Not sure what to get your loved ones for Christmas? Do you love crafts and everything handmade? If so, our annual Holiday Craft Fair is the perfect festive event to see our residents show off their various handmade crafts they’ve created over the past year and enjoy some unique holiday shopping.
Our annual fair was held on December 6th and featured knitted and hand-sewn items – hats and scarves made by members of our weekly Stitch and Chat group – arts and crafts, holiday decorations and ornaments, and necklaces and bracelets created during our weekly Jewelry Class.
This year even contained calendars featuring pictures taken by a world-traveled resident photographer, oil-based canvas paintings and even homemade baked goods ranging from cookies to fudge. One of our vendors is notorious for bringing wood crafts and etchings she makes each year, which are perfect for gardens or Christmas tree ornaments.
You can see the effort and love that the residents put in making their products. Talking to the resident vendors and really understanding the story behind their product is something you can’t do every day.
