  4. Craft fair and open UFO meeting!

    March 6, 2014 by Sarah

    This Saturday 8th March, 10am – 4pm, I’m at a craft fair in York town centre. It’s in a Pop-Up Space which has appeared for the month and has some great art work on display. It’s on Little Stonegate in between the back entrances to Brown’s and Laura Ashley. After the fair there’s the chance to dust off the cobwebs from all those incomplete craft projects you started with the best of intentions! Yes, the Golden Ball’s very own UFO (UnFinished Object) craft group are having an open meeting for anyone to pop along to. It’s in the Pop-Up Space from 4.30 – 6.30pm.
