St. Christopher Mothers’ Club 45th Annual Holiday Craft Show
Saturday, November 11, 2017, 9am to 4pm
Welcome to the webpage of the St. Christopher Mothers’ Club Craft Show. 2017 marks the 45th year for our Craft Show. It is the largest fundraiser for St. Christopher. Our Craft Show not only showcases over 60 Crafters and Vendors, but we also have an adult and children’s raffle, bake sale (with our wonderful fresh baked bread) and a full kitchen. All of the proceeds benefit our school.
The 2017 Craft Show will be held on Saturday November 11th from 9:00 am to 4:00pm.
In order to participate in our Craft Show, all crafters’ work must be the original work of the exhibitor. We do not accept flea market, manufactured, or garage sale items. If you are a vendor, we will only accept one representative from each company. All applicants must submit pictures of the items being sold as well as their display. While this is not a juried craft show, we do review all applications as we want to ensure the show has a good variety of crafts and items being sold.
The registration fee is $35 and must be submitted with the application by October 30, 2017. Only checks and money orders will be accepted. Once accepted the registration fee is non-refundable. If your application is rejected your fee will be returned to you.
Thank you for your interest in our Craft Show. If you would like to participate in this year’s show please download the information packet along with the application. If you have any questions please email StChrisMothersClub@gmail.com.
