The White Haven Area Community Library will host their 7th annual Holiday Quilts & Crafts Show on Saturday, December 2 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The event will be spread over two venues within walking distance: the historic DeWitt Homestead, a restored Victorian home circa 1875 located at 231 Wilkes-Barre Street, and the White Haven Area Community Library, located in the historic railroad Engine House at 121 Towanda Street in White Haven.
Demonstrations of hand quilting by Kathy Oross, fiber spinning by Carol Pirolli, felting by Lesley McDermott and Linda Kistler, and wood crafting by Liam’s Luck Wood Crafts will be featured.
A wide assortment of beautiful, interesting, or old quilts, loaned by area residents will be on display. The Eckley Quilters will also display handmade quilts created to honor local history.
Local crafters and artisans will be offering hand sewn goods, knit and crochet items, pins, wood crafts, candles, soaps, paper goods, pet products, wreaths and floral arrangements, chocolate lollipops, glassware, photography, and many more items for your holiday shopping pleasure.
Refreshments of hot cider and cookies will be served. A concession stand offering homemade halushki, hot dogs and seasonal treats will be located at the Engine House. Delicious baked goods will be available for sale, Holiday Gift Basket raffle tickets and tickets for a Quilt raffle will be available for sale at both sites.
