Fall Craft Fair!

We invite you to shop for a cause.

Delight everyone on your Christmas list with a handmade gift from Westminster Canterbury Richmond’s Fall Craft Fair. We plan to tempt you with a wide display of treasures created by residents, staff and community crafters. The holidays are closer than you think, so join us for a head start on shopping.

“Our Fall Craft Fair is one of the longest running events in the area and has been a tradition since 1975. We have over thirty vendors this year, selling a wide variety of handmade items including pottery, baby clothes, Christmas décor, monogrammed items, baked goods, soaps, jewelry, stained glass and paintings,” says Lauren Nash, Visual Arts & Programs Coordinator. “There are several residents that have booths at the fair. There is also a small crafts group that makes Christmas ornaments, cards, pins and other items to sell.”

Organized by the Fall Craft Fair Residents’ Committee, there are many other special offerings including pottery, Temari balls, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and engraved wooden boxes. Longtime favorites such as woven, smocked and crocheted items along with stationery, cards and coloring books will be featured. New this year is an expanded selection of food items.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available at the Azalea Mall parking lot, and a shuttle will run continuously to the Fair entrance. The Fair is November 4 and 5, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday. The Fair will be located in the Cochrane Commons, Center Lobby and H. Scott November Gallery.

Patronizing our Fall Craft Fair will likely yield a treasure or two, but more importantly, proceeds help provide services to our most vulnerable residents through our Fellowship Program.
