Several Churches and organizations are holding craft shows in October and residents looking for one of a kind creations won’t want to miss any of them.
Coral Springs Craft Guild “Holiday Boutique & Craft Fair”
One of the most well-known and celebrated fall craft events in South Florida is the annual Coral Springs Craft Guild Fall/Holiday Show. Known throughout the tri-county area for its outstanding quality of craftsmanship, this year’s 37th rendition entitled “Holiday Boutique & Craft Fair” will be held on Friday, October 10, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturday, October 11, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the La Quinta Inn, 3701 N. University Drive, Coral Springs.
The show will feature limited editions, unique Christmas ornaments and decorations, a wide range of fall and Halloween offerings, home décor & giftware, repurposed art work, and much more.
The purpose of the Coral Springs Craft Guild has always been to improve and uphold the quality of handcrafted items sold in the area, stimulate creativity in design and use of materials, provide an outlet for the exhibition and sale of the members’ unique crafts, enhance fellowship within the local crafting community, and interact with the community through scholarships and service projects. The group meets the third Wednesday of each month at Cypress Hall at Cypress Hammock Park, 1300 Coral Springs Drive, Coral Springs.
Actively involved in community service since its inception in 1977, the Craft Guild will be charging an entry fee for Friday evening of 3 canned goods or $3. The canned goods will be donated to the Blessings Food Bank. The funds collected are designated for scholarship. A local high school student receives a scholarship each year based on submitted portfolios and a winner is selected to receive funds. Admission for the show on Saturday is free, but additional donations will be accepted throughout the show as well.
