First Congregational Church is hosting a H.O.M.E. Craft Fair in Old Greenwich
in the First Congregational Church Auditorium, 108 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich:
- November 19, 2016, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
- November 20, 2016, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
The Annual H.O.M.E. Craft Fair brings a wide array of artisan goods and food products from rural Maine to Old Greenwich on November 19 and 20.
This traditional Fall event features handmade quilts, Christmas decorations and gifts, woolens, pottery, wooden toys, weavings, homemade jams, maple syrup, and much, much more from rural Hancock County.
“I always find unique handmade items at very affordable prices,” said Chris Hartwell, Chair of the Council at First Church, which has been sponsoring the Craft Fair for over 20 years. “My favorites are the quilts, and cloth dolls for my nieces and nephews. But I rarely see anyone leaving the fair without having found something special.”
The artisan goods are produced by Homeworkers Organized for More Employment (“H.O.M.E.”), a craft co-operative working with the rural poor. H.O.M.E.’s efforts to help those in need include the operation of a free clinic, a soup kitchen and food bank, homeless shelters, learning center with daycare, literacy and GED tutoring, alternative high school and college-level programs, and job and craft training. All proceeds from the Craft Fair go directly to H.O.M.E.
