Craft show set in Jonesville

JONESVILLE — Those seeking out last minute Christmas gifts or just looking for an opportunity to shop won’t have to look any farther than the Yadkin Valley Senior Center Saturday.

The Jonesville Historical Society will host the Yadkin Valley Craft Guild Christmas Craft and Gift Show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the senior center on Delos Martin Drive.

Proceeds from the show will help fund projects of the historical society as well as the 2016 Jonesville Jubilee celebration, reported Judy Wolfe, president of the society.

Wolfe said about 25 to 30 vendors will be set up selling everything from crafts to jewelry to home-based business products to collectibles.

This is the third year for the show, and while Wolfe said it has been held earlier in the season in previous years, with so many other activities going on, the society decided to try it closer to Christmas this year.

In addition to vendors, Santa Claus will be on hand from noon to 2 p.m., and parents should bring their own camera to take photos. Also, the Hot Dog Boy, who sells hot dogs in the parking lot of the Exxon on N.C. 67 beside Arby’s, will be at the show sharing his food.

“Mary Freas will be demonstrating and teaching those who want to sit at one of the looms, and some may want to sign up for a class,” she said.

Also, Richard Nance will be selling copies of his book series.
