The Holiday Bazaar is a collaborative event that is held at St. Francis once a year in November. The event is composed of an Italian dinner, a bake sale, a cookie walk, a raffle and
a craft fair. (No vendors)
Members of the parish use their individual talents to provide handmade items for sale at the bazaar. These talents may include baking, sewing, woodworking, painting, knitting, beading, etc.
Activities & Events:
In preparation for the bazaar, volunteers get together at St.Francis
to work on sewing or crafting projects with the supplies that are provided. Watch for dates and times to be published in the bulletin, or add your name to an email list so you can be personally notified of upcoming projects and events.
Totally flexible! You are invited to join us at the craft and sewing workshops located at St Francis. Enjoy the camaraderie and make new friends at these drop in sessions or you may pick up supplies and take them home to work on items at your own leisure.
New craft and sewing ideas are always welcome and appreciated throughout the year.
