Preparing for the annual christmas fair

Every year a group of women in my community put together an amazing christmas fair, a big raffle where one can win wonderful handmade products. The theme is of course christmas, but we also makes products that can be used all year around. We receive things bought in shops from people as well, and have separate raffles for the kids.

The production goes on all year, and we meet up every month in the fall. It is always nice to work together.

The money we make on this annual event is put in to the community again through many different projects, such as pedicure and trips for the elders, an annual school lunch for the children, donations and so on. A great event that brings the community together.

Have fun sewing!

  2. Oh wow, pleased to know about the annual Christmas fair. I am sure it was fabulous. At the rooftop event space San Francisco we also had attended an amazing Xmas wedding party. It was a small ceremony but was much enjoyable. We enjoyed every moment of their special day.
