The Cary Blanketeers at Craft Show – November 16

Need stocking stuffers? Teacher gifts? Secret Santa treats? Or just creative inspiration?

Come to the Cary Senior Center Craft Show from 9-3pm on Saturday, November 16th at Bond Park (High House Road near Cary Parkway across from St. Michael’s Church). The Cary Blanketeers will have a booth featuring whimsical candy bars, crocheted necklaces, cupcake pincushions, disappearing tote bags, beautiful blankets and hundreds of handcrafted hats and scarves. Most items will be priced under $10 with many offered for $3 or less. Proceeds will be used to buy yarn and fleece to make more blankets.

The Cary Blanketeers meet twice a month and new members are always welcome. Stop by the craft show to say “hello” and show your support for Project Linus. Admission is free.
