The Harvest Craft Fair is Coming! Save the date – October 15, 2016

harvest-craft-fair-collageThe Harvest Fair Committee is gearing up with preparations for the 115th First Parish Harvest Craft Fair, one of our biggest annual fundraisers. The Craft Fair is a fun and festive event enjoyed by FPS folks and many in our surrounding communities.

Over 60 juried crafters sell their handmade goods at our Craft Fair. There are hand-knitted sweaters, beautiful jewelry, ceramics, paintings, hand blown glass items, photography, original art, and many one-of-a-kind items.

We also sell jams and jellies and baked goods from the kitchens of our parishioners.  These are always popular items and sell out.  This is a great way for you to contribute to First Parish.  If you can bake ANYTHING – cookies, brownies, pies, cakes, bread – we can sell it.  There is no need to sign up.  Just bring your baked goods and preserves to the church on Friday Oct. 14 between 3 and 8 PM or Saturday morning before 9:30 AM.

Then there is our famous soup luncheon with a great selection of delicious soups and breads.  If you can make a big pot of soup, we would love to sell that as well.  Please contact Sheila Davison with any questions regarding soup and helping in the kitchen.

And, of course, we need volunteers for set-up, help during the Fair, and clean-up. Please contact Heather Merrill.  Watch for the Sign Up Genie from Heather and sign-up sheets in the Parish Hall during coffee hour. We need you to help make the fair fun and successful.

Be sure the date is marked on your calendar. Bring family and friends for lunch, to enjoy the fun, and to get a start on your holiday shopping!
