the market place – shop for Christmas gifts, stock up on fresh veggies and plants and seedlings for your Spring garden.

For the children – a creative place for making Spring crafts – butterflies, bees, blossoms and birds – exhibit and parade your crafted treasures!
Competition categories (for everyone) are:

  • Best Dressed Spring Hat,  and
  • Preserves and Egg Dishes – anything cold from a Hollandaise sauce to a Pavlova. Just bring them along on the day.

Voting starts at 11am.

Anyone can book a market stall or avail themselves of the verandah space to speak about their current passion, or demonstrate your talent, skill or business enterprise.

The Quaama Spring Fair is hosted by the Quaama Progress Association as an aspect of our mission to support and enhance local community life… so please join us in celebrating Spring on 18 October at the Quaama School of Arts.
