Ingo Chat with Lyndsay about QUEER FAYRE

Lyndsay chat Queer FayreQueer Fayre is Wotever World’s crafts market/indoor boot-sale for and by queers, where many meet and sell their ware and collections.

 Lindsay is a regular contributor at Queer Fayre and over the years we’ve met at many Wotever events, but Queer Fayre stays a firm favourite for her, she says, because it’s community, friendly, daytime and accessible, and with great opportunities to meet up with and make friends with people of all ages.

 Lindsay, a keen vintage collector of all things queer, has been to pretty much all of them since the start, and she always has a great story to tell about the items on her table. 

 Queer Fayre is also a highlight for Rainbow Families, as kids are allowed, it is dog friendly when at RVT and used as a social meeting spot for many during the daytime. And, as Lindsay says, “a perfect place to pick up great gifts made by the people selling it.” 

 Queer sellers for queer buyers. And over the years we have seen all sorts of craft you rarely see elsewhere. 

 Queer Fayre is held regularly at Royal Vauxhall Tavern, and has recently launched at Hackney Attic. 

Our next event is at RVT, Saturday 7 May, between 1-6pm.

Handicraft and Vougeing

For you who do not know me Ingo, who run Queer Fayre and Wotever… I’m coming from North of Sweden where Handicraft is/was a lifestyle and a way of living… You Create what you need and use. I myself know how to knit, make pottery, am a silversmith and can sew. Skills I learnt as young. My mum is a keen knitter and her socks are the best as many of my friends know as she knits and send to them. My dad does woodwork, boxes and clever stuff, made all out of wood…

Here is a new video combining the best of what I like about this ArtForm. Crafty, Fabulous stuff created by from good sources, used in unique and Spectacular ways.

Never Ever have I been more happy to see a video on a friends timeline.

Thank You Christine Bylund (also brought up near where I grew up – but about 20 years later – now part of the running of Wotever Stockholm with Josephine Krieg)!


 

 

A few years back I started Queer Fayre here in London, both as an alternative Day Time, more family friendly day event. But also to show case Craft, and give space for Crafty people within our community.

Clever Queer People coming up with clever Queer Craft!

fingrpuppies by HannahPerfect for the Modern Queer in all our shapes and forms; Cards for all occasions, Happy Beard Day for the mate who has started Testosterone and finally have one, ‘Suck my Clit’ Panties for the outgoing Vagina wearing player. Hand creams, Lip balm, Fingerpuppies for the rainbow family…. We have seen a big variety of craft you simply can not find anywhere else…

Jo at Queer Fayre

It’s a celebration of Recycled clothes, books and music… Like whate every new/young queer need to know and own… Books to read… The amount of times people have squeeled of happiness finding leathertrousers in their size for a tenner, the book – long out of print but still on Universities reading lists… That replacement album of Barbara Streisand that your ex took in the move…..

 

All those things have and will continue to happen at Queer Fayre.

It is aa very relaxed Saturday packed with sweet things, like all our favourite Butch Jam, from The Butch Institute! It’s a Must!
