Entry £2 for Adults, which includes a free raffle ticket. Crafty young things under 16 Free Entry.
The Rag Market is a twice yearly event run by Hebden Bridge WI to raise funds for our Charity of the Year which this year is Yorkshire Air Ambulance. It also pays for an Educational Bursary which is offered to members of the Hebden Bridge Branch in keeping with the Women's Institute's aims in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills.
Afte 13 years of Rag Markets, with entry at just £1, we have had to move with the times. Due to increasing costs, and the desire to raise much needed funds for our chosen charities, we have increased entry to £2. This gives you access to all venues and includes a free raffle ticket, for the opportunity to win a great prize form one of our local makers or fabulous independent shops.
Our Rag Market has to be the perfect place to source not only a bargain, but original and quality crafting, dress making and tailoring materials buttons, ribbons, yarn, vintage pieces, patterns, books and anything else you could possibly need to inspire your creativity! Many of the fabrics are vintage, one offs and from private collections so you can pick up many items that are not available in the shops for amazing prices. Our stall holders are generally crafters themselves, reluctantly selling items from a treasured hoard that has become too large to store, but some of our regular stallholders also include local small businesses selling beautiful (Yorkshire!) woven wool tweeds, plaid fabrics & furnishing and a stall selling a wide selection of vintage buttons.
