Crafters get ready for Holiday Bazaar

'Happy Hands' at Merryspring

Two more weeks to volunteer and help
Posted:  Thursday, November 15, 2012 - 12:00pm

Happy crafters are meeting every Wednesday afternoon this month at 2 p.m. in the craft studio at Merryspring to prepare items for Merryspring's Annual Holiday Bazaar to be held Saturday, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of craft projects: making bows, swags, table arrangements, and birch bark ornaments; decorating wreaths, bundling greens, filling bags with potpourri and balsam; creating nifty things with natural materials; or developing some special unique decorations for the Bazaar. Contributions of kitchen creations, for which they have various jars and packaging materials, are also needed.

Even if you can't stay for the workshops, you can even choose a project and take the materials home to work at your leisure. There are also two big bulletin boards full of creative ideas for you to choose from.

Join the fun and give Merryspring a "happy hand."
