Save the Date: 2021 Holiday Art & Fine Craft Show!
We are returning to the CREC for our Holiday Art & Fine Craft Show on November 13 and 14th from 10AM to 5PM each day!
With more than 60 juried artisans offering high quality, handmade, one-of-a-kind artwork in a variety of media, this is a great opportunity to get some holiday shopping done – and support small, local businesses at the same time. The handcrafted work of our Juried Artists includes: Basketry, Ceramics, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Mixed Media, Painting, Paper Craft, Photography, Sculpture, Wood … and so much more!
November 13th & 14th from 10AM to 5PM

We had a great time at this years Birthday celebration, even if it was scaled back. Even what small progress we make in getting back together again is encouraging!
Unfortunately, COVID will still be throwing us a few curveballs along the way. We are exploring ways that we can make it easy (or at least as easy as possible) to know if we’ll be in-person or via Zoom, and as soon as we have that plan, we’ll be sharing it with you.
We will continue to communicate via MailChimp when it is necessary (although we do try to not send out too many emails in a month), so please also keep an eye on the homepage of our website, our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/HaverfordGuildOfCraftsmen) and in our members-only Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/256061655453713).
And for those who find travel at night tricky, we are going to continue our plans with working out how to integrate Zoom with our in-person meetings. We loved having so many of our further-flung and long time friends join us!
Planning is in full swing for our Fall show, and we could use some help! We’re busy securing sponsorships and advertisers and we’ll be printing the postcards soon, but we still need lots more help! One does not have to be a member of the HGC in order to volunteer – everyone is welcome. You can sign up on SignUp Genius here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4BA4A729A2F94-20212
Please, please, please consider helping out – even if you are not in the show yourself. Our show is actually twice as long this time, so we really need all the help we can get to make it a success!
What about COVID-19?
Yes, this virus is a royal pain in the dupa, but it’s not going away as soon as we hoped. So we still have to be vigilant. Because the situation changes almost on a daily basis, we’re not going to make any major calls –yet– but be prepared. We may mandate masks for everyone, vaccinated or not. We have to talk to the people in charge over at the CREC and see what the conditions are closer to the date of the show before we make any decisions.
Thank you all and we’ll see you soon!
Christine Wright, President
