Colwood church craft fair Nov. 15

Treasure trove of Christmas Crafts at the Church of the Advent

Christmas is coming, sooner than we all think.

Church of the Advent in Colwood hosts its 28th annual Christmas Craft Fair Nov. 15, promising another treasure trove of the finest arts and crafts from some of the finest artisans in the area.

“Our event builds the spirit and energy leading up to Christmas as we connect with all those local crafters,” said co-ordinator Donna Bramble. “It is about camaraderie … and sharing the event and the day with people.”

The Colwood event features local crafters showing off woodworking, knitting, home baking, jewelry, preserves and more Christmas-themed goodies as a fundraiser for the church, which Bramble has attended for more than 40 years.

For people looking for seasonal hand-crafted items from a wide swath of homemade and traditional fare, she encouraged visitors to discover the Christmas Craft Fair for themselves.

Church of the Advent is at 510 Mount View Ave. The fair goes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with lunch and afternoon tea starting at 11 a.m.
