Western Pocono Library holds holiday craft show

On Saturday the Western Pocono Library held its fundraiser craft show. The parking lot was filled and the shoppers packed the downstairs to see all the wonderful crafts on display while the vendors who rented the 67 spaces crossed their fingers for a prosperous day.

“The money raised by selling spaces will go to development and programing,” said Luanne Freeman, who has been the chairperson for this event since 2016.

If you didn’t mark the craft show on your calendar this year make sure you do for next year. The level of craftsmanship was amazing. The tables display painted wooden birdhouses, outdoor holiday decorations, as well as sparkly handmade jewelry, handmade quilts and many other eye catching items.

Sharon and Mike Boyd, owners of Sharing Stiches LLC, a quilting service, show some sample blocks to shoppers.
