Those wanting a one-stop place to find a homemade gift this Christmas are in for a treat, with the Tasmanian Makers and Creators Festival on Saturday.
Organised by WAYFM, the Launceston Conference Centre event is set to feature more than 60 craft stalls of all kinds, ranging from soaps, candles, glass wear, baby clothes and much more, with the focus being on Tasmanian made goods.
WAYFM chairman Scott Hudson said the festival was the last of the four craft events they hold each year, with the upcoming event having a Christmas theme.
"It's a great opportunity for people to come and grab something for a Christmas present and it's a wonderful time for everyone to celebrate the festive season," he said.
"The heart of the event is that we showcase the best creators and makers from Northern Tasmania.
"This event has been happening for three years and this is our second event at the Launceston Conference Centre, which is such a great open space."
Mr Hudson said the stalls on display would showcase many creative local businesses that people may not be aware of.
"One of my favourites is a lady that sells purple garlic products, which are incredible and another lady who grows the most amazing cacti," he said.

The day will also feature food stalls and vans with Turkish, Lebanese and Dutch food and a barbecue, as well as a lucky door raffle.
The festival is one of the main ways in which WAYFM raises funds, as they are a non for profit, listener-supported radio station.
The Tasmanian Creators and Makers Festival will run from 9am to 3pm.
Entry is free.
