about us

The Association of Blairgowrie Craftworkers (ABC) was formed in 1987 by a few individuals who, making crafts at home as a hobby, wanted an outlet and so organised a craft fair. Since then the number of members has grown and includes many active craftworkers making a diverse range of handmade crafts such as ceramics, jewellery, textiles, soaps, photography and woodwork.

Some members do their crafting as a hobby and others as part of their own business and make sales online and through their websites. You can find out more at members sales.

Is your product handmade and different to our existing members?

Is your product finished to a high standard?
