The Friends of Blue Hill Public Library is looking for knitters, weavers, potters, woodworkers—all sorts of craftspeople to help raise money to buy holiday gifts for local children in need. Last year’s fundraiser featured beautiful, locally knitted mittens for sale and was very successful. This year the group plans to offer an expanded range of handcrafted items.
Starting on November 7 and continuing through December 10, the library’s downstairs counters will display and offer for sale items donated by local craftspeople. To keep things simple, there will be only two price categories: either $25 or $45. The public may buy works at any time, and items will continue to be added to the display as they become available. Sales will continue until December 10th, when the gifts for the children will be purchased and donated to the Tree of Life Food Pantry and the Emmaus Center in Ellsworth. For more information call the Library at 374-5515.
