In The German House on Gregory Street and at St. Boniface Church there will be over 50 local crafters in a brand new craft fair called “A Handmade Holiday“. It is free to attend, and the first 50 people will get a beautiful canvas event swag bag! We will also have event t-shirts for sale at Little Button Craft & Press.

On a personal note, I encourage you visit this adorable little shop year-round. I just started selling my hand stitched paper ornaments there. I took them a flock of my sweet little white songbirds with gold or silver metalic thread stitched wings, with more to come.

Follow the store on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest!
