NOVEMBER 11th and 12th, the second weekend in November, the Elko Community will be treated to another GREAT EVENT by the LAMOILLE WOMEN’S CLUB. The FALL CRAFT FESTIVAL organized by Martha Wallace and Elisabeth Moore is held at Spring Creek High School Gymnasium on Highway 227 (Lamoille Highway) which is less than 10 minutes from Elko proper. Saturday’s hours are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Sunday’s hours are 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. This fall/winter event is sponsored by the Lamoille Women’s Club, who volunteer their time and talents to improve the communities of Lamoille, Spring Creek and Elko. Proceeds for all their projects and events are reinvested in the community that includes scholarships for high school seniors and college students, Harbor House residents, Volunteer Fire Departments, 911 Fund, Hospice, The Elko County Fair, CADV, Lamoille Post Office and Church, and the Veterans.
This year the Event Coordinators are excited to once again have the Gingerbread House Showcase at their Fall Craft Festival. The following Businesses have graciously agreed to make gingerbread houses to promote the Festival: The Gold Dust, Tomatoes, the Hilton Garden Inn, the Senior Citizens Center, Donuts ‘N Mor, Smorens Delites and several others are pending. All these organizations are community minded and giving. The Vendors will judge the Gingerbread Houses. Several of the Gingerbread Houses will be available for “silent auction”. This gives an opportunity to individuals and families to bid on a great gingerbread house of their choice to display in their home or business.
The Fall Craft Festival opens the season of holiday bazaars and craft events for Christmas shoppers in the Spring Creek/Elko area. Take time from your weekend and enjoy shopping in comfortable setting among the various booths available to find that special gift for that someone special. Well-made creative items for shoppers’ satisfaction will be available at this extravaganza. Local photography, stoneware, quilts, ceramics, Christmas Ornaments, homemade soaps, and soap dishes, handmade jewelry, wood crafts and refurbished furniture. For the foodies there will be gourmet olives, garlic, oils and many other spices packaged for gift giving, breads, and chocolate delights. Not to mention Scentsy candles, other Christmas items, Miche Bags, totes, Children’s toys, boutique clothing, and bamboo pillows and sheets. Shop and browse in a spacious room with entertainment, great crafters, friends, and members of the Lamoille Women’s Club. And, be sure to stop and purchase tickets for hourly drawings, upon entering the gymnasium. Soup and sandwiches will be available at the Festival, provided by Ruby Mountain Pizza. Before leaving, check your door ticket numbers and then view the fabulous gingerbread houses displayed on the stage.
A big advantage to the FALL CRAFT FESTIVAL is the FREE close in parking. The LWC ladies will also be unveiling their new quilt, Centennial Stars . The 43rd edition of the Quilt will be awarded to the lucky person that purchases an opportunity ticket between now and the Lamoille Country Fair. This year’s quilt has been made by Joyce Kay, and quilted by Terry Bowers, of Ruby Valley. The ladies will be pleased to offer everyone the opportunity to purchase tickets for this gorgeous quilt. Get your tickets early. One does not need to be present to win the quilt.
