(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The WGO (Women's Guild in Oman) will organise its Summer Craft Fair at the Al Bahja Hall of Jungle restaurant in Qurm on Friday.

Sunaina Serna Ahluwalia, publicity coordinator, WGO, said, ''We hope to have 70-75 tables at the fair. Even non-members can book a table. All you have to do is to download the form from our website, fill it and hand it to our team at the weekly coffee morning on Wednesday at Left Bank restaurant in Qurm between 10am and 12 noon. All proceeds from this fair will go to charity.''

She said that the craft fair is held thrice a year showcasing the talents of WGO members and non-members. ''Our fairs bring crafters and bakers out of their homes and workshops and into the spotlight to celebrate all things handmade and homemade. Each fair highlights an array of both experienced and hobby designers producing one-of-a-kind and limited edition goods in a wide range of medium such as paper and fabric. You will find all types of commercial and handmade goods.

''Our participants combine new and traditional craft techniques with modern design to produce fresh, innovative work you won't find anywhere else. Expect to be wowed by fashion and jewellery designs, one-of-a- kind invitations and party items, delicious food, bath and body products, photography and paper goods - just to name a few.''

Sunaina said that she too has booked a table to sell the three books she wrote - A Safe Harbour, Point of No Return and An Autumn Melody. ''I will also use the opportunity to talk about my upcoming work of fiction, A Full Circle which is set in Oman and is a sequel to A Safe Harbour. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Oman Cancer Association and I will be working closely with them towards the launch.''

WGO craft fairs have played a pioneering role in the booming 'do it yourself' (DIY) craft movement. ''They are growing in popularity over the years. We are close to 2,000 members who come from over 80 countries. We haven't yet finalised the charity as that will be done at a later stage in the year. Over RO2,000 was raised at our last fair,'' Sunaina said.

The WGO has donated more than RO180,000 to various local causes since it was founded in 1
