October 28, 2015 E. Alstead, NH: The Orchard School and Community Center is a place where children are encouraged to express their individuality through the arts. Because the arts are so deeply valued by the community, it’s no surprise that The Orchard School Benefit Craft Fair is their biggest fundraiser each year. This year, TOS is proud to be organizing the twentieth occurrence of the beloved fair. The craft fair is juried for the highest quality vendors so local residents feel good about supporting the school and local artists; all while getting their holiday shopping done early.
The fair will be held at The Walpole Town Hall, Walpole, NH on Friday, November 20, from 6-8:30pm and Saturday, November 21 from 9:30am-3:30pm.
A sampling of the crafted work includes: silver jewelry, wool items, handmade wooden toys and crafts, pottery, fine beaded jewelry, traditional straw ornaments, flannel & wool shirts & dresses, woodwork, metal work, carvings and more – and all of it made within 40 miles of our Fall Mountain Region! Vendors include some favorites from previous years as well as some exciting new talent. For a complete list of vendors, visit www.TheOrchardSchool.org/ community-events/crafts-fair-and-cafe/
